It has been suggested that Akon is set to collaborate with Whiz Kid on a remix of his single ‘Don’t Dull’. It is believed that Akon took a shining to the young artist after seeing him perform in the UK and after Whiz Kid had finished his set, Akon approached him about a collaboration.
Whiz Kid, whose real name is Ayodeji Balogun, was overjoyed at the prospect and duly accepted the offer. Whiz Kid is currently managed by Banky W’s EME entertainment but he could not pass up the chance to work with Konvict music CEO Akon.
Whiz Kid released his debut album ‘My Time’ back in June of this year and it appears that his catchy lyrics have sat well with Akon. It is a big step for Whiz Kid as many were suggesting that he would only have a fleeting success. However, this collaboration could set him up for a long and successful career.
