Last night, MTV MAMAs ‘Artiste of the Year’ Wizkid took to twitter to announce that his 16-month relationship with telco giant, GLO had ended.
When Wizkid signed the deal worth around N120m in June 2015, it reportedly was the biggest endorsement deal in Africa at the time.
Officially no longer with GLO, it was nice working with the amazing people at the company, wish the company the best in the future. Love ??

In an exclusive chat with Thenetng, Wizkid’s manager Sunday Are reacted to reports that he was dumped because he requested for more money, saying, ‘No there’s nothing like that, they still remain a big family, I wish you know how cool the relationship between them is. There’s no issue at all’.
Asked if Wizkid got a better offer from a competing brand, he said, ‘no, no, no there’s nothing like that. Wizkid has a good relationship with GLO’.
So we probed further to know what led to them going their separate ways, ‘the reason is best known to the company and the artiste. It’s not a big deal at all and I’m sure you know how the country is, there’s recession everywhere but trust me it’s not an issue‘ he said.
