Wizkid’s Song ‘Daddy Yo’ Makes It To ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ Thanks To John Boyega



It is nice to see that John Boyega has reached the status where he can have creative control over his work in Hollywood. The British-Nigerian actor who spent an interesting Christmas and New Years’ in Nigeria last year is still paying homage to his roots. John Boyega apparently managed to get Wizkid’s song Daddy Yo on the upcoming Sci-Fi action movie Pacific Rim Uprising.

John disclosed this news via twitter stating….

One of the most exciting things about producing Pacific Rim Uprising was the opportunity to influence the creative choices. So I put @wizkidayo song “Daddy yo” in the movie. Jaegers need afrobeats too! Oh yeah… here’s a video of me listening to this very song. Listening ish..
