Nigerian singer, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, better known as Wizkid, has made history by becoming the first African artist to headline Rolling Loud, one of the world’s largest music festivals.

In the different videos making the rounds on social media, Wizkid performed the global hit song, “Call Me Everyday,” featuring Chris Brown.


Recall that in April 2022, Wizkid claims that he was paid one million dollars, which is equivalent to N415 million, to perform at the Rolling Loud concert in Toronto, Canada.

This development comes after Rolling Loud announced Wizkid and two other artists, Dave and Future, as the headliners for the three-day concert which will take place at Ontario Place in Canada.

Following the announcement, WizKid hinted on his Instagram story that he was paid $1 million to be one of the event headliners.

His post was a confirmation of Future’s tweet a few days earlier, claiming that he was paid a million dollars to headline a concert.


Other than Wizkid, who became the first African artist to headline the music festival, Marvin Records star, Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema, became the first Afrobeat artist to perform at Rolling Loud.

He performed at the music concert on September 9, 2022.

Fans seem not to get enough of Wizkid’s performance as he becomes a topic of the discussion on the social media app, Twitter, with his devoted fan base hailing the ‘Biggest Bird’.
