WATCH: WizKid Takes His Timeless Music To The World
Wizkid has found his music home and it’s not in Nigeria.
Over the last two weeks, he has shot the video for his song with Drake, Come Closer and dropped a new single, titled Sweet Love.
Wizzy has also finalized a multi-album deal with RCA Records/Sony Music International and confirmed the release of his album later this year.
These landmark achievements started making headlines when Wizkid mentioned signing a deal with Sony on Drake’s One Dance, which was co-written and co-produced by him.
The deal was also confirmed on RCA Records Twitter page, when they welcomed the ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner to the family.
‘Welcome to the family, @wizkidayo!’ the record label tweeted.

"It’s hard for me to describe what I do, since I work with rhythms from Afro-Beat, reggae, hip-hop, dance hall and others," WizKid told Billboard in a statement. "What’s important to me is for music to be real, authentic, raw and timeless. I don’t wanna be boxed in to any one genre."
A twitter user named ‘WhyFakeit’ leaked the date, with a picture to confirm that Wizkid’s album will drop on June 9 this year.
