Fatherhood means more to me than music —Wizkid


‘Joro’ crooner Ayo Balogun better known in music circles as Wizkid has stated that fatherhood means so much to him than music.

The Grammy Award-winning musician made the revelation on Saturday in a video shared on his YouTube channel while celebrating the tenth anniversary of his debut album, ‘Superstar’.

In the video, Wizkid noted that his son who is like his best friend calls him every day and they usually have the craziest of conversations.

He said; “My son is like my best friend. He calls me every day and we have the craziest conversations. He is nine. It is very important for me to keep family together. That is one thing my parents always instilled into us— to understand that there is nothing more important than family. Fatherhood means everything to me. Before I used to see myself as a musician, but now, I see myself as a father. I am a father before anything else.”

He also added that as a child growing up, he usually went to the mosque with his father, while he followed his mother to church.

Wizkid said, “Growing up in a very spiritual home in Lagos really opened my mind. My dad is a Muslim, while my mum is a Christian. I used to go to the mosque with my dad and go to the church with my mother. That really opened my mind to know that the biggest religion in life is love. Love is the biggest religion I follow. The most important thing to me is family,” he concluded.
