Nigerian singer, Ayo Balogun, also known as Wizkid, shocked his fans on Monday as he changed his Instagram name from Wizkid to Big Wiz.
Without a formal announcement, the artiste has hinted on how he would rather be addressed by fans.
His fans had in the past suggested that he remove the suffix ‘-kid’ from his name, based on his age and achievements in the Nigerian music industry over the past decade.
However, his Twitter page, as of the time of this report, had still retained the name “Wizkid”, despite being active.
Meanwhile, the singer is not the first Nigerian musician to change names, either formally or informally.
