Popular Nigerian gospel singer, Lanre Teriba has stirred online debate, after he described A-list Nigerian singer, Wizkid as an upcoming singer in America.
The singer said this in a recent interview on Esplashon TVC.
According to Teriba, the multi-award winning singer is yet to gain a lot of momentum in America unlike he has gained for himself in Nigeria.
Speaking further, Teriba noted that Nigerian acts are not regarded abroad.
He said, “I travel a lot and I can tell you that Nigerian artistes are still seen as local musicians in the lens of foreigners. Even Wizkid is seen as an upcoming artiste.”
His statement has since caused a stir online as a few have shared their thoughts on it.

Wizkid, Davido, Burna boy, Mr Eazie, etc are very huge outside Africa, NIGERIA artist are well honoured and respected across the globe, Lanre Teriba should not come and give us false info. Does he know how big Tiwa Savage,2Baba,Seyi Shay,Runtown,Femi kuti is across the Globe… Lanre Teriba pls check ur balance.”
