Wizkid Makes "Sweet Love"

"All I Need Is One Love, All I Need is Your Love"


The opener to Sounds From The Other Side, “Sweet Love” is the seamless follow up to “Oguelegba”, the song that broke international barriers for Wizkid in 2014. Wizkid masterfully incorporates powerful lyrics reminiscent of Fela Kuti's "Sweet Love" and Bob Marley's "One Love" onto the track as he starts off singing "All I Need Is One Love, All I Need is Your Love". Wizkid outdoes himself once again as he shows off a new range that takes his music to new heights.

Can we also discuss how masterful Sarz is as a producer? "Sweet Love" has a traditional AfroBeat feel that will surely awaken Fela's spirit within. The mixture of classic AfroBeat instruments creates a smooth rhythm that will transport you to the motherland and have you swaying along to the beat. 

Sounds From The Other Side is executed almost to perfection, with amazing production from a host of African producers and star studded features, this project does not disappoint.
