Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, aka Wizkid, began his musical career at age 11 in Lagos, Nigeria. His first recording, Lil Prinz, was created in 2001 in collaboration with Glorious Five, a band formed by Balogun and his church friends. In 2006, he devoted himself entirely to music, first collaborating with various Nigerian pop artists, including OJB Jezreel, Naeto C and Banky W. In 2011, he was ready to record his first studio album as a solo artist: Superstar was released through Empire Mates Entertainment and was acclaimed by critics and audiences across Africa, making him a star in his native country. After several delays and disagreements, Balogun released his second album, Ayoin (2014), which included the track “Ojuelegba”. This single confirmed its popularity in Nigeria, in addition to being remixed by Drake and Skepta, who made it known internationally. Wizkid collaborated with Drake on his hit “One Dance” in 2016. In March 2017, it was announced that Wizkid had signed a contract with RCA and Sony International, who released his third album, Sounds From the Other Side. Then Wizkid focused on his African label, Starboy, distributing viral records like “Soco” and partnering with brands such as Puma. Wizkid has established itself as a pillar of African entertainment. On his fourth full-length album, Made in Lagos (2020), Wizkid pays homage to his origins. The album, which includes guests such as Burna Boy, Skepta, Damian Marley, H.E.R and Ella Mai, among others, is the longest-running Nigerian record of this century on Billboard’s World Albums chart, as well as the only African album to be certified gold in the United States, thanks to half a million units sold. Nominated for a Grammy Award, the single “Essence” became the first Nigerian song to enter Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, also reaching #1 on American urban radio. The deluxe version of the album, nominated for a Grammy Award, includes a remix with Justin Bieber of “Essence” (feat. Tems), which reached #9 on the Hot 100 chart, in addition to winning a BET Award for Best Collaboration, as well as the NAACP Image Award for Best International Song. Made in Lagos, his collaboration with Grammy Award-winning Beyoncé, five sold-out concerts at London’s o2 Arena and a sold-out concert at the Accor Arena in Paris prove that Wizkid is a global phenomenon here to stay.
