He specifically pointed out the symbiotic relationship between the newer generation of artists and their predecessors, highlighting the influence of iconic figures like D’banj and Daddy Showkey.

Asika drew parallels between some of Nigeria’s most celebrated contemporary artists and the trailblazers who came before them. He asserted that Wizkid, one of the most prominent names in the industry today, can be seen as a successor to the legacy of D’banj.
