About Wizkid

Wizkid needs no much introduction. Despite only breaking through in 2011, he’s become one of Nigeria and Africa’s most successful, followed, and respected artists. In 2022 following his double nominations at the Grammys, the Recording Academy referred to him as an Afrobeat Giant.

Wizkid is an international sensation and has sold millions of records and earned millions from tours and ticket sales around the globe.

During his decade long career, he’s worked with several top intertational acts, including Beyonce, Drake, Skepta, Chris Brown, Damian Marley, and more.

His latest album “Made In Lagos” reached unprecedented heights as an Afrobeats project, cementing his place as one of Nigeria’s greatest cultural ambassadors and placed him at the vanguard of a global Afrobeats wave.
