Mixed reactions trail Drake absence from Wizkid’s ‘Come closer’ video – HOJ Talks

By  | 

Come Closer is yet another fresh tune from Africa’s finest Wizkid featuring Ace rapper Drake. Wizkid’s ‘Come closer’ video is officially out but with few criticisms from fans across the globe. After the initial leak on an episode of OVO Radio on Beats 1, it was only just (officially) released across most music platforms on Friday, April 7, 2017, although it has received loads of airplays before the official release with comments from fans commending the efforts put together by bringing this great track to reality.

And as Wizkid promised on Instagram, he didn’t take too long to release the official video for the future hit. Unfortunately, Drake was absent from the video – which only featured his vocals. Drake’s non-appearance was so obvious as his verse had no one to mime it, except Wizkid, who fixed things creatively.
