Ayodeji Balogun, the world-famous Nigerian Grammy award-winning singer, who is popularly known as Wizkid, has talked about why he rarely makes political comments in his music and interviews.

According to him, the Nigerian masses don’t care about politics, saying they only care about how to make ends meet.

Wizkid made the assertion in a recent interview with Evening Standard UK.

He said, “I don’t like to speak about politicians in Nigeria. People in the streets care about themselves and what they are going to eat. They don’t give a f*ck about nothing else.”

The ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner also disclosed his ambition as a leader of the new generation of Nigerian musicians.

He said he wouldn’t judge “previous generations”, stressing that his goal is “to steer the new generation forward.”

The 30-year-old said he desires for the new crop of afrobeats artists to make global exploits and be united.
