The BRIT Billion Award celebrates Wizkid’s outstanding achievement as a recording artiste in surpassing the landmark of one billion career streams in the UK – as calculated by the Official Charts Company.

Wizkid was able to achieve the feat — courtesy of hits like ‘Essence,’ ‘Brown Skin Girl,’ and ‘Made in Lagos’ album.

His performance at the Tottenham Stadium also makes him the first African artiste to headline a concert at “London’s largest stadium”.


Wizkid has done impressively well for himself in the global music space.

He gained global prominence following his collaboration with Drake on the hit single ‘One Dance’ in 2016.

With a huge fanbase, several awards and honorary mentions, Wizkid is among the leading names in African music.

The music star recently teased a new album. He also headlined the Glastonbury Festival in the UK.
