Nigerian pop singer and songwriter Ayodeji Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, has been booked for shows for the next three years.
The ‘Soco’ crooner made the announcement on his Twitter handle @wizkidayo, where he wrote, “booked for three years”.
Wizkid has released several hit tracks this year including ‘Soco’, ‘Fake Love’, ‘Manya’ and ‘Nowo’.
‘Soco’, in which he featured Ceeza Mili, Spotless and Terri, is a fast-paced Afro-beat tune that has grown to become the most favourite song for the ‘Shaku Shaku’ dance.
In February 2014, Wizkid became the first ever Nigerian musician to have over 1 million followers on Twitter.
He went on to become the first Afro-beat artiste to appear in the 2018 Guinness World Records, for his contribution to Drake’s hit song ‘One Dance’.
The 27-year- old recently sold out the O2 hall in London; and is set to release a much anticipated album later in 2018.
He started recording music at age 11 and managed to release a collaborative album with the Glorious Five, .
