Wizkid new song 'Bad To Me' is as bad as the title

After 2 years, Wizkid returns with his first single, ‘Bad To Me’.
Expectations was high since the very first day Wizkid announced the coming of the song. However, ‘Bad To Me’ falls flat of those expectations. It was really bad to me.

The beat’s maker, P2J, drew inspiration from the trendy South African Amapiano sound, which has found a place in the minds of Nigerian music listeners.

Wizkid enters the P2J’s well-laced beat with slicky vocals (as usual). The melody is soothing and comforting.

However, there’s a problem: The lyrics! The lyrics are disjointed and inconsistent. The chorus and post-chorus are riddled with many out of context lines, making it hard to tell what exactly the song is all about.

Wizkid’s repetition of ‘Ee-ye ge-ge, Wa jogede’ in the post-chorus is proof of his weak lyrical ability. Perhaps it’s high time Wizkid employed creative songwriters.

Wizkid might be getting listeners warmed up for ‘More Love, Less Ego’ with ‘Bad To Me’. However, the song is too weak for a lead single. He should consider working with creative songwriters on his subsequent releases.

The only good impact he can hope to achieve with ‘Bad To Me’ is high streams!
