Nigerian TV and Radio presenter, Toke Makinwa has spoken on the struggles and hustle of superstar singer, Ayodeji ”Wizkid” Balogun before becoming who he is today.
She said that when Wiz was up-and-coming, he used to hangout in Rhythm FM studio and ran errands such as going to buy Amala for the studio Disc Jockeys and carrying speakers.
Toke made this known in a recent chat with Chude Jideonwo, while querying young people of today who just want to succeed without putting in the work.
She said; “You don’t know the years Wizkid put in to becoming who he is today. Young newbies try music for a year or two and are frustrated because it is not working…dude, when I tell people…I was at Rhythm and Wizkid used to carry speakers and he will be sent by DJs to buy Amala and he will do it, he was the studio rat, just help me play my song he will say.
People like at him now and say he is arrogant not knowing the work he had put into this journey. It is the same way people can look at me now and say i got it all easy but if you have been following my career, and seeing the hardwork I put in, you should ask me what i am doing with my life if by now i am not enjoying all i am enjoying now from my hardwork.”
