Music: Wizkid ‘Soco'


Afrobeats is my guilty pleasure and boy do I enjoy it. My latest Afrobeats addiction is the recently released Wizkid track 'Soco'.  What does 'Soco' mean? Please tell me if you know cos I don't have a scooby doo, but like with most music that I enjoy, it's the sound... the beat and arrangement.. the way it makes me feel. I generally don't hear lyrics so... forgive me if I am not a true music lover but that's just me! Lol! I don't know what it is - maybe it's the African in me that recognises its own, but I literally can't get enough of Afrobeats and this track.... I have literally had it (along with pretty much anything Davido) on repeat whenever I am in the kitchen cooking and I need something to keep me happy and distracted for the unavoidable amount of time (too long) that I spend in there... (I got kids to feed man!).

Clearly I am not alone in loving this track. It was released on 26 March 2018, and as of this moment (less than a month later) the video for it has already been viewed nearly 3 million times on YouTube; nice bit of change for Wizkid ;). Man, I need to start a YouTube channel quick!
