Olamide & Wizkid are two of the finest
music talents of their blessed generation.
From the onset, Wizkid had been touted
to become the future of Nigerian music
while Olamide was labeled the crowned
prince of Indigenous rap music.
These two music talents have since
treaded their different paths to fulfil
‘prophecies.’ Today, Olamide is the biggest
name in the Indigenous rap category while
Wizkid is the most recognised Nigerian
The paths of the two stars first crossed in
2011 when they made Omo To Shan and
showed to the world, the synergy they
share. They further collaborated on songs
like Ori Mi and Confam Ni. The two music
royalties linked up on a freshly released
record titled ‘Kana’ and below is what we
think about it.
Endeavour to share your thoughts in the
@ibironketweets The version of ‘Kana’
which I listened to must be different. It
doesn’t exactly sound like the great piece
most social commentators have dubbed it.
It’s grooviness and measured tempo are
appreciable but we have had offerings with
even better features from both artistes in
‘Kana’ sounds like a song made out of
boredom or perhaps the rush to make
something with the rarity of having two of
the industry’s finest in the studio. Flirting,
which happens to be Wizzy’s favourite, is
the subject here but the expression is
For me, ‘Kana’ falls short of the standard
expected from two of the industry’s finest.
It is the kind of record two C-list artistes
would put out and it would not make it to
the charts but it’s there ‘cos it’s Wizkid &
Olamide. For shortage of great materials,
‘Kana’ would make my list of the week’s
top songs but my hope of replacing it is
@dahnielz Known for his consistency,
Olamide drops new songs on an average
of 2 months within a year. The rapper who
just recently dropped Owo Shayo has
returned to our review list with Kana
Like ‘Owo Shayo’, Kana is a song that
comes with an entirely different vibe from
the shaku shaku wave. An Olamide-Wizkid
feature in the past has not exactly been a
jaw dropping one, the two are obviously
not in their peak unlike they were when
‘Omo To Shan’ dropped.
Kana is just your everyday average song; I
would like to think Olamide is still
experimenting with other sounds to see
which new ‘banger’ will rock our ears.
Not a bad effort, Wizkid’s presence or
absence would not exactly have made any
impact on this song though.
