Following a meeting with Wizkid, Akanbi Bamidele Brett aka Cheque declared his decision to transition from Trap to Afropop this year.

The 26-year-old ‘Rockstar‘ singer opened up on Twitter about how hanging out with the Grammy Award-winner shifted his perspective on Afropop.


Cheque is signed to Phyno’s PentHauze music and is a well-known trap artist. In the year 2020, he was one of several breakout stars, and he has continued to release successful songs.

He is mostly known for his Afro-Trap songs like “Zoom”, “History”, “Razor”, “LOML“, but it seems this new year would see the rapper join his colleagues who have switched to Afropop.

The rapper alongside other artists like his boss, Phyno was hosted at a beach party by Wizkid recently in Lagos and according to him, the songs that were being played in the event were Afropop.
