Nigerian singer, Ayo Balogun, better known as Wizkid, has finally dived into polic tics as the 2023 general elections draws closer.
Speaking in a recent interview with The Guardian, the singer said: “I’m about to go cr@zy on their asses this election. All these old men are going out of power this time. They need to go to an old people’s home and chill out.”
Adding that, “There’s nothing to celebrate [in Nigeria] except that [Nigerians] are amazing people in music, sports, comedy – entertainment in general. I’m proud of young Nigerians doing things around the world in tech. I have amazing friends, doing amazing things. That’s it, though. There’s nothing else.
But I feel hopeful there’ll be change. How soon? I’m not sure. But a lot has changed from growing up to now. There was a time when you could never speak to the president or anyone in government like that. But now you have a voice.”
