Grammy Award winner and father of three, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun professionally known as Wizkid in a conversation with a US magazine, RollingStone talked about the responsibility of fatherhood and his sons’ love for music.
Wizkid while talking about how fatherhood changed him stated that he was 21 when he had his first child Boluwatife. According to him, the experience scared him.
He said; “When I had my first child, I was 21. I’ll never forget. I felt so lost; ’cause I wasn’t sure I was ready to be a father at that point. I was scared I wasn’t going to be a good father to my kids ’cause I [was] still a baby. I was so confused.”
After he had his first son, Wizkid said he started seeing his life differently, adding that he realised he was now responsible for another human being.
According to him, his first child changed his life, which is why he named him Boluwatife: “As God wishes.”
On his sons’ love for music, Wizkid said his first Bolu likes rap music a lot. His last son Zion also likes listening to music and he hums a lot like he does. The “Ginger” crooner said he’s not sure what his second son Ayo wants to do yet, however, he would support whatever career his sons eventually embrace.
