Nigerian professional footballer, Alexander Chuka Iwobi has recalled how Afrobeats singer, Ayodeji Balogun better known as Wizkid helped him when he was not famous.
In an interview with Oma Sports TV, Alex who plays the position of a midfielder characterized Wizkid as a kind and down-to-earth person.
Iwobi revealed that Wizkid was kind to him and treated him respectfully, even before he knew who he was.
He added that Wizkid’s concert at Tottenham Stadium earlier this year was one of the best Nigerian concerts he has ever attended.
In his words …
“Wizkid’s show at Tottenham stadium is my favorite Nigerian show, I really enjoyed myself. I didn’t get to meet him that day. But I’ve met him previous times and he’s a very nice and very humble guy.
“The first time I met him, he showed me love when he first met me even though he didn’t know who I was at the time. I’ve seen him in stores and even in the club as well, and he has always showed me so much love. He is someone that I really respect.”
