British-Nigerian rapper Joseph Junior Adenuga, popularly known as Skepta, has stated that it was more important for him to jump on a song with Nigerian Superstar Wizkid than with Canadian rapper Drake.

Big Smoke, as he is fondly called, recently dropped a 5-track hip-hop project titled 'All in', which also featured Nigerian singer alte Teezee, American singer and producer Kid Kudi and Colombian singer J.Balvin. Speaking at an event organised for the EP release, Skepta stated that it was more important for him to be with Wizkid on a song than Drake.

Me and Drake's first meeting musically was on a Wizkid record. That was more important to me than asking Drake to jump on a song of mine.

Recall that Skepta was essential in getting Drake to jump on Wizkid's hit single 'Ojuelegba' in 2016, a gesture that solidly kickstarted Wizkid's announcement to the western world. According to Skepta, he always knew Wizkid was a superstar, hence the reason he had always been rooting for him.
