Grammy award winner and Nigerian superstar Wizkid has said that at this point in his life, he is living for his sons, wife, family, associates, and fans.
Wizkid revealed this during a recent interview with Apple Music’s Dotty at The Roundhouse in London. During the interview, the father of four says his new album, ‘More Love, Less Ego,’ defines his current life stage.
“It’s part of my life, man. It’s like a progression, you know? The last one was made in Lagos; that’s where I’m from.
“You already know where I’m from though, and that one’s just to show you where, what the world needs actually, at this time, right now at this moment, is a whole lotta love.
“I have a lotta love (laughs). I have four kids, man. When my son kisses me at night, like, “Goodnight,” or, like, you know, when he’s going to school or, like, you know, that’s, that fills my heart. You can’t even buy that type of love, you know? That’s all that matters,” he says.
The singer went ahead, “Like, this is pretty much all I live for. My kids’ happiness, me taking care of people close to me, you know, my friends, like, s- spreading a lotta love, man, just doing what I do best by making amazing music.
“That is, like, the most important thing to me in my life. Absolutely More Love, Less Ego, man. Everyone needs it, especially right now.
“And this war in Ukraine, man, 2022, right before our eyes. They are bombing people right now in Africa. It’s crazy. This is the album that helps too.”
“I would just be lying if I said I don’t, but absolutely, yeah, man. You know, I’m trying as much as possible to be, to take this substance to the highest of the highest heights.
“I wanna show the kids from back home, there’s nothing you can’t do, right? If I can do it from Surulere, trust me, anybody can actually do it.”
