Talented Nigerian Music Star, Wizkid left Lagos state University for Lead City University after he had very poor CGPAs of 1.86 & 1.00, final CGPA of 0.91 in 2 semesters and 44 carry overs.
In 2008, Wizkid was admitted to study Sociology at the Lagos State University’s Faculty of Social Science. However, he dropped out to focus on his music in mid-2009.
He was later admitted to Lead City University in Ibadan to study International Relations where he also dropped out after two sessions.
Below is a transcript showing his results for the two semesters in LASU.
As a young man obviously more passionate about his music than education, Wizkid started music at the age of 11 while understudying notable producer, OJB Jezreel.
As a frequent visitor to OJB’s PointBeat Studios at Gbaja Street in Surulere, he got inspired while watching 2face Idibia record songs for his Grass to Grace album. He was also around while Sound Sultan recorded his debut album, Jangbajantis.
Wizkid first came to the limelight when he featured on MI Abaga’s ‘Fast Money Fast Cars’ in 2009. He also featured on Kel’s track ‘Turn By Turn’ which further set him up as an act to watch out for.
He got signed to Banky W’s EME in 2009, same year he finally left school, and started recording his debut album.
Wizkid’s first single, ‘Holla At Your Boy’ was released in January 2010 and became an instant hit nationwide. The rest is hostory.
Today Wizkid is a force to reckon with in the music world, locally and internationally, among stars Tuface, Sound Sultan, MI Abaga & OJB he drew inspiration from.
