International singer Ayo “Wizkid” Balogun has finally
opened up on the on the recently reported UNILAG
fraud case.
He also talked about his relationship with EME and
his new album, he also confirmed that he replaced
his damaged car with a new one, he further more
stated that him and his crew don’t collect cheap
What really happened between you and the
UNILAG students. You were accused of duping
By now, I think all is clear that there are some
people parading themselves as either Wizkid or his
managers. The unfortunate incident regarding the
UNILAG students is a case of mistaken identity
where people fell victim to some unscrupulous
elements who impersonated me or my
representatives. The same people, as we have come
to know, went as far as creating fake accounts in my
name to dupe people.
How did you come about the UNILAG palaver?
Basically, the police just called us to inform us of the
development. We can’t really give full details
because we were invited to come to the police
station and we went as law abiding citizens. When
we got there, we gave our own statement as well as
the students. But we really can’t say anything now
until the police have done their proper
investigations. But with the details on ground, what
we want you to know is that the so-called Wizkid the
students have been contacting is fake and an
impostor. It’s really not from me or from anybody
around me.
What was your first reaction when you heard
the news?
I felt so bad. I just went to my Twitter account and
tweeted the normal people to contact if you want to
book a show with Wizkid. Let’s be realistic.
Everybody saw my hustle and watched me grow.
When I dropped “Holla Your Boy”, I was much
younger and wasn’t charging up to N5 million for
shows. This is just playing out and it is simple.
So, how much do you charge now?
N5 million is okay for my show . But let’s just put
things right. It is so bad to my company’s name and
my name as well. That is why I decided to open up
on the issue.
There is this rumour that you are no longer
with EME?
I have just released an album in collaboration with
Wizkid and EME. “Starboy” is my new company,
EME is still there for me. “Starboy” is Wizkid’s new
record label and I have a couple of producers that
are working with me in the new company. Definitely,
we are working with a lot of people. Banky W and I,
started way back. Our dreams have always been to
build an empire, to help more people and give them
that platform to showcase their talents. And all these
dreams cannot happen only with one person.
So, we have to branch out and reach out to more
people. The industry is really big and there are more
than 5 million kids out there roaming about the
street and looking for a platform to showcase their
talents. We want to give them the platform to do
that. So, as you can see, everyone can contribute to
that. Now that “Starboy” has started, we thank God,
we are doing well. Anybody can start up something.
That is just what we are trying to do with EME.
Have you released the track list of your latest
Yes, I have done that. I featured Olamide, D’banj and
Banky W. The album is ready right now. But we are
just putting some finishing touches to it. We will be
having a listening party of the album very soon and
we are going to announce that as soon as it is ready.
We are planning for that. The album is coming out
very strong and I thank God that I have put all the
necessary things in place. I have a very strong belief
that the album is going to win awards.
There is this rumour making the rounds that
you have replaced your accidented Porsche car.
Is it true?
Yes, that is absolutely true. We thank God for that.
We thank Him for sparing my life. This is not the first
time I’ve had such an encounter. That doesn’t mean
I am a freak, but I needed to be mobile. I was moving
around with a taxi all through the duration of the
accident which is not proper.
