Lagos’ chart-topping singer takes his global afro-club sound to the Carnival crowd. Recorded live in London.
A gifted musical prodigy from a young age, Wizkid’s first album Superstar in 2009 seemed particularly prescient - it produced a stream of singles, most notably Holla At Your Boy and Tease Me. Similarly his follow-up album Ayo produced a raft of singles, and caught the ear of a certain Canadian R&B sensation. Soon afterwards Wizkid earned his first number one record across several countries with One Song a collaboration with Drake, to which Drake returned the favour guesting on Wizkid’s track Come Closer. Wizkid’s fame and fortune might seem like destiny, especially if you saw the aftermath of his crashed Porsche, but his entrepreneurial nouse, combined with his gift for connecting to his legion of fans through song, is entirely in his own hands.
