Wizkid has taken his music to an international stage.


Nigerian pop star Wizkid, 26, is the heartbeat of Nigeria's pop scene that has become the darling of the North-American music scene.

Apart from being one of the most prolific Naija pop superstars of his era, Wizzy is a baller. He has a penchant for the finer things in life. He infamously bashed his Porsche Panamera in 2013 and got a new one a few weeks later.

On his collaboration with the King of Afrobeat Femi Kuti titled 'Jaiye Jaiye', Wizkid sang "Aiye ni Miami, Maserati fun iyawo mi, Ferrari Versace, Ferragamo Bugatti, owo lo dun to yii, mo fe lowo bi Adenuga." His name dropping of exotic cars and Italian designers underline his love of the good life.
