Wizkid: In 2009, this Nigerian recording artist’s single, “Holla at your Boy,” became a hit in Africa. This young superstar was signed onto Banky W’s label Empire Mates Entertainment. Channel O and Forbes weighed him in as the fifth most bankable African musician. In 2011, he won the Hip Hop World Award for “Next Rated.” He has collaborated with numerous international artists, and is also Pepsi’s highest-paid ambassador to Africa.

Nigeria’s music icon Wizkid has clarified that he did not accept Wasafi Festival invite because of Diamond Platnumz, or his friendship with him, or his purported romantic liaison with Tanasha Donna.


None of those reasons holds water for him.

Wizkid has revealed why he cancelled his busy schedule to attend Diamond Platumz’s recent Wasafi Festival 2019, that was held in Dar es Salaam on November 9.

In a press conference hosted hours before the Wasafi festival event at Hyatt Regency Dar es Salaam, Wizkid clarified the ongoing rumour.

“When Diamond called me I did not think about it twice, just one call and I say, ‘Yoo..am definitely coming!’. Not because I love Diamond, not because I love Tanzania, but the fact that it is a festival that unites all the artistes in Africa.”
