The Wizkid we used to know can still be heard in the extensive catalog the Starboy has grown over the years, but one wonders how he would thrive on the mid-tempo sound Tekno and Runtown have popularised since last year.

“Medicine” brings forth a traditional-Afropop Wizkid we haven’t seen in a minute, a reminder of just how multi-versed he has become since the turn of his global campaign.
