Pop star , Ayo Balogun , better known as Wizkid , was very passionate about the # EndSARS protests against all forms of police brutality and intimidation . Apparently , he knows where the shoe pinches as he has also being at the receiving end of police harassment. The singer stated his much on Capital Xtra ’ s The Norte Show .
He said , “ Police brutality is a serious situation back home in Nigeria. It has been 60 years of political injustice, nepotism , madness and corruption at the highest level. It is sad that my son is about to be 10 years old and Nigeria is still going through all these madness . If I didn ’ t speak up or use my voice , then I would be a coward. I will continue to speak about things that affect people in their daily lives. I had been a victim of police brutality before I became popular and I know it still goes on . That needs to end . We deserve good governance in Nigeria .”
Asked how he met Damian Marley whom he featured on his new album, Made in Lagos , the ‘ Starboy’ said , “ Damian Marley changed my life . He changed the way I live . After the session, it changed a lot for me . I recalled that I was in New York (United States of America ) promoting my last album, Sounds From the Other Side , and I was asked who I would love to a collaborate with and I said ‘ Damian Marley’ . Then I went back to my hotel . I kid you not , I was at the balcony of my suite with some of my friends when my cup fell to the balcony downstairs. Guess who picked up my cup? Damian Marley . We later went to a restaurant and talked . The session I had with him was spiritual . We spoke about everything. We spoke about kids , family and other important things . That was a very insightful session for me . He is a great guy with great energy . Making that song was a blessing .”
