Talk of one of Africa's most decorated singer internationally, you just can't omit his name. Wizkid whose real name is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun was born on 16th July 1990.
The Nigerian singer and songwriter remains one of Africa's biggest artistes.
The multiple award winning singer is one of the most revolutionary Afro-pop artistes of the modern era.
Did you know that Wizkid started recording music at the age of 11? That is quite impressive.
The young superstar who was born in Surulere Lagos grew up in an interfaith household with twelve female siblings.
Wizkid's mother is a Pentecostal Christian while his father is a Muslim.
His childhood was influenced by the music of King Sunny Ade, Fela Kuti and Bob Marley.
Wizkid started with the stage name 'Lil Prinz' at the onset of his music career before changing his stage name to Wizkid.
Perhaps the infusion of the name 'Lil' in Lil Prinz and later 'Kid' in Wizkid was mainly because he was very young at the time he started.
However, have you ever wondered if Wizkid will continue to have 'Kid' in his stage name when he gets older? Presently, he is already 30 years old and is no longer a kid. As a matter of fact, he is the father of 3 Boys.
So, in my opinion, perhaps he should change his name to any of the following 15 nice names as he grows older;
Finally, what do you think? Which of these names will you like him to choose?
