Now we call him Starboy but it wasn't all fancy rides and exotic girls for Nigeria's hottest music export at the moment, Wizkid, during his early venture into music business.
Wizkid Remembers When He Was Nobody And Thank God [VIDEO]
The singer actually slugged it out in a tiny song recording studio, hoping for a big break that can catapult him into stardom.
He is now in that era, a time when he can easily afford to 'ignore' a bold handshake from one of his admirers.
The Ojuelegba hitmaker might be one of the biggest African artistes at the moment, but it wasn't all sparkles for him.
Wizkid used to be just an upcoming artiste who did his song recording in the pad of DJ Stramborella.
The latter and the 'Daddy yo' songster took their fans on a trip down memory lane in a recent Instagram video post.
Both reminisced about the singer's early start into music between laughters at an event in Eko Hotels, clearly full of thanks for the countless opportunities that lay in wait for him.
It has been a big year for Wizkid who won a number of awards in the year 2016.
