Today’s focus on Tori4Town entertainment treds will be on one of Nigerian’s biggest artists in the whole of Africa, I’m talking about our very first-ever Grammy-winning artist in Nigeria, Wizkid.
Wizkid, whose real name is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun AkA Wizzy or Starboy. He is one of Nigerian’s biggest artists and one of the most decorated ever. He is also considered as one of the most revolutionary Afropop artists of the modern era.
He was born on the 16th of July, 1990(age 30 years old) in Surulere, Lagos State. He has won awards like MTV Europe Music Award for Best African Act, Grammys Etc. He is a proud father of three lovely boys, Boluwatife, Ayo, and Zion from three beautiful ladies.

He has been a great inspiration to so many up-comers, as they see hope regardless of their poor backgrounds. Apparently, many die-hard fans tend to be like Wizkid as he always portrays an honest, simple, and egoless lifestyle, especially on social media. His fashion sense has been regarded as the top niche in the entertainment industry, and he has surpassed most fashionable artists like Burnaboy, Davido, Adekunle Gold, etc.
It’s really rare seeing our celebrities sleepy or sleeping. We could barely see their tired face without makeup or sleepy face since they also want to look good in pictures or videos. So, this is our beloved Wizkid, deep in his sleep on a plane.
Well, enough of his biography and stuff, let’s focus on some rare photos of him that you might not see unless you dig deep on the internet.
Wizkid with Don Jazzy’s Dad
This is Wizkid with Don Jazzy’s Dad, you might be wondering where they, I suppose, they might in the studios, or maybe Wizzy paid a visit to him.
Wizkid in traditional attire
In this photo, you can see him, Banky W, and other (I can’t remember) people, rocking a western Nigerian traditional attire, looking so young and so not rich.
This is him, looking so young with a terrible but funny looking hairstyle, which was really popular among boys that year. Trust me, he killed the fashion industry and almost every guy followed his footsteps. Till date, he remains out fashion king.
Wizkid and Tiwa’s loved-up photo
This is an expected photo of him and Tiwa Savage been romantic on stage while performing Malo by Tiwa featuring Wizkid. They really look like couples but are literally not together anymore. But according to Tiwa Savage, they were never in a serious or love affair, they were just friends, or what you would call “Besties”. So there you have it, they were only besties and nothing attached.
He is literally an artist who is barely active on social media, unlike other artists. He sometimes put out good photos of himself, and sometimes by fans. He is one artist who loves been himself on photos and videos, but some rare photos of him were recently dug out from the net, which literally portrays the true Wizzy.
I really don’t know why I find these photos hilarious, especially the sleeping Wizkid. He looks really cute in these throwback photos, especially with Donjazzy’s dad. You could also spot him with his former boss Banky W, where they all wore western traditional attire.
No doubt that he is regarded as one of the most handsome Nigerian artists and fans are thrilled at his ever young looks and personality. You could tell from these throwback photos compared to his recent photos that his looks haven’t changed, as he still looks 19.
Over 10 years of his career, he has proven ever strong and persistent and will remain a rare gem and an inspiration to other up comers and artists.
