In a recent dinner out with his friends, Nigerian singer and songwriter Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, known professionally as Wizkid, reportedly spent almost Sh1m for dinner at OX Restaurant in Victoria Island Lagos, Nigeria. According to a member of his entourage who shared the dinner's payment receipt, Wizkid spent N3.6m (950K).
Wizkid is believed to be in a celebratory mood recently after his album release in Lagos. The move comes when he publicly acknowledged that he first sees himself as a father -despite the spending. In a recent interview, Wizkid admitted that he is a father first before anything else.
"Fatherhood means everything to me. Before, I used to see myself as Wizkid the musician, but after I had my kids, I now see myself as a father before everything else; that is who I am. I would put everything before my kids; I would stop the world if I could for my kids. That is the kind of father that I am. They mean everything to me, my heart and soul," he said.
"The most important thing to me is family; I am a big, big family guy. My son is my best friend; he calls me every day and we have the craziest conversations. He is nine years old now. It is very important for me to keep the family; that is one thing that my parents instilled in me to understand that there is nothing more important to me," he added.
