Check out some lovely Quotes from WizKid Below;

“Lagos style is fresh and different. Even with the tailors, they get very innovative with their stuff, with the cuts. When my parents used to make the traditional wares, it was a little bit baggy. But now the tailors are able to infuse the European style, making it slim-fit. Lagos style is different, man. Innovative.” – WizKid 

“I didn’t have accessories when I started my career. Did you see me wearing bling-bling when I did ‘Hola at Your Boi?’ No! I hustled to get money to buy them, and there is no crime if I show it or flaunt it to my fans because they gave me money to buy them.” – WizKid 

“Umm… my favorite Wizkid tune of all time would be ‘Don’t Dull’ ‘cos I recorded the track in, like, 5 minutes. The beat was ready, we went into the studio and freestyled, and it was ready. The song became really, really big, so I think ‘Don’t Dull’ is still my favorite.” – WizKid 

“We still have a lot of work to do as African artists to get more recognition in the U.K. and the U.S., but right now, definitely, we’re getting the recognition. The thing is we have to earn it. Keep working. Stay working.” – WizKid   

“If you’re coming to do an interview with me, you should know about me. It’s not that it’s ‘cos I’m Wizkid; I’d even hate it if you were coming to interview my friend and asked him the same question. You’re here for an interview, so you should know who you’re doing the interview with.” – WizKid
