DescriptionAyodeji Ibrahim Balogun, known professionally as Wizkid, is a Nigerian singer and songwriter. He started recording music at the age of 11 and managed to release a collaborative album with the Glorious Five, a group he and a couple of his church friends formed.
Just in time for Nigerian Independence Day, Wizkid has shared his new single, “Joro.” The track, written and produced with Northboi, arrives with a new candlelit video shot across England and Nigeria. “Joro” marks Wizkid’s second offering this month alone — a few weeks back, he dropped “Ghetto Love.” Earlier this summer, he appeared alongside Beyoncé, Blue Ivy, and SAINt JHN on The Lion King soundtrack cut “Brown Skin Girl.” There’s still no word as to when his long anticipated album Made In Lagos is dropping, but the stream of new material seems to suggest something may be in the works. Watch “Joro” above.
In an interview with Idhe Onome of Tontrends in February 2015, Wizkid said he wears a mixture of street wear and traditional Nigerian clothes. He cited Pharrell Williams as one of his fashion style icons. Moreover, he revealed plans to establish a clothing line following the release of Sounds from the Other Side.
Wizkid yesterday took to his Instagram page to thank God for the gift of life cause he believed everything he has wouldn’t have been possible if not for God
He said “Say man wake Na blessing o. Eledumare thank you 😇”
