In a documentary shared on his YouTube channel, Wizkid who is celebrating the tenth anniversary of his debut album, ‘Superstar’, said his first son Baluwatife is like his best friend.

In his words; “My son is like my best friend. He calls me every day and we have the craziest conversations. He is nine. It is very important for me to keep my family together. That is one thing my parents always instilled into us to understand that there is nothing more important than family. Fatherhood means everything to me. Before I used to see myself as a musician, but now, I see myself as a father. I am a father before anything else.”

“Growing up in a very spiritual home in Lagos really opened my mind. My dad is a Muslim, while my mum is a Christian. I used to go to the mosque with my dad and go to the church with my mother. That really opened my mind to know that the biggest religion in life is love. Love is the biggest religion I follow. The most important thing to me is family”, he said.
