Reactions as Wizkid distributes N100m in Surulere, Makoko


Renowned Nigerian artist Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, fulfilled his pledge to donate 100 million naira for Christmas in the Surulere and Makoko areas of Lagos.

Wizkid had previously announced his intention to contribute a sum of 100 million naira to children in various regions of the country for Christmas.

He mentioned that the generous donation was in honor of his late mother, Mrs. Juliana Morayo Balogun, who passed away on August 18th, 2023, in London.

In a video circulating on social media, the singer is seen shirtless area accompanied by his security personnel, where he generously spayed huge cash to the delight of the gathered crowd.

@SenseUponSense also quipped “As much as I like Wizkid, this one is rubbish. Can’t you just go there give, do something tangible and leave.. than throwing money into the air to cause damages & injuries. Something you can’t do in Ikoyi or VI, not to talk to outside the country.”

@Joji_D_Oracle posted, “I don’t do fc shit or whatever, but if this was Davido doing this after his mother’s death, you all psychos will say he used his mother for money ritual. Reverse Truth🦅🇬🇧👑”
