“When I would marry, and why I don’t react to controversies” – Wizkid reveals

Multiple award winning singer, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun popularly known as Wizkid, in a new and detailed interview has revealed when he would marry and why he doesn’t react to controversies around him.

In an exclusive media chat with ThisDay Newspaper, self-acclaimed star boy talked family, love and music.

Made in Lagos’ has topped charts and dominated the airwaves globally, how does this make you feel – being #1 again?

“It’s a you know and I’m just thankful that I have amazing fans that listen to music. I feel really blessed, like that’s the word – “blessed” there’s no other way to describe it.”

The album is themed majorly on love and family values – how have these affected the man that Wizkid is today?

“Family is everything to me. That’s what influences me and keeps me grounded, especially my sons. They are my purpose in life. It was important for me to put that into the music. I always want to share that love and good vibe because that’s simply what keeps me going in life.”

When asked which track on the MIL album is his favourite, Wizkid said; “It changes every minute which makes it difficult for me to pick. All the music is very personal to me. Every record means something, so I can’t really pick one over the other. All them are my favourites for various reasons.”

Talking about when he would likely drop a new album, he said: “Yes 100% it’s going to drop when it’s ready. But you see that’s the almighty question – when is it gonna be ready? (Laughs). I record every day you know, so I got a lot of music and I’m ready to give my fans more music. It’ll definitely drop once it’s ready.”

Balancing out your roles as family man, hit maker and man of the people sure doesn’t seem like an easy feat. How have you managed to pull through?

“I believe everything just falls in place when you’re being your true self. I’m a big family man, I love music and I love making people happy. I love to see my close ones happy around me so what I do is just try my best to simply stay grounded. I try not to get caught up. I just try as much as possible to be a normal individual, because that’s who we all are at the end of the day. That outlook is what helps to maintain balance in my life. My family comes first, always. Then my music, and my fans come right after that.”

You always seem unfazed managing controversies. How easy is it to stay quiet and not explain yourself or tell your side of the story?

“It’s very easy. Only a stupid man will go around trying to prove a point to the world and even at that, you’ll find that you can’t please everyone, that you cannot live of people’s opinions. I think once you understand yourself and your true essence, nothing will faze you, people’s opinions won’t faze you. I’m just more of a private person, and I handle situations in that manner.”

When asked what his plans for Valentine are, Wizkid said “It’s family o, I will be with my family. Valentine is about showing love, and not just to family but everyone around. So, I’ll be busy spreading love and positive vibes to the people like always.”

Asked about when he would marry, Wizkid simply laughed and replied, “Until then o… dem go wait!”
