Wizkid, Nigerian Afrobeats artist, has credited his success in music to his refusal to take no for an answer
When he first started out in the Nigerian music industry as a fresh talent, the musician revealed that he was still hungry for success, and this has helped him form his career toward achieving his career goals.
Wizkid revealed this during an Instagram Live session with Tony Elumelu Foundation on March 3, where he also discussed how he launched his Starboy Entertainment record label with minimal resources.
Some of Wizkid’s words were :
“I would say it’s never taking no for an answer. When l started, I was the youngest in music… everywhere l go to then, l was pretty much the youngest. But I just didn’t take no for an answer, and that has really helped in shaping me into the man that I’m today. When I think about it, I simply go for it
I started that business (Starboy Entertainment) with my friends. We literally started it in my living room. We didn’t even have much. I can’t remember what we had altogether then. We decided to do a photoshoot the same day after we spoke about it and went for it because we were so determined,”
