It’s the first time the pair have officially worked together

Skepta and Wizkid have teamed up on a new track called ‘Bad Energy (Stay Far Away)’.

The North London grime star and Nigerian Afrobeats singer have known each other for some time, and Skepta appeared on a remix of Wizkid’s ‘Ojuelegba’ alongside Drake in 2015.

However, ‘Bad Energy (Stay Far Away)’ marks the first time the pair have officially worked together. On it, Skepta raps: “I’m getting pounds in my sleep/I’m at the top of the mountain, it’s peak.” Listen to the track below.

For Skepta, it’s the latest standalone track he has released this year following ‘Pure Water’. He also appeared on A$AP Rocky‘s latest album ‘Testing’, on the track ‘Praise The Lord (Da Shine)’.

Meanwhile, the ‘Shutdown’ star was honoured in Nigeria earlier this year when he was awarded a chieftaincy title. He attended a ceremony in his family’s hometown of Ijebu Ode, Ogun state where he was conferred with the chieftaincy title of “Amuludun of Odo-Aje”.

Skepta shared the news on Instagram and wrote in a caption: “Thank you to the Baale, Chiefs of Odo Aje and King for presenting me with my Chieftaincy title today. I am honoured and will continue to put time and love into Nigeria, especially the community of Odo Aje.”
