Videos showing the designated location for well-wishers to offer their condolences have surfaced, and all indications point to a serious preparation for Mrs. Jane Balogun’s funeral. A brief video that went viral showed images of the mother of the Nigerian Star Boy, as well as vivid flowers, softly flickering candles, and a condolence book that had been ceremoniously opened in her honor.

Wizkid’s mother died on Friday, August 18, 2023, and the news devastated many of the singer’s followers. In the thick of it all, the Singer has been absent from the social media landscape since his mother’s death. Mrs. Jane Balogun was profoundly rooted in the Pentecostal Christian faith, thus it comes to reason that her death rites would be church-centric, despite Wizkid’s father’s Muslim faith.
Davido, the Afrobeats Superstar, delivered a special condolence message to Wizkid while on stage at the recent AfroNation Festival. The DMW boss expressed condolences and support to Wizkid following the death of his mother, while also praising the artist and stating that his legacy in the Nigerian music business would remain forever.
Burna Boy also took a break from his performance at Afro Nation to express his sorrow. Not content with that, he also stated that he cannot contemplate losing his own mother and that it would be the end of him.
