Born Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, WizKid is a Nigerian recording artist, songwriter and performer.


WizKid rose to fame after his ‘Holla at Your Boy’ went viral across Africa. In Uganda alone the song spread like a wild fire receiving a lot of airplay on radio, TV and hangouts.

His prowess earned him a lot of recognition in Nigeria and across the World. He went on to win several awards like BET, MOBO, The Headies and Channel O among others. In 2013,
WizKid was ranked 5th on Forbes list of the Top 10 richest African Artists. If that wasn’t enough in 2014, he was the first Nigerian musician to have over 1 million followers on Twitter.

The 24 year old recently released the cover of the second album titled Ayo (Joy) which is yet to come out. The album features artists like Akon, Wale, Tyga, Banky W, Femi Kuti, Seyi Shay and Phyno. According to MTV Base, the album has suffered several setbacks hence the pushed release date.

His second album is the last album with Banky W’s imprint Empire Mates Entertainment record label as he ventures into doing his own thing.

According to Wizkid, he joined the record label when they barely had anything and to a great extent, he has been able to fetch more money for them, also making a name for himself in the process.

We surely wish him the best.
