He revealed that meeting music sensation Wizkid in 2018 was the catalyst that fueled his belief in his own success.

The talented artist expressed his admiration for Wizkid, emphasizing how the Grammy-winning star had inspired countless young individuals to believe in their own potential.

Recalling the pivotal moment, Joeboy shared, “I knew that I would achieve success the day I met Wizkid. In 2018, I had the opportunity to accompany Mr. Eazi to a show. At that time, I often found myself in Mr. Eazi’s shadow, observing and learning.

“As they engaged in a conversation, I stood in the corner, and unexpectedly, Wizkid called me over.”

Initially, Joeboy assumed that Wizkid must have been referring to someone else, but to his astonishment, the renowned artist was indeed beckoning him.

Reflecting on the moment, he stated, “That was the sign I had been waiting for. It was then that I decided to go all in, knowing that Wizkid believed in me.”

The “Baby” hitmaker expressed deep appreciation for Wizkid’s influence on the Nigerian music scene, particularly among the younger generation. Joeboy commended Wizkid for breaking barriers and inspiring young artists to strive for greatness, irrespective of their age.

“One thing I really appreciate about Wiz is that he made young people believe that they can be young and be popping. I can be young and be one of the greatest, Joeboy said.

“Before Wiz, if any artiste pops it was probably like at a very later stage in life at that point. But after Wiz, young people were coming through. Young people started going hard. Big shoutout to Wizkid for that.”
