Wizkid & Damian Marley on Spirituality, Fatherhood and Collaboration

The Afropop star and the reggae scion link up to talk about spirituality, fatherhood, collaboration, and what connects Nigeria and Jamaica

Damian Marley became a Wizkid fan after crossing paths with the Afropop star at a New York City hotel while promoting Stony Hill, his 2018 Grammy winner for Best Reggae Album. “Wiz’s melodies are off the chain,” Marley, 43, says on a Zoom call from Miami, where he lives.

Wizkid, on the other hand, had been listening to Damian and his legendary father, Bob, for much longer. “Meeting him in New York, it was just like it was written,” the Nigerian singer, 31, says, joining the call from a stop on the U.S. tour for his stellar fourth album, last year’s Made in Lagos.

The pair teamed up for the first time on the soothing Made in Lagos highlight “Blessed.” “When I got the call to be a part of the project, I was honoured,” Marley says. “As a Jamaican, as Rasta, we definitely have a great affinity toward his culture. We are definitely big fans of anything African.” The calm gratitude of “Blessed” permeates the spirit of both artists, in life and conversation.
