You can no longer talk about black talents without mentioning Wizkid, Davido and Stormzy. And when you talk about Nigerian talents who have gone beyond the shores of Africa to do mighty things and return gloriously, you will constantly have Wizkid’s name popping out of your mouth all the time.

Just yesterday, Wizkid has proven himself again at the MOBO Awards held at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, United Kingdom by beating Jay –Z, Cardi B, Kendrick Lamar as the best international artiste, 2017 and we should dance to celebrate our own.


Not long ago, the Ojuelegba singer made it to the 2018 edition of “Guinness World Records” book as the first Afro-pop artiste with the most played song on Spotify having over one billion streams and surpassing hits like Adele’s “Hello”, Bruno Mar’s “Grenade” and John Legend’s “All Of Me”.

Wizkid collaborated with Drake – the Canadian rapper, on the single “One Dance” which they co-produced and wrote together.  Wizkid went further to feature him in his single “Come Closer“; a stellar track which, to no one’s surprise, came out on top in Konbini’s recent poll of the best Nigerian-international collaboration of 2017.

Other artists who went with notable awards are Davido, who clinched the best African Act award and Stormzy who actually stole the show by packing three awards as the best male artiste, best grime act and best album 2017.

Our eyes are still open to finding African trailblazers to sing praises for them and all those who think Wizkid, Davido and Stormzy doesn’t deserve the awards should just go and win their own or better still
