Who is Wizkid, is the first question we pose. Wizkid is the stage name of Nigerian musician and composer Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun. Wizkid is recognised as one of the largest and most influential African musicians of all time and has a significant role in the contemporary Afrobeats music industry.
The Glorious Five (5), a group he and a few of his church buddies founded, published a joint CD with him when he was 11 years old. He started recording music at that age.
Wizkid and Banky W’s Empire Mates Entertainment (E.M.E.) agreed to a record agreement in 2009. The lead song off his debut studio album, Superstar (2011), which also produced the hits “Tease Me/Bad Guys” and “Don’t Dull,” “Holla at Your Boy,” brought him into the spotlight later.
Who composed Essence for Wizkid is the subject of our discussion.
