Wizkid and Burna Boy
Fans started noticing a recent partnership between Wizkid and Burna Boy forming and this has shown itself on the songs they collaborate on.
Off Wizkid‘s 2020 album, ‘Made In Lagos‘, the two collaborated on a song titled ‘Ginger‘ which has become fans’ favorite judging by the large number of streams it has amassed.
Their collaboration on Ginger is just an insight into how a full project from the two would sound.
If they should release a joint project, it would break the internet and judging from rumors on the street, one is in the works.
Davido and Mayorkun
In all of Davido‘s collaborations, Mayorkun has proven to be his best collaborator on a song. The first time the two were heard together was on Moyarkun’s ‘Bobo‘ which they replicated on songs like ‘Mind‘, ‘Betty Butter‘, Prayer‘ and the recent one, ‘The Best‘.
Mayorkun has the ability to hook a listener with his groovy wordplays and Davido brings life to a song, which makes it all the better for them to release a joint collaboration.
Wizkid and Tiwa Savage
When was still good between Wizkid and Tiwa Savage, music listeners were treated to a number of great songs from them.
The duo worked together on Malo off Tiwa Savage’s Sugarcane EP and Bad which made it to the deluxe edition of her R.E.D album.
DJ Spinall featured the two on ‘Dis Love‘ off his ‘Grace‘ album. One thing that cannot be doubted is the fact that there is chemistry working for them as they complement each other quite well and make hit songs every time they combine forces.

Simi and Adekunle Gold
In 2016, Simi teamed up with Falz on the collaborative EP, Chemistry, which birthed some hits and was well received.
The project was so good that it sparked dating rumors between the two until it became clear that Simi’s heart was already occupied by Adekunle Gold, the man she would later marry.
Simi and Adekunle Gold have created magic before on songs like ‘No Forget‘, ‘Promise‘, ‘By You’, ‘Bites the Dust‘.
A collaborative project between the two would really bang and sell given their undeniable chemistry and love for each other.
Simi’s smooth voice blends with that of Adekunle Gold and following the success of their latest individual albums, a collaborative project might just be right on time.
