Skepta and Wizkid’s have always shared a fan of fan type of bromance, both artists equal parts team players and friends to each another. Last December, Wiz opened for Skepta at his intimate homecoming concert and joined the line-up for the BBK homecoming concert earlier this year; Skepta infamously convinced Drake to hop on Wizkid’s classic “Ojuelegba”, and a few weeks ago, dropped by Wizkid’s sold-out set at AfroRebulik.
On “Bad Energy”, their first official single together, Skepta raps “Wiz Got The House Full of Freaks”, following up with a line about spending a week there for an even more colourful imagery of the atmosphere of a Wiz-Skep link-up. Elsewhere on the track, Skepta comes on strong and self-assured with a calm presence adding a compelling edge to his bars. Wizkid’s slightly auto-tuned vocals on the hook adds a laid-back melodious filter to Skepta’s verses. It’s an assist that keeps Skepta’s grim reality amiable and “Bad Energy” lightweight.
