5 Of Wizkid’s Biggest Moves Since Leaving EME

It’s been a year since Wizkid departed from
the record label that birthed him and as such
we take a look at the 5 of the biggest moves
the former EMEartiste has made as part of his
25th birthday celebration.
1. Making peace with Davido
It almost looked as if the battle between
Wizkid and Davido had something to do with
his record label EME. Since Wizkid left EME he
has been spotted severally with his frenemy
Davido. The two have not only clubbed
together, they have made money together and
even earlier today Davido wished Wizkid a
happy birthday.
2. Drake
Hottest hip-hop property on the planet Drake
had enough time on his hands to lay few words
on one of the most successful songs off
Wizkid’s second studio album Ojuelegba.
Since the song dropped last weekend, Wizkid
has been another person and that has sealed
his status as arguably the biggest artiste in
Nigeria and Africa. Hottest UK hip-hop and
grime artiste Skepta also was on the track.
3. Disturbing London
Disturbing London, a UK based management
outfit finally came to prominence after EME
left Wizkid’s life.
The 25 year old’s international status has
grown bigger ever since and has been spotted
in the studio with Canadian singer Justin
Beiber, recording three songs with Chris
Brown, linking up with Skepta and the most
recentDrake jumping on his track. Wizkid also
claimed he worked with Rihanna while in Los
Angeles sometime ago, although there’s no
proof of that. He has also worked with rapper
Wale severally before other Nigerian artistes
were able to do so.
Moves.
4. Leaving MTN for Glo
One of the major moves that characterized the
past 365 days for Wizkid is his departure from
Nigeria’s biggest telecommunication company
MTN Nigeria. A move that could backfire when
looked at from another angle. The singer
demanded more money on his contract but
MTN wouldn’t pay but someone else would
because —- Wizzy. Wizkid has since left MTN
for Glo and if his utterance are to be taken
seriously, Glo are paying him twice as much as
MTN paid him. Words on the street say he got
paid N200million.
5. Floating Starboy
The jury is still out on how successful Starboy
has been since Wizkid floated it but it remains
one of the biggest move the singer has made in
his career and in the past year. While Wizkid
launched the record label while he was AWOL
from EME, the company is now independent
and has several producers and an artiste
signed. He’s also changed his manager to
Sunday Are, an industry veteran. We give
Wizkid another 2 years for us to see what he
plans to do with EME
