Back in the days, its pretty hard for a young boy of just 19years to breakthrough in Nigeria music industry, most especially when You don’t even have enough capital to push your talent out for people to listen to, but the little wizkid changed the whole story when He came into the picture in January 2010 with the song we can classify as the biggest song of that moment, Holla at your Boy was released under the imprint of EME owned by BankyW. The song “Holla At Your Boy” performed a miracle that we can say turned Wizkid to a starboy that we are all proud to have today and also gave so many young talented artists an opportunity to prove their worth too.
After the successful story of Holla At your Boy, Mr Ibrahim Ayo Balogun aka Wizkid came out with the Superstar Album in June 12, 2011, the album we can equally say is the best album out of Nigeria so far, the album took the young starboy to many international stages then, with many of the songs on the album being produced by Samklef.
Wizkid Ayodeji Balogun have raised the Nigerian music industry to a higher position by working with so many international artists like Beyonce, Chris Brown, Drake and many more. His 2016 collaboration with Drake got Him an international recognition at that year Grammy Awards.
Wizkid is one of the richest musician in Africa and also the Richest in Nigeria with a total networth of over 20million dollars and still increasing on a daily basis.
In 2016, the starboy wizzy got a record deal with the RCA Records which can be said that its the biggest record deal by any African artist. Also in 2019, He got a partnership with UBA Group with a whooping amount of 3Billion Naira. All of this achievement is a sign that any Ghetto youth can be successful too if they focus on their goal.
