How Wizkid bagged 17 festival headlining appearances in the US in a calendar year.
Obviously, it’s been a decade since WizKid surfaced in the Nigeria music scene, and yet consciously binding his name into afrobeat history with made in Lagos album.
Almost, five years ago since Drake’s ‘One Dance‘ happened, arguably one of the biggest songs in the world, introducing him internationally and broadening the audience.
Wizkid had always been a risk-taker, introducing sounds at his pace, and relatively considered as the blueprints to a majority of the newbies in the Nigerian music industry.
However, talking about his craft in showmanship, Wizkid’s type of stage presence is like Michael Jackson’s incarnation, the audience went wild at the sound of his music, especially because of his breakout studio album Made In Lagos, the one they always call for headlines, the crowd puller, Wizkid is that superstar.
Made In Lagos is arguably the biggest African album of all time, aside from that the Grammy wasn’t favourable but it also breaks every great record for an African artiste.
