In a recent revelation, popular Nigerian singer, Ayodeji Balogun, better known as Wizkid, has shared his preference for a quieter lifestyle, choosing to spend time indoors with his child over partying and hanging out. This shift in lifestyle, according to Wizkid, is a result of personal growth and maturity, not influenced by public perception.
Wizkid’s introspective nature is not only reflected in his personal life but also in his music. The Lagos-born singer recently announced his fifth studio album, “More Love, Less Ego,” marking a new phase in his career. The album’s title seems to reflect Wizkid’s current state of mind, focusing on love and personal connections over superficial fame and ego.
Wizkid’s influence extends beyond his music; he is paving the way for other African artists on a global scale. His collaborations with emerging talents like Tems, Burna Boy, and Tay Iwar on his previous album “Made in Lagos” have been instrumental in spotlighting African music on the international stage.
However, Wizkid’s journey is not without its challenges. His highly anticipated “More Love, Less Ego” tour has been postponed to Fall 2023, a decision announced via social media. Despite this setback, Wizkid continues to make waves, becoming only the second Nigerian artist to headline and sell out the famed Madison Square Garden in New York.
Wizkid’s evolution from a party-loving artist to a more introspective and mature individual is a testament to his growth, both personally and professionally. His decision to prioritize family over fame, coupled with his continued success in the music industry, paints a picture of an artist who is not afraid to evolve and chart his own course.
