…’count me out for now’ – Wizkid
Awww, nothing like young love! Such a cute photo of Wizkid & his boo thang Tania Omotayo snuggled up in London. This was a few days after his birthday when she surprised him with champagne, strawberries & roses for his 23rd birthday in London.
WIzkid & Tania have been dating for over six months, and judging from the Instagram posts these two are crazy in love with each other, although it doesn’t look like Wizzy is ready to get married anytime soon. Shortly after news broke of Peter Okoye’s surprise Range Rover proposal to long term girlfriend Lola Omotayo’s, fans started to inundate the star boy with question about when he was going to get married, to which Wizzy replied ‘Another 10 yrs bro’.
Yikes! Tania is going to wait a while…
