International music sensation, Wizkid, has revealed that becoming a father at the age of 21 changed his life.
It could be recalled that in 2011, Wizkid became a father when he welcomed his first child, Boluwatife, with his first baby mama, Shola Ogudu.
The Grammy Award-winner stated he wasn’t sure he was ready to be a father in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, where he discussed his successful music career and collaboration with Jamaican musician Damian Marley on the smash single ‘Blessed.’

In his words,
“Yeah. Fatherhood changed me, man. 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.
I remember after I had my child, it just changed everything, man. I started seeing my life different. I literally started putting my business together after I had my kid. It just made me [think], “Oh, wow. Another life is here that I have to care for. That’s my responsibility.” So he really changed my life, man, and I called him Boluwatife: “As God wishes.” That was a big blessing to my life. Fatherhood changed me forever.”
