In a recent interview with media personality Madame Joyce, popular singer Crown Uzama, known by his stage name Shallipopi, opened up about his musical inspirations and teased an upcoming collaboration with Grammy-winning artist Wizkid.
Shallipopi expressed admiration for various artists but singled out Wizkid as his primary source of inspiration. He stated, “All the artists are inspirations to me. I pick something from all of them. But Wizkid is my biggest influence.”
The ‘Oba Pluto’ crooner went on to reveal that he has a song with Wizkid set for release in the near future. When asked about the nature of the collaboration, Shallipopi emphasized Wizkid’s growth as an artist, stating, “Wizkid is in his daddy era. It’s not even about money because there are a lot of people with money. I think it’s growth. He’s grown now. You can have money and be stupid so it’s growth.”
While Shallipopi remained tight-lipped about specific details regarding the collaboration, his comments suggest a deep respect for Wizkid’s evolution as an artist and hint at a track that reflects both artists’ musical maturity.
