Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, commonly known as Wizkid has done his country proud once again with his latest Award collection. The 26-year-old Nigerian was officially crowned ‘the coolest kid’ in Africa after winning the BET Best International Act: Africa award in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Wizkid trounced fellow Nigerian acts, Davido, Tekno, and Mr Eazi and other African contemporaries like AKA (South Africa), Babes Wodumo (South Africa), Nasty C (South Africa).

Wizkid has had countless hits throughout the world, with some featuring renowned Canadian rapper Drake. Not only has he worked with Drake on Ojuelegba and Come Closer but also with Major Lazer  on Naughty Ride and many more other international acts.

The future certainly looks bright for Wizkid. We shall continue supporting him as he represents Africa wherever he goes!
