Wizkid is a great man who has achieved a lot at a very young age. Thanks to his stars.

I hope he motivates every guy and girl out there to work really hard and believe that one day, 'hustle go pay'

Never stop believing. Always thank Jah for life.

Check out few of his word;

"I'm thankful because all the hard work and sacrifices were worth it in the end".

"Mistake is a single page of life but relation is a complete book".

"Don't make so many promises when you can't even keep one".
