Nigerian music sensation, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, widely known as Wizkid, has dropped hints to his fans about the possibility of taking a substantial 4 to 5-year hiatus from the music scene. During this break, he’s considering exploring alternative career options, including football, golf, or delving into the world of FIFA video games.
The genesis of this revelation occurred on Sunday, November 6, when a fan demanded new music from the star, citing a prolonged period since his last release.
Initially, Wizkid responded with laughter and indicated that he was currently on a holiday.
However, Wizkid has since posted additional statements on his Instagram page, suggesting that he might indeed embark on a 4 to 5-year sabbatical to explore new career prospects.
Meanwhile, fans of the singer have offered mixed reactions to his statements, some of which are captured below.
@mr_tobby01: “I swear if this guy doesn’t sing for 18 months, nobody will remember him, his career will suffer even more than Brymo’s.”
@topensyy: “He needed the clout; people have forgotten about him.”
