Ayo (stylized as Ayọ) is the second studio album by Nigerian recording artist Wizkid, released on September 17, 2014 by Starboy Entertainment and Empire Mates Entertainment. It is the follow-up to his first album, Superstar, which was released in 2011. The long awaited album was postponed twice due to difficulty in track selection.

As one of the executive producers of the album, Wizkid collaborated with record producers Sarz, Shizzi, Uhuru, Del B, Dr Frabz, Maleek Berry, Legendury Beatz and Spellz. The album features guest appearances from Femi Kuti, Seyi Shay, Yemi Sax, Akon, Banky W., Phyno, Tyga and Wale.
Upon its release, Ayo was met with mixed reviews from music critics who had a difference of opinion about the album. Some critics complimented the production, song arrangement and sound quality of the album, while others were disenchanted with the lyrical theme and absence of creativity.
