Wizkid - Love You Baby

Biography

Born Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun on 16, July 1990, Wizkid is an award winning singer, songwriter, performing artiste and label boss. He started his music career at the age of 11 with a collaborative album with Glorious Five but it wasn’t till 2009 when he signed a record deal with Empire Mates Entertainment (EME), following a blistering turn on M.I’s debut album that he got his big break.

Wizkid became a star with his very first EME single, Holla at your boy and he has not looked back since, dishing out hit singles by the numbers. One of the most in demand artistes, Wizkid participated prominently in the 2012 EME compilation record but announced in 2013 that his sophomore record, Ayo was going to be his last with the label. Subsequent material will be released via his own Starboy imprint which is also home to acts like Maleek Berry and L.A.X.
