Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun (born 16 July 1990), better known by his stage name Wizkid (sometimes stylised as WizKid) is a Nigerian recording artist, songwriter and performer . . .
Recently, Wizkid made his fans scream ‘Daddy Yo’ when he announced he would be releasing four mixtapes this year.
The singer arrived Nigeria in December for Christmas and also welcomed the New Year in his motherland. He spent most of 2016 in United States and across world as he continue to promote his brand internationally.
Baba Nla who said 2017 will be one to remember also hinted there’s a mixtape in the works with former Mavin star, Wande Coal.
Wizkid was awarded Artiste of the Year and Best African Artiste at the 2016 Headies and Soundcity MVP, respectively.
TheCable Lifestyle reported that the Afro-pop singer was arguably the best Nigerian artiste of 2016, largely as a result of his award haul, Grammy nomination for his part in Drake’s album, a global tour, and a string of hit songs.
Wizkid, who took a doctor-ordered rest in December 2016 after being on the road for a long time, says 2017 will be memorable.
“4 mixtape’s 2017! With some of my amazing friends… 2017 will be the one to remember,” the ‘Daddy Yo’ singer said on Twitter.
Wizkid is also expected to release his ‘Sounds from the other side’ EP sometime in 2017.
