Song of the Day – “Ojuelegba” by Wizkid
Wizkid recorded “Ojuelegba” for his second studio album, Ayo (2014). The song was written by Wizkid and produced by Legendary Beatz.
The song takes its title from a popular area of metropolitan Lagos; a bus stop and an area by the name Ojuelegba. In it, the singer talks about his humble beginnings as a musician as well as the life and challenges of the people of his beloved neighbourhood. Many people who identify with that area and indeed the whole city of Lagos have said that Wizkid’s Ojuelegba evoked nostalgic feelings in them, especially those who are now in the diaspora.
