When asked recently who he believes is the face of the movement, Konvict Muzik creator and business entrepreneur Akon named Wizkid in an interview with well-known American media personality Sway Calloway on his program “Sway Universe.” He stated:
Wizkid is most likely the face of Afrobeats music. When we first saw him, we expected that he would be that way.
