Many years have passed since they joined the music industry, yet, this comparison ceases to end, and at a time, almost caused a real conflict between the two.
The most appalling part of everything is the comparison of not just the artists, but their music.
We tend to do these things, bringing down the hard work and artistry of a musician who is not our favorite, just to lift up the ones we like
From the onset of their music Careers of Wizkid and Davido, they always seem to drop hits during the same period, and these songs usually become objects of juxtaposition.
This year, the trend, however, continued, when both dropped two smashing hit singles; “Joro”, and “Risky”.
Nonetheless, I’d like to proceed by giving you a brief analysis of both songs;
On the 18th of September 2019, Wizkid dropped his much anticipated single titled “Joro” off his fourth studio album; “Made In Lagos”.
Although the NorthBoi produced song faced severe criticism at the stages of its release, it took us by surprise and did excellently well, topping several charts across the country with millions of streams across several digital platforms.
This Track sees the Nigerian music superstar delivering his signature vocals over a head-nodding mid-tempo beat.
“Joro” is a song with a full blend of Afro-beat sound laced with love-themed lyrics.
During an interview with Capital Xtra in London, Wizkid revealed that the song was a message to someone he loves, telling her that if they are together, they would enjoy themselves.
“Joro” is no doubt, one of the best jams 2019 presented to us, with a soothing melody that makes you want to just relax and vibe to it.
“Risky”, a mega-hit from Davido was released on the 23rd of October 2019, a few weeks after Wizkid’s “Joro”
Consequently, the Speroach produced song features the vocals of Jamaican patois singer; Popcaan, and is off his “A good time “ album.
You can all recall that the song was a result of freestyle on the radio during is USA media tour, which unfortunately didn’t turn out well.
Davido, however, went from being referred to as “talentless” to a “hitmaker”, as he turned a disastrous freestyle into a jam.
The hype surrounding the release of the song was surely worth it as “Risky” ranks among the best songs of the year, which we can’t resist dancing to.
Why “Risky” and “Joro” shouldn’t be compared.
As you have read earlier, both songs are unique in their own way, and we can’t deny that we don’t jam to each of these songs.
A song is a product, and clear evidence of an artist’s artistry, thus it shouldn’t be a tool for comparison.
“Risky” Is great and so is “Joro”. If you love “Risky” more, good, enjoy your “Risky” and let “Joro” be. On the other hand, if you’re a “Joro” lover, do the same!.
If you love both, that’s wonderful!.
On a serious note, “Risky” and “Joro” debate has to stop!!!
