A Nigerian doctor identified as Dr Penking publicly criticizes the Afrobeat music star, Wizkid over his demeanor at his mother’s burial ceremony.

The celebrated artist, who had been wearing a sad expression for some days prior to the event, was observed to be cheerful during his mother’s final burial on Friday.

A video that circulated online showed Wizkid sitting with Oba Elegushi, sharing laughter and jokes.

Expressing clear disapproval of his joyful demeanour, Dr. Penking in a post via X platform raised the question of why someone who had recently lost their mother would be in a jovial mood at her funeral. He further pondered if there was undisclosed information about her passing.
