Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, better known Wizkid, had a year so good we are just going to call 2018 Wizkid’s year. He kicked off things by becoming the first African act to sell out London’s 20,000-capacity O2 Arena in May. He also performed at loads of international shows like the Reading Festival, UK and the recent 2018 Global Citizen Festival in South Africa, where he performed with the likes of Beyonce, Jay Z and Pharrell. Outside the music, he had a great impact on Pop culture made evident by the fact that his Super Eagles World Cup jersey, designed by athletic apparel giant ‘Nike’ sold out 10 minutes after launching. He took things to a whole new level by walking the Dolce and Gabbana Runway alongside top model, Naomi Campbell, hanging out with Diddy at his US home and getting an official ‘Wizkid Day’ declared in his honour by the US State of Minnesota. Wizkid’s year ends with a high note with his song ‘fever’ named as the top trending songs of the year. His other songs ‘Manya’ and ‘Soco’ also dominated the list.
