Balogun Ayodeji Adedeji popularly known as wizkid is a Nigerian singer and songwriter.
Wizkid came into the music industry at a time when it was more like a fantasy for any young and aspiring young boy or girl to think of making it big in the industry.
Those were the days when we were only hearing about legendary artists like Fela kuti, sunny Nneji and co. The other most trending artists at that time were local highlife acts like Oliver De coque, Oriental Brothers, Lagbaja and co. In the hip hop industry then, we had people like 2face(now 2baba), D banj and Don jazzy, 9ice, p square, Timaya and co running the show. Music was for matured people.
The good thing about that time was that as an artist, you dare not sing rubbish. Before you release any track, you spend some quality time to put it together before putting it out, otherwise, you face the risk of not getting it heard outside the studio you recorded it.
At a time when most Nigerians listened to foreign artists, you have to be at your best to get them attracted to your tune.
That is how it was, then came wizkid. We will not go into details about everything that happened between that period and now. Today, music in Nigeria has drastically changed. The way he(wizkid) came into the industry (music) it was obvious he had a dream and he has the talent. That dream and talent is what has propelled him to where and what he is today. Talking about the supernatural power of wizkid, wizkid does not only have the ability to make good music, he also has the power to create music out of nothing.
When he was interviewed recently, he was asked if he thinks he has a supernatural power when it comes to making Music, he said he thinks so.
When you think about hit songs like zombie, manya, socco and joro which According to wizkid, has no particular meaning, one will wonder how one will easily bring out any word from no where or meaning at all, and sing sense and meaning into it. That is what wizkid has done over and over again.
Wizkid also have a way of making himself available on the news at all times. It’s either he is trending for a new tune or it will be his relationship.
To confirm the fact the this wizkid have supernatural ability with music, let take a look at Beyonce and 2Baba’s album.
From the very hour that the Beyonce’s lion heart album dropped, it was as if there was only one track in the albums, Brown skin girl ft wizkid. The talks was so centered on wizkid that we almost forgot that that same album featured fellow Nigerian super stard like Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Mr Eazi and others. Personally, I have not listened to any other track in that album since.
Just yesterday, 2baba released another studio album titled ‘2baba warriors’. This album boast of 13 tracks featuring famous Nigerian acts like Tiwa Savage, Burna boy and many others, but once again, wizkid has taken the shine off his counterparts.
