    ARRRRGHHHHH! Wizkid loose that cap! what was the stylist doing? wrong choice for a cover; IMO! the one with the blazer would have been a better choice! I like wizkid but the stylist messed him up on the cover!

    Surely “Whiz Kid” is deliberate.. suggesting he is a whiz at what he does.. everybody knows it “Wizkid”…
