The singer is currently vying for the award of most travelled African star and was recently touring Europe in the company of Chris Brown before going to the Dominican Republic, to record and shoot a video with Tinie Tempah, titled ‘Mamacita’.

2. A talented singer

No one can argue this! C'mon his music has even earned him recognition across Africa. Enough said!

4. He's rich

Wizkid is rich! All those endorsements and features has earned the singer a lot of cash - the main reason why girls are after him.

Not like some people that will be breaking bottle everywhere.....

Thank you Wizzy! Thank you!

7. Let's not forget he has this never-ending love for his fans

 

He's hosting a 'free for all' concert this year at the Shrine and on the Island.
