29-year-old Nigerian recording artist, Ayodeji Balogun aka Wizkid has taken to Twitter to affirm that he is living proof of God’s wonder.
Fascinated by God’s goodness and mercy, Wizkid is giving honour to whom honour is due from a place of sincerity.
Wizkid who was born in Surulere, Lagos has been in the music industry since 2001. He commenced his music career at the tender age of 11.
1st News recalls that he began recording his debut studio album Superstar in 2010 which included hit song “Holla at Your Boy”.
The 29-year-old, apparently feeling grateful for the fame he enjoys, said this in a tweet on Monday.
“Living proof of Gods wonders,” he wrote.
A couple of weeks ago, Wizkid made a shocking revelation during an interview session. The ‘Joro’ crooner revealed that he left his former record label, EME without a penny.
Wizkid revealed during a session with Capital Radio on Tuesday, October 8 that he had no money when he left EME in 2013.
In his words, Wizkid said, ‘When I left the label, nobody knew the story, just my boy Bass who is with me right here. I literally had to leave the label with zero naira at the time and I was Wizkid’.
He continued, ‘I thought to myself, I can’t continue like this. I am thankful to Banky for everything he has done to me, but at a certain point, an artist would certainly want to get to a stage where he wants to progress.’
‘After the release of the album, I remember myself and my boys were gisting and I told them we’ll tour the world with this one’.
