Pon Pon Music: Did Wizkid diss Davido with his new song Medicine? Get the scoop!
According to Synord, When Davido Adeleke announced he was returning back to the basics and going back to his African style of music after being forced by Sony to westernize his style of music, many were expectant of the results of his new strategy.
That back to basics strategy birthed the monster hit “If”, and brought davido back into the certified hit status.
The song which was laced on an instrumental with snares and percussion was very melodious with its distinct kick sounds of Pon pon pon and went on to become a mega hit in the country with one of the song lines “30 billion for the akant o”.
Davido capitalizing on the success of “If”, went ahead to record another similar song and laced on the pon pon pon styled instrumental and he titled it “FALL”. FALL is doing incredibly well also.
Many noticed this trend and called out the star but he addressed them in Olamide’s summer body even shouting pon pon at the beginning of the track.
For Davido, pon pon represents the african sound which has been termed local. Despite this, he is sticking to the local sound claiming it is paying him more.
He went ahead to diss wizkid for his so called western sounds claiming all other sounds apart from the local pon pon sound is not relevant and wizkid responded that artistes either stay local or try and move to the international scene.
Recently, wizkid released the masterkraft produced track titled Medicine, a typical example of the pon pon styled music taking over the industry. The same day davido released pere, a western influenced track featuring young thug, swae Lee and slim jimmy (Rae Sremmurd).
Apparently, the battle between wizkid and davido is not ending anytime soon as fans have began comparing who is killing the pon pon pon African sound more.
Davido with fall or Wizkid with medicine? Wizkid come closer or davido pere?
Whoever fans stick with, one thing is for sure, other artists are jumping on the pon pon pon wave and African music is ready to take over the world. The person pushing it matters not, the desired goal is worldwide acceptance of our music, artistes and culture and we are getting there.
But we have to ask! Who killed the pon pon pon sound better? Wizkid or Davido?
