List of Awards Won By Wizkid

Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, a.k.a Wizkid, got his big break in the music industry with his hit, “Holla at your boy” in 2009. He’s a Nigerian Singer and Songwriter.

Prior to dominating the music industry, this now African giant first recorded music at age 11 with group members of “Glorious Five” – a group he formed with some church members.
