The Nigerian entertainment market is endlessly fascinating because practically everything becomes news. This time, “Biggest Bird” Wizkid is the news’ main story because he recently unfollowed everyone on Instagram.
The Starboy Frontline Act, who recently indicated forthcoming new music, may have cleaned up his Instagram page to serve that purpose. Ayodeji Balogun, better known by his stage name Wizkid, is a talented singer, songwriter, and performer from Nigeria. After unfollowing everyone on Instagram save one person, he stirred up conversation among followers. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter is known for his enigmatic celebrity persona. He is not unfamiliar with removing all of the images from his social media pages or unfollowing a significant portion of his followers.
Three days after suggesting on Twitter that he might be releasing new music soon, Big Wiz has continued down his cryptic path by unfollowing everyone (even his team) on Instagram save for street-hop artist and vocalist Naira Marley. Although there is no evidence linking Wizkid and Naira Marley, their interactions over the years have revealed that they respect and adore one another, leading to musical collaborations.
This won’t be the first time artist trends over something like this as Afrobeat Colleague Davido also played a similar hand in the lead-up to his “Timeless” album release. Netizens however, will be interested in seeing how things play out in the coming weeks as his MLLE Tour also warms up.
