Confident, playful and down-to-earth are some of the words that best describe the person of Ayo Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid. Over the years, the Wizkid brand has evolved meteorically. From E.M.E’s top act to Star Boy boss and working with Disturbing London, an international label. In a recent interview, the vibrant young man speaks on working with Tuface, Chris Brown as he talks about his five-year plan for Star Boy, career and other things.
You talked about doing a song with Chris Brown, when is it dropping? And did you pay for it?
Yeah, yeah I have a song with Chris Brown. Done actually; we are shooting the video in about two or three weeks. It’s going to drop early next year. Did I pay to do it? No, no payment at all. I don’t pay anyone for collaborations men. I’ve never paid for collaboration because I’m confident of the type of music that I make.
What’s your five years’ plan for Star Boy?
Yeah, we are working on the first Star Boy album now. We are shooting a video for all the songs. I’m pretty much trying to create a platform and just help as many talents as I can. Just put a lot of young people on. There are a lot of talented young people in this country but the platform is not there for everyone. So I’m going to try in my own little way to help.
