A potential record deal between Wizkid and a U.S. label has been a recurring news in the grapevine for the past few weeks, and now, there are strong indications that it might soon come to fruition.


The Nigerian singer whose real name is Ayodele Balogun is set to sign a deal with Sony/RCA, according to Ovie Ofugara, editor at NotJustOk, a Nigerian music website.

In a series of tweets, Ofugara affirms that the deal is “mind blowing” and is as good as done.

He said: “All things being equal, Wizkid will put pen to paper on a mega deal with Sony/RCA tomorrow (Tuesday). Everything is agreed in principle.


“The figures being mentioned in the Wizkid Sony/RCA deal are mind-blowing”, he added.

“The deal places Wizkid and Davido on the same platform, which makes things very interesting. (Ayo Jay signed with RCA directly).

“Universal made a strong play for Wizkid (a top exec travelled to London for talks months back), but Sony offered a much better package.”


If the deal becomes reality, Wizkid will join Davido, fellow artiste, on the roster of the American record label.

Davido signed a global record deal with Sony Music Enertainment in January 2016. The deal is believed to worth an estimated $1m.
