Wizkid & Damian Marley speak on their song together “Blessed”


Featuring on Rollingstone’s “Musician on Musician”, Wizkid and Damian Marley reveal what went down when they collaborated on the song “Blessed” together.

“Blessed” is off Wizkid’s very successful album “Made in Lagos”. The album made good features and good songs.

However, Damian said during studio sessions, Wizkid played several tunes for him and that particular one caught his attention. So they decided to write a song and that was “Blessed”.

“I was on tour. Both of us had gigs out in London. One night after one of the concerts, we all went to the studio, got together, and Wiz played a bunch of beats for me. That was the one that grabbed my attention the most. We started writing the song in the studio, together, just feeling the vibe,” Damian Marley said.

Wiz on the other hand, described the song as “magic before his eyes”. He also revealed that it was one of the most amazing sessions he had.

“That’s the beauty of that record! Just the way it starts, the tone of it, the raspiness of the vocals, like, “Ah, that was beautiful!” From the first time I heard it in the studio, I just went mad. I couldn’t believe it. It was like magic right before my eyes. If I’m being very honest with you, that was one of the most amazing sessions I’ve ever been in, for real.”
