love me too. That’s life” Continue…

Asked if he is terrible person, Wizkid said;
“Terrible? Everyone has opinion about people. But
when they say Wizkid is terrible, you need to ask
them, “Why is Wizkid a terrible person? What did he
do? For four years, I was making music with
Samklef, everyone knew his house. I was going up
and down, shouting, Samklef Nor Ni. That’s me, I
am just trying to be a good person. Whereas
everyone cannot like you and everyone cannot hate
you” he said.

Asked if fame has in anyway changed him, Wizkid
“No, fame has not changed Wizkid. The only thing
fame has changed in Wizkid is that I added some
accessories. I have got nice chains, watches, and
nice clothes. Asides that, I am still Wizkid. I no tall,
still same height”

He also reacted to his recent controversy with
singer Saeon,
“Oh really? She’s bitter about it. I didn’t see the
allegation but I gave her hit song. I no try? I did my
part. I was in the studio with her, gave her hit song.
I no try. That’s not even how much I charge for
collaboration, I charge N10 million. I collected N1.5
million from her because of love. I was busy, I didn’t
want to do it” he said.

Asked about the comment that he doesn’t charge
those he loves, Wizkid said;
“Yeah I don’t charge people I love. I said so but
when someone is on your neck everyday for a
collaboration and she offers you money, won’t you
collect it? If you fail to collect it, they start calling
you terrible person. I am just trying to be a good

On his fashion sense, Wizkid said;
“Fresh! Am I not looking fresh? I have always loved
chains a lot. For me, I also see chains as
investment because they are gold and diamond.
You can always sell anything gold and diamond. It
is like an investment for me”.

On why he loves to flaunt his accessories on social
media, Wizkid said;
“You know now. I didn’t have accessories when I
started my career. Did you see me wearing bling-
bling when I did Hola at your boi? No! I hustled to
get money to buy them and there is no crime if I
show it or flaunt it to my fans because they gave
me money to buy them” he said.

On where he invests his money, Wizkid said;
“I will say property but most importantly Jewelry.
Do you know how much I can sell this chain on my
neck when I get broke, God forbid? It’s money and
to me it’s investment. I don’t spend money on
foolish things. I spend moderately. Besides I am a
grown man. I have problems too. I have a child I am
taking care of. I have responsibilities, believe it or
not” he said

Asked if he is expecting another child, Wizkid said;
“Expecting wetin? Did I tell you I am expecting a
child? Yes I didn’t tell you guys when I was
expecting my first child because people wanted to
kill me but Honestly, nothing like that I am not
expecting any child now”

Asked if he is getting married anytime soon, Wizkid
hissed and said “Wedding? No!”
