Nigeria's Wizkid on his first time on stage

His name is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun. But in nightclubs, on radio stations and music channels across Africa, he is known as Wizkid.

The 22-year-old singer-songwriter has quickly become one of Nigeria's hottest musicians.

Wizkid started performing at the age of 11.

Radio 1Xtra's Dj Edu travelled to Lagos and asked him what it was like the first time he went on stage.
