Wiz Ofuasia (Also known as Wizboyy) is a Nigerian born artist, producer, multi-instrumentalist and audio engineer, from Umunede in Delta state.
His music journey started in his childhood days from the church where he developed his talent and served as music director for many years.
After graduating in Statistics from the University of Nigeria, Wiz’s music career kicked off professionally around 2005 in Enugu where he worked as an intern in different studios, produced for other artists and subsequently started recording his own songs.
He formed an Indie Record Label “Notyme Records” with his old friend Slim Brown. Other members who joined the team were Zoro,J’dess and Dj Ree.
Wiz made his first major breakthrough with “Screensaver”. Not long after that Came “Owu sa gi” which became a street anthem. The Classic “Infinity” was more than a song, it was a viral and infectious movement,a song that speaks to everyone and still rocks whenever it’s played. With that, there was no disputing the fact that Wiz is no “One Hit Wonder”.
Wizolingo,Fotojenik,Salambala,Lovinjitis,One plus one, etc. even brought more international attention to the Wiz brand. Mr Wizolingo (as he’s fondly called) is one of the Crossover Nigerian artists who command a very strong local/international fanbase and one of the most loved artists by the francophone countries. Worth mentioning are his numerous production and collaboration credits,ranging from his major hit songs to those with other artists like Flavour,Chidinma,Don Tom,Illbliss,Iceprince,Slim Brown,Monica Ogah,Zoro and many more.With four studio albums (New Face of My Story,Infinity,Testimoney and Changeover) to his name, Wiz has successfully carved a niche for himself and that sound he proudly calls “The Wizolingo Sound”.
