The musician recently spoke with Shopsydoo, a prominent UK-based Afrobeats podcaster, about how becoming a father has changed him both personally and musically.

Being a parent, according to Wizkid, instilled an overflow of love in his heart, functioning as a motivational force that pulls him ahead. He highlighted that it is his great love that motivates his desire and determination.

Furthermore, Wizkid stated that music is more than just a job for him; it is a way of life. He passionately declared that it pervades all element of his life, that it is something he “sleeps,” “eats,” and “breathes.”

In his words, ‘’I sleep, breathe, eat, sh*t music. I’m always trying to elevate my craft from my sound, my videos, my productions, everything to a whole new level,’’ he said.

‘’It [being a father] has changed me a lot. I am grown; lots of love in my heart, fuels me to keep going, that is the drive, the only drive to keep me going.

“My family, my kids, I just feel blessed to be their father, take care of them, God put me in that position, it is the biggest blessing in the world, being able to recreate.’’
