In 2016, Wizkid, who is now signed to RCA/Sony, earned his first Grammy award nomination for his collaboration with Drake.

Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Ty Dolla Sign are some of the international artistes who featured on his EP.

The ‘Daddy Yo’ singer, who recently won his second consecutive BET Award, is set to tour four US cities with rapper Future.
