Pop Star Wizkid covers Y! Magazine’s March 2013 Issue | Speaks on Music, Struggles & the Future



Wizkid - Y! Magazine March 2013 Issue - March 2013 - BellaNaija005

Did Wizkid just confirm the split with EME? Inside Y! Magazine’s March 2013 Issue, the Nigerian pop star speaks exclusively to the publication on his struggles, fame and the future.

But on the trending topic that he is no longer part of the eponymous music label, Wizkid, who strikes a pose on the cover in a denim shirt and jeans, played coy and said “EME is my family”.

Speaking on the issue, Chude Jideonwo, Editor-in-Chief of Y! said “As this magazine went to print, the rumours were just about confirmed in public and sources had certainly confirmed in private. The amazing talent powerhouse called Wizkid had aggressively parted ways with EME, the label powered by Banky W – interesting news in light of what he told us only weeks before.”

This issue also features interviews with Linda Ejiofor, Moet Abebe, Seyi Shay, Uru Eke and Ms. Jaie. Executive director of Sahara Group Tonye Cole also features in the youth-inspiring publication.

The magazine also presents its annual “New Establishment” list, profiling the most promising young Nigerians across the world – all under the age of 35. “Wizkid is, ultimately, just one of 50 young people below 35 carefully selected by our team of curators,”  Jideonwo said. “As always our New Establishment list profiles young people who aren’t red carpet fixtures or necessary celebrities, but who define the spirit of the age and are set to shine in 2013.”

And don’t miss Y!’s annual Sexiest list! The 2013 list features Africa’s Sexiest Man Alive and Africa’s Sexiest Women Alive.

    Here’s my 2 cents on Wizkid covering Y!….. who else could be more appropriate to grace the all new cover of Y! Magazine if not Wizzy himself? The cover & photos are simply awesome!
