It is a powerful social tool that artistes like Bob Marley, FELA used to influence other areas of human life like politics, and it seems Wizkid is starting to tow that line.

It is no secret that Wizkid enjoys singing about women, their beauty and sexiness, but his lifestyle is inspiring, especially to millions of people across the world, most of whom are Africans. He is a known philanthropist who takes special interest in supporting young African creatives and his effort in tutoring artistes like Mr. Eazi, Terri and Spotless, Ahmed has earned him his reputation as a mentor to young talents.
