Nigerian Music Star, Wizkid opened up on how Music changed his life and that of his family.
In the latest interview with Naomi Campbell on the 15th of December 2020, Wizkid was asked why he was always so generous to the guys in public spaces whenever they go out.
Naomi revealed that whenever Wizkid goes out, he usually does it with his pocket filled with money and makes sure he gives every cent away.
“I love doing that because If I wasn’t a musician, I would probably be on the street because I’m not from a rich home, my parent is not wealthy, I changed the life of my family through music. I was blessed, God used me as a blessing to my family If I wasn’t doing music, I would be like every normal kid on the street.”
When Noami asked if Music saved his life, he replied
“Sure, it definitely saved and changed my life.”
On his choice of collaborations with young artists, Wizkid revealed that he does so because he understands what it’s like to be in that phase and collaborates with them because he understands what that will mean to their career as young artists.
“I started when I was young, so I was like so young when I started, and I knew the amounts of Nos I got before getting to where I’m at, so now that I’m here, every kid that I see, it’s like I see you in me and I’m your biggest fan, I support you and I want you to be successful… because I know how hard it to, especially here, to make music.
It’s harder to make music in Nigeria in every way down to even getting the right producer and getting your songs played.”
On if he ever asked people to play his songs on the radio, Wizkid said;
“I’ll never do it. I’ve never done it and that has always been my thing. Like I’ll never pay anyone to play my record, but people do it and I don’t blame them because they’re so many records and you have to pay to get yours played.”
