Wizkid’s star power continues to rise globally. In fact, this 2012 has been incredible for him with his many accolades, collaborations, endorsement deals and important radio and television appearances. However, as he climbs up the music chain, he is bound to severe ties with some of the people that were a part of his success, I guess? The latest news as reported by Hip Hip World Magazine is that Wizkid has severed ties with his long time manager Osagie Osarenkhue. Osarenkhue was responsible for introducing Wizkid to Banky W who subsequently signed the young talent to EME.
