Nigeria Music Network gathered popular Nigerian music superstar, Wizkid (Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun), is the winner of this year's African Artist of the Year at the concluded Ghana Music Awards (2013).
Interestingly, Wizkid beat P-Square, Iyanya, and Davido to win African Artist of the Year. For Wizkid to beat the duo of P-Square (Peter and Paul Okoye) is a big deal and also magical or what do you think?
