To say Wizkid is a kid might be an understatement, but looking at his age, you begin to wonder why some so called celebs don’t learn from the mistakes of those before them, who had all the fame and fortunes in their hands but messed up with it.
At 23, Wizkid is not too young to father a child, which he has reportedly and allegedly done. To say he’s suffering from a half baked-education might not be an excuse because Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and others didn’t finish their educations but are world players today.
If I am not mistaken, Segun Obe didn’t finish from school but he’s doing well for himself. 2Face, who is the king of new generation artistes, didn’t finish from school, he is not only responsible but humble.
Pride they say, comes before fall. For an artiste to call a fan ‘broke’ is uncalled for. One of the reasons I personally don’t regard celebs is because like I always say, they are not better than a cleaner but only had a camera advantage on others.
Fans put food in their tables and cater for them. I hope Wizkid has not forgot how he used to clean and run errands for some artistes at OJB Jezreel’s studio in Surulere. How Banky W helped him to become what he is today, how this same fans spent their hard-earned money to buy his CDs, pay for VIP tickets just to hear him sing for less than 30mins when they can comfortably do that by buying his N50 CD at Alaba International Market. Lagos.
If such fan who has paid N1million for a table to just hear him sing his ‘jargons’ is now being called broke and poor, then this is likely to be the beginning of the end of Wizkid.
Maybe he should remember that no one reigns forever. Many years ago, Majek Fashek used to be the star, but today, where is he? This is not a sort of mockery of the veteran singer but our new stars should learn from mistakes of others to shape their lives. I hope tomorrow won’t come and someone brings sentiment and sympathy to get Nigerians to help Wizkid, God forbid. But the fact is, whatever you sow, you shall reap.
Nobody ever knew OJB Jezreel will cry out to Nigerians for help because he made money doing what he loved doing best some years ago. If he had called a fan back then ‘broke’, I wonder if anyone would help him today.
Wizkid, you don’t need to take my advice, but remember that ‘pride comes before fall.’
