The song which describes Wizkid’s early life as a musician opened new doors for Wizkid as an international artiste and also establish a working relationship with Canadian rapper, Drake who went on to jump on the track along with British-Nigeria grime artiste, Skepta. Across 2015-2016, Ojuelegba was everyone’s favourite at any event.


It was a song that could soothe your feelings, inspire you and according to Skepta it could be a song that could gear you up when you’re down.


However, Runtown’s Mad Over YOU could step up to be the new Ojuelegba and also Africa’s best song of 2017. The Del B-produced song tells of Runtown’s endless love for an unknown girl telling her of his non-stop love for her. Mad Over you has started topping most Nigerian charts and has also gone to be No.38 on billboard charts.
