In a 2012 radio interview with Tim Westwood, Wizkid confirmed that Muniru Olatunji Balogun, his father married three wives.
His mum, a formidable cornerstone of strength, lent unwavering backing to her son’s meteoric rise in the industry. Her steadfast support was a familiar sight on the periphery of concerts and events.
Her presence at Wizkid’s performances wasn’t just that of a mother; it embodied an emblem of unyielding allegiance to her son’s career.
