Surulere to the world!
From Drake and Skepta being featured on Wizkid‘s “Ojuelegba” remix (click here if you missed it), to Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz dancing to the track (click here if you missed it) and now being spotted with Kendrick Lamar. It comes to mind how far the Starboy has come from his debut single “Holla At Your Boy“.
We first heard him on M.I‘s “Fast Money, Fast Cars” and when he dropped “Holla At Your Boy” in 2010, everyone knew he was here to stay!
Off his debut album “Superstar”, the song was produced by DJ Klem (Knighthouse) and Vebee. The visuals for the single, directed by Patrick Ellis, was shot at Dowen College in Lekki, Lagos.
A huge song of the year, the video featured cameo appearances from Ice Prince, Skales, D’Prince, Banky W and several others.
Fun facts: Wizkid won the 2011 The Headies Next Rated award for “Holla at Your Boy”. The video was also nominated for “Most Gifted Newcomer Video” at the 2011 Channel O Music Video Awards and for “Best Afro Pop Video” at the 2011 Nigeria Music Video Awards (NMVA).
It has been an upward journey for Wizkid since then and the Nigerian music scene is still very much in love with the one and only Starboy!
