In what we can only consider to be a subtle response to Davido's track Pere; Wizkid has dropped Medicine produced by Masterkraft. The track is a reminder that Wizkid hasn't forgotten the type of sound that got him to where his is after a couple of months of going very "Western". We would go as far as to say Wizkid by dropping this track has helped us better define the difference between Afrobeats and Afropop. Tracks like: Come Closer, One Dance, and more have had elements of African but with a very mainstream western pop culture feel. A tune like this though is pure African. A few of us in the office can image our parents doing the 2 step to Medicine but not to come Closer. Medicine  will for sure see big radio play but, Davido has redirected the attention of fans back to him and made sure he looked like a boss while doing it with appearances from Thugga and Rae Sremmurd in the flesh and with the holidays fast approaching we can't wait to see what happens next but Pere is our new favourite turn up track.
