The Naija Ninja record label owner and music veteran, Sound Sultan, has revealed that he knew Wizkid as far back as in 2008 when the Starboy and Ojuelegba Crooner was a student of Lagos State University, LASU.
Ayo Balogun, with stage names, Star Boy, Wizkid, has grown to be arguably the biggest export of Nigerian Pop Music in the diaspora. But would one believe that at some point in Wizkid life, he could not cope in Lagos State University (LASU) due to poor academic performances and he was even forced to withdraw from the institution. He later switched schools and enrolled into Lead City University, Ibadan.
Sound Sultan in his deep revelation claimed he had asked a colleague to help keep in contact with Wizkid and help him process a change of institution, but the colleague refused, stating that Wizkid was too ‘razz’.
This revelation was made by Sound Sultan to commemorate Wizkid for a successful journey to the top of the food chain in the Nigerian Music industry. He made this known shortly after the Starboy Music Fest that took place in Lagos.
