Contrary to the reports that Wizkid had dumped Sophie, a girl who featured in his debut video ‘Holla at Your Boy’, this new hip hop sensation was quick to debunk the rumours.
In a recent interview from Nigeriafilms, when asked whether it was true that he had dated Sophie; Wizkid said “Yes, we dated but that was a long time ago, before even I started music professionally.”
Asked, people said you jilted her because you shot into stardom? He stated: “No, That’s not true we just decided to move on. We stopped dating before I shot the video. I invited her for the video and she obliged to do it. If it’s true that I had jilted her, then she wouldn’t have accepted my offer in the first place.”
Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun a.k.a Wizkid is a talented singer, songwriter and performer. He kicked off his singing career at the early age of 11 when he recorded his first song with one of Nigeria’s celebrated music icons, OJB Jezreel. He went on to record a 7-track album, which he released in his church in Lagos, under the name of Lil’ Prinz; this was just a stint that earned him a remarkable deal of encouragement and recognition from family, his church and other artistes.
