One of the largest and most well-known African musicians of all time, Wizkid is a well-known personality in the contemporary Afrobeats music scene.

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 singles “Tease Me/Bad Guys” and “Don’t Dull,” “Holla at Your Boy,” brought him into the spotlight later.
