Wizkid is in a league of his own.

At just 26, the Nigerian musician has achieved what many can only dream of. Not only is he a mega superstar, but he's also got several awards to prove that he's the real deal. His music is not only a big deal in Africa, but also in the rest of the world.

Can we talk about his massive collaborations? Last month Wiz revealed that he made music with Alicia Keys and Sean Paul.

The announcement came just after Wiz killed his performance at the One Africa Music Fest in New York's Barclays Center. Wiz has performed at several other international gigs throughout his career.

Who can forget that massive feature on Drake's "Views" album? Oh, and Drake jumped on the remix of Wizkid's smash hit "Ojuelegba".

Also, there is his relationship with Chris Brown. According to a popular Nigerian site, their bromance started in 2012 when Breezy was in Nigeria for a performance, alongside Wiz. The Starboy also reportedly taught the American musician some Naija dance moves. And, as they say, the rest is history!

These two even FaceTime each other...

They perform together... Remember that time they rocked the stage in Durban? Yeah, that was fun.

Did we mention that rapper and producer Swizz Beatz is also a big fan?

In an interview with V-Entertainment, international superstar DJ Black Coffee mentioned that he'd like to work with Wiz some day.

"I've been talking to Wiz... I've been talking to Wizkid, it's just a matter of finding time. Most of the time he's in LA, so it's just a matter of finding time. I've always wanted to do some work with him," Black Coffee said in the interview.

We're certain that we're still going to see more magic from Wizkid.
