IT wasn?t long ago when Ayodele Balogun a.k.a Wizkid arrived on the music scene and since that intrusion in a collaboration with M.I on ?Fast Money, Fast Cars? on the Talk About It album in 2009 things have started happening for the Lagos Island born Young man who is singing his way into the heart of the international music lovers.
Though he is currently on tour of the United States on the wings of EME with Banky W. and Skales yet things are happening for him back home.
On Sunday while he was reliving the ecstatic feeling of taking on the Washington D.C crowd? In the United States of America where it is said, he put up a superlative performance the Future Awards holding in Porthacourt, Rivers state, Nigeria, was singing his name and put up his name in gold as the ?Musician of the Year?.
Just on Saturday, Vanguard published an article ?Nigeria?s Reigning Superstars of Twitter? and it was same Wizkid who reigned supreme to be followed by the Kokomaster. His recorded reaction to winning Future Awards? ?Musician of the Year? has been ?I?m just what you made God!..Blessed!? on Twitter.
The ?Pakurumo? crooner and his crew are expected to stay back until September 2, 2012 when the tour will be wrapped up.
Before the end tour, they will cover nine states in North America including Chicago and Atlanta. They will also perform in Toronto, Canada. The tour will wrap up on September 2, 2012 with a performance in New York.
and Banky W goofed
NO doubt Bankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W is having a swell time in the United States along with Wizkid, Young Skales and the other EME crew, at least most of his Tweets is a clear attestation to that, where the top-gun R&B show-stopper has quipped excitedly and repeatedly until the singer, after the Sunday show, cast an air of gloom on the whole joyride when he claimed someone stole his phone.
He was so sure his phone was stolen that he tweeted ?When you have had a great night but somehow, someone steals your phone. Argh? and he wasted no time in telling the whole world what losing his phone means to him by adding ? The most depressing thing about it isn?t even the lost contacts. My entire new album is on that phone. Ideas, melodies, lyrics, etc?.
But he was only to eat his words some hours later when the phone was found. Banky W was so full of thanks but he never cleared the air on whether the phone was actually stolen in the first place or misplaced, all we knew is his thank-you tweet ?Biiiiig thank you to the kind person that found my phone and got it back to me. All is well with the world?
