Just as other celebrities, internationally recognized superstar Wizkid also had his fair share of the past. The singer whose real name Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun was born on July 16, 1990, in Surulere, Lagos. He has his twelve siblings in total and was born to a Pentecostal Christian mother and an Islam practicing father.

 The starboy had his primary education at Ijebu Ode Grammar School in Ogun State, Nigeria after which he went ahead to Lagos State University, LASU where he later dropped out in 2009.

Persistent as he may be, he still proceeded to Lead City University, Ibadan, Oyo State where he also dropped out after two sessions.

There is a lot of inspiration we can all pick from Wizkid’s old photos which emphasize that there is hope for us to one day successfully achieve our dreams.
