In a new interview with New York’s Hot97 Radio Station, rapper Wale made a controversial statement about how he thinks Drake ‘sounds’ like Wizkid in the song ‘Controlla’ off the latest album ‘Views’.
The video of the interview was shared hours ago by the radio station, and it covers Wale’s thoughts on Meek Mill, Drake, Nigerian artistes like Wizkid, and more.
On how he feels about Wizkid and the sounds coming out of Naija, Wale said, “I’m proud of Wizkid, Davido and Olamide, and a lot of the dope sounds coming out of Nigeria.”
“I just knew it was going to get there because the whole 60% of the swag coming out of Africa comes from Nigeria,” the Nigerian-America rapper said, adding, “I always knew Wizkid. I remember bringing the idea of signing Wizkid to Roc Nation to the guys over there, [but] that was earlier, way before this time. But I knew it was going to get there.”

“I’ve got one with Wizkid,” the ‘Clappers’ rapper said, adding, “I got like seven songs on the internet right now with Wizkid, but like again, that was before
On if he likes how Drake incorporated Wizkid into his album ‘Views‘:
“I like how he is doing,” Wale said and then went on to add that Drake ‘sounds like Wizkid’ on the hit track Controlla off the new album.
On if he meant the ‘Drake sounds like Wizkid’ statement only ‘vocally’:
“The lyrics, everything,” Wale clarified. “That’s my opinion. [Drake] is a phenomenal writer, performer, but I just feel like he sounds like Wizkid in Controlla.
“I do feel like [Wizkid] has a lot of influence on Controlla,” Wale continued. He cited lyrics from the track, like “take my money/have my money”, which he insists is totally Wizkid.
“That’s big-talk Nigeria,” Wale concluded.
