According to the Ayodeji Balogun better known as Wizkid reveals that he would have been a hooligan on the streets of Lagos if music had not worked.
Speaking during an interview with the English model, Naomi Campbell, the 30-year-old revealed that he feels God used music to change his life knowing that he wasn’t born with a silver spoon.
Here is what Wizkid said during the interview session;
“If I wasn’t blessed to be doing music I would have probably been on the streets.
“I am not from a rich family and I wasn’t raised with a silver spoon so I feel I was blessed so I can be a blessing to my family and to those around me.
“I believe if I wasn’t making music I would have been on the streets hustling like every other kid.
”God blessed me with music and it’s safe to say music changed my life.
It also changed the lives of those I love and care about,” he said.
In 2016, Wizkid achieved international recognition following his collaboration with Drake on the global hit, “One Dance”. Indeed, the song reached number one in 15 countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
In March 2017, Billboard magazine reported that Wizkid signed a multi-album deal with RCA Records. Further, his third studio album – Sounds from the Other Side – was released by RCA Records.
Meanwhile, it served as his major-label debut and was primarily a Caribbean-influenced record. The album was supported by huge singles: “Daddy Yo”, “Sweet Love”, “Come Closer” featuring Drake, among others.
