Nigerian singer, Abiola Akinbiyi, professionally known as Bella Shmurda, has opened up about an advise Afrobeat star, Wizkid gave when they hanged out together in Ghana.
The young artist during a recent interview with Afrobeats Podcast disclosed that while he was in Ghana with Wizkid, the singer cautioned him against appearing on every song regardless the amount he was offered.
