Nigerian international act Ayo Balogun, aka Wizkid or Big Wiz, today, July 16, clocked 31 years old.

One of these many people is his signee, Terri.
Terri wished his boss a very happy birthday, saying he has never met anyone quite like him. Terri went on to hail Wizkid in his birthday message, calling him words like “Don” and “Warrior”. He said Wizkid was not at all what he thought he would be and likened his words to that of a prophet.
“I have never met a person Like you, probably never would, your distinction is on levels, before I met you everything I imagined you to be was a joke! You a soldier! A don! A king! A warrior! You say a thousand words in a sentence, in a statement, almost like a prophet this man! I love you too much it’s crazy! Happy birthday my king @wizkidayo !”
