Happy Birthday Wizkid!!

Wizkid The Nigerian talented singer, songwriter and performer, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun a.k.a Wizkid is a year older today.

The superstar turns 23 today (born on July 16, 1989).

He burst on national prominence in 2009 when he collaborated with M.I on his song, “Fast Money, Fast Cars” on the ‘Talk About It’ album. His distinct voice, singing style and penchant for great songwriting made people sit up and notice and it didn’t take long for Banky W to sign him on to his Empire Mates Entertainment record label. After featuring prominently on Banky’s “The W Experience” album to much acclaim, it was a matter of time before he released his own, much anticipated album, ‘Superstar’. After a very successful album launch, with his career being white-hot right now, the sky is certainly not the limit for this young man.

His Biography

He kicked off his singing career at the early age of 11 when he recorded his first song with one of Nigeria’s celebrated music icons, OJB Jezreel. He went on to record a 7-track album, which he released in his church in Lagos, under the name of Lil’ Prinz; this was just a stint that earned him a remarkable deal of encouragement and recognition from family, his church and other artistes.

Years later in 2006, with a new stage name, and a passion for making music and God-given talent, Wizkid got back into the studio to hone his craft. He continued to develop as a Singer and Songwriter by working under some of Nigeria’s biggest Musical names such as OJB Jezreel, Naeto C, Ikechukwu and many others. Over the next few years his talent as a Singer and Songwriter became evident and it resulted in Wiz being prominently featured alongside some of the biggest Artistes in Nigeria’s Music Industry to much critical and commercial acclaim.

2009 would prove to be Wizkid’s break-out year, as his collaboration with M.I on “Fast Money, Fast Cars” on the Talk About It album drew major attention to his distinct voice, singing style and penchant for great songwriting. He went on to feature on Kel’s “Turn by Turn”, the Barcelos radio jingle and many other high profile projects. He also got signed to Banky W’s Empire Mates Entertainment, and featured prominently on Banky’s “The W Experience” album.

At the age of 20, this extremely talented and charming young man had already achieved so much, thanks to his drive and focus for turning his life’s experiences into incredible music. In 2010, he released his first singles, “Holla at your Boy”, “Gidi Girl” and “Ori Mi” with label mate, Skales; then there was the hit song, “Tease Me” which was just a studio freestyle that got leaked online and turned into a big hit in different parts of Nigeria and among Nigerians worldwide.

Wizkid is currently working on his EME Records debut album, and has released his first two hit singles entitled “Holla at your Boy” and “Gidi Girl”.

Happy Birthday Wiz! Here’s wishing you many more happy years!
