Learn from people who have been there and seen it all in order to walk in the same footstep of their success. Enjoy reading and don’t forget to leave your comment if you have anything you want to contribute.

1. Be Humble

Right from the days of ‘Holla at your boy’ till now, Wizkid is still one of the most humble artiste you will ever find in this country, looking at all the things he has accomplished and all the fame and fortune he has accrued for himself. Any other artistes in his shoes would fill like a god and would begin to act like a King among st his peers and colleagues. Wizkid still hangs out with his friends and fans anytime he is in the country and he respects everyone accordingly.

When he was still in EME he was the starboy in the team but he still flowed with everyone and made music with any artistes that wants him on their song. Wizkid has never been reported to be rude to anyone before and this trait is what has been bringing him favour and making people to like him the more.

If you are an upcoming artiste and you are already feeling proud and important with yourself because you have a few fans, then you need to rethink and re-strategize because people would only help you when you are humble and friendly.

2. Be Unique/Standout

Take a look at all the big artistes in Nigeria today from Adekunle Gold, Falz, Wizkid, 2Face Idibia, Olamide, Simi and Banky W you would realize that all these artistes have something unique about themselves both in their music and in their style. If you are an upcoming artistes learn from Wizkid because he is unique from other artistes. He recreated his own style of music from the already existing afrobeat and afrohiphop genre and owned his sound which other artistes now tries to copy.

There can never be another Wizkid so also there can never be another you. You are also unique, try and find that special thing about you that others don’t have and use it to your advantage. Let people be amazed when they listen to your music or wowed when they see your performance on stage. Small Doctor is a lovely example of a unique artiste who created his own niche and today he is making a lot of money from it. So be you and you alone. Be unique!!!!

3. Be Fashionable

Wizkid is still one of Nigeria’s most fashionable artiste and he will always be because he pays total attention to his dressing and always sets new trends. You can never catch Wizkid dressing shabbily, he is always on point in his dressing. Just like the popular saying “You are addressed from the way you are dressed”. People would come to you and want to associate with you when you are well dressed. Nobody wants to associate anyone who doesn’t look good. So as an artiste you can only attract favour and important people who can help your musical career when you are dressed well and look like a star even when you are not. Good attracts good, while bad attracts bad, it’s a normal theory which you can’t discard. So if you want to make it fast in the music industry you need to start dressing like a superstar that you want to become.

4. Be Controversial

These days controversies sells and it sells faster than any other marketing mechanism. You hardly find any top artistes who is not controversial, is it Wizkid?, Davido?, 2Face Idibia?, Olamide? or even Tiwa Savage?. This is just to show you that in other to be a big star in the industry you will need to have something that your fans can talk about.

Nigerians like gossips and they follow only the ones that can give them plenty of it. Wizkid is very controversial, from his baby mama story, to his bashing of his expensive cars and getting a replacement some days after to dating top female celebrities and some social media fights with top celebrities etc.

So as an upcoming artistes you need to put some spice into your brand for people to keep talking about you. Singing and performing is not everything but adding a few spice to your brand goes a long way to keep you relevant.

5. Be Social Media Savvy

If you want to be a celebrity then you need to start learning to put yourself and your activities in the public eyes. And the only way to do this is to make use of your social media platforms like facebook, twitter, instagram, youtube, google plus and other social media sites. Wizkid doesn’t joke with his social media that a day hardly goes by without him posting something on any of his social media accounts.

Try and be like Wizkid even with his busy schedule he still finds time to share a picture of himself with his fans just to always keep the connection with them. If he can do it how much you who is not as busy as he is. Being a star musician is not a one day job you need to work really hard. If you are an aspiring artistes and you don’t have at least two or three of these social media accounts; facebook, twitter, instagram, snapchat, youtube and soundcloud then you are not yet ready for the task of being a superstar.
