Multiple award-winning Nigerian superstar singer, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, sparked discussions as he talked about his desire for acting in movies.
In an exclusive chat with BBC correspondents, Wizkid revealed he has no interest being part of Hollywood but expressed his love and affection for the Nollywood movie industry.
The interviewer had asked, “If you weren’t an artist, what would you be doing? You’re quite a fashion guy.”
In response, Wizkid said, “Probably designing clothes, sneakers, just creating cool stuff.”
Expanding on this, he said, “I’ve never really envisioned myself doing anything other than music. It’s hard to imagine me pursuing anything else, but what I would love to explore someday is definitely fashion and movies.”
