In a recent update on his bio on the photo and video sharing app, Wizkid who is the most decorated Nigerian artist ever and one of the most revolutionary Afro-pop artists of the modern era changed his name to Big Wiz.

Since the new name now has “Big” replaced with “Kid”, it’s suggested that the change might be as a result of the constant advice from his fans to change his name from “Wizkid”, since he has evolved from the young Wiz who made his debut in the Nigerian music industry in 2009.
