Made in Lagos crooner, WizKid covers British Vogue

Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, 'Wizkid' graces the cover of British Vogue 2021.

In his interview, the 31-year-old Grammy award winning Afroabeats Superstar reveals,

“There are no amount of words I can put together to make you understand what Lagos is, to explain the hustle, or the political injustice, the strength of the people or the number of amazing creatives,” he says. “To fully understand it, you have to experience it for yourself. Go to Lekki, go to Ojuelegba [a particularly vibrant area of Wizkid’s neighbourhood], go to the clubs and you’ll see what the music does to the people.”

 “I know there is a saying that if you make it New York, you can make it anywhere, but shit, that’s a lie. If you can make it in Lagos, you can make it anywhere,” he says, pausing to reflect on the thought. “And I’m living proof.”

He was styled by Micaiah Carter and interviewed by Chioma Amadi
