Award-winning American singer, Ne-Yo has said that he wishes he came up with the hit song, “Essence” which is owned by Nigerian superstar singer, Wizkid and features Tems.
In an interview with American entertainment magazine, NME, the music star spoke about songs he liked.
When asked about the song he wish he had written, he responded with Wizkid’s “Essence“.
According to Ne-Yo, the song is one of those records that just makes sense and that he wishes that he had thought of it first.
He also revealed that he had once met the Smile crooner although he wasn’t sure the Nigerian superstar would remember their meeting.
Ne-Yo also stated that he was proud of the moves Big Wiz has been making and said he was one of the new generation artists he respects.
Speaking on Essence, he said; “It’s one of those records that just makes sense. They could run it back 17 times and you ain’t gonna say nothing, you’re just gonna let it happen. I wish that I’d have thought of it first.
I met him once, real quick, he wouldn’t remember. But I’m super proud of that dude for making the moves that he’s making. He’s one of the new generations that I can genuinely say I respect.”
