BirthdayShoutout: Wizkid ‘Star Boy’ Ayo turns 30!

Whether you know him as Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, Starboy or Wizkid, the same thing comes to mind, he is a superstar. Today EntertainmentSA celebrates him and his notable achievements in the music scene.

The Nigerian music star who was born on this day in 1990 has come a long way since he came into the spotlight in 2011 with his hit song “Holla at Your Boy”, the lead single from his debut studio album Superstar.

“Tease Me/Bad Guys”, “Don’t Dull”, “Love My Baby”, “Pakurumo” and “Oluwa Lo Ni” were also released as singles from the Superstar album. In February 2014, Wizkid became the first Nigerian musician to have over one million followers on Twitter. Ayo, his self-titled second studio album, was released in September 2014. It was supported by six singles: “Jaiye Jaiye”, “On Top Your Matter”, “One Question”, “Joy”, “Bombay” and “Show You the Money”. Wizkid left E.M.E after his contract expired.

Happy birthday Starboy!
