I’ve been waiting on this collab to happen for some time now. The bromance between Skepta and Wizkid is cool but it is now cemented with an official track. The last time we saw them on a song together was that Ojuelegba remix back in 2015 and since then they’ve been forming a #Naijaboyz friendship. Well, they finally collaborated on “Bad Energy” with Wizkid on the hook and Skepta handling the verses, and it’s…not bad. It’s not what we’re used to from Skepta’s usual high energy vibes but with Wiz on the song, he may have had to tone it down a bit. Imagine him on a song like this, it probably wouldn’t be cohesive. The song does have a nice bounce to it, thanks to Skepta and Sarz on the boards, and definitely has replay value but I have a feeling this track might come and go. If you’re more of a fan of Skepta’s aggressive tunes, then “stay far away” from this one.
Interestingly enough, Skepta tweeted this out back in 2014 and it has come full circle.
Stay far from bad energy.
