…By Dorcas Funmi for TDPel Media. Nigerian singer, Joseph Akinfenwa Donus, widely known as Joeboy, recently shared how the Grammy award-winning artist Ayo Balogun, professionally known as Wizkid, has influenced the music careers of young artists.


Speaking on the Body & Soul podcast, Joeboy emphasized that Wizkid played a crucial role in instilling belief in young artists that they could achieve stardom at a young age.
