He released his debut album, Superstar in 2011 and has continued to experience a fascinating rise in his music career.
Indeed, the 30-year-old is one of the biggest acts to emerge from Africa. His contribution to the Afrobeats scene has also made him one of the most marketable celebrities in Nigeria.
In 2016, Wizkid achieved international recognition following his collaboration with Drake on the global hit, “One Dance”. Indeed, the song reached number one in 15 countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
In March 2017, Billboard magazine reported that Wizkid signed a multi-album deal with RCA Records. Further, his third studio album – Sounds from the Other Side – was released by RCA Records.
