When I first heard this act do the hook on the track Fast money Fast Cars from M.I's "Talk About IT" album in 2009,I just felt he was gonna get to the top of the Nigerian music industry 1 day and at the moment still only 21 Ayo Balogun whose Stage name is Wizkid is already Making it Big.
Works with Jesse Jagz,Ice prince,kel,E-ko,Samklef,Da prince,Olamide,Yung6ix,Mochedda,Skales,Banky W,M.I and other prominent Nigerian acts Catalysed the rise of Nigeria's YoungFELA as he calls himself on his twitter page...follow @wizkidayo..
Signed to Empire Mates Entertainment whose C.E.O is the "Kele Master" Banky W,wizkid is Nigeria's fastest rising Entertainer in the music industry.The single Holla At your Boy which was officially released on Jan 1st 2010 top many charts within and outside the Nation,other singles like Gidi girl and tease Me dropped as well and didn't do bad in Charts as well.The video for Holla At your Boy shot by Patrick Elis Top Video charts as well.Don't Dull the single which got people talking about the AXE(ASK) your mommy ish was also release,which was also followed by Wiz Party.
