weekend’s exclusive interview with the international entertainment platform, MTV Iggy.
In addition to this, Wizkid won two awards at the recent NEA awards in New York in the Best Pop/R & B artiste and Best Album of the year categories.
He will be slugging in out with D’Banj, Sarkodie, Camp Mulla and Mi Casa on Nov. 11 at the aanual MTV EMA awards in Frankfurt, for the Worldwide Act category.
Unknown to many music fans, Wizkid recently recorded major collaborations with international music acts like Young Jeezy, The Game, Kardinal Official, Wale, and the King of Dancehall, Beenie Man. The CDs are due for release in the US and Europe on the respective artistes record labels.
