All of us know how the story ended…

Banky W signed Wizkid to his record label.

Wizkid became famous after making hits after hits.

He left Banky W to stand on his own two feet and he has since grown even bigger.

Today, he is one of Africa’s biggest music exports. He is making music with Beyonce and Drake, signing sponsorship deals Diddy and hanging out with Nicki Minaj.

Though we know there is still more to come in the Wizkid legendary story, very few know it all begun with this tweet:

Almost 10 years ago, Wizkid, then a little known upcoming musician with big dreams sent a tweet to Banky W.

Banky W was then one of the top of the very top of Nigerian and African music.

“Hey Mr Banky,” Wizkid started his 2010 tweet.

“My name is Wizkid and i’m up and coming in the music industry and i need your help mehn,” he added.

Since that tweet, the great Wizkid success story unfolded.

Now… if this doesn’t win the 10 Years Challenge, what will?
