The 32-year-old Grammy winner, who recently welcomed his fourth child, is set to release his latest musical project, ‘More Love, Less Ego’.
Speaking on the album, Wizkid noted that his biggest concern was not letting fame go to his head. “Everyone fights with their ego and that’s where I’m at. I always try to get rid of my ego, like everyone else.
Affectionately known as Starboy, the entertainer has revealed that if he hadn’t gotten into music, he would have turned to a life of crime as his parents wanted him to be a lawyer or a doctor.
“Music was more than a hobby to me, more than a talent. It was my escape. I was in the hood. It was either music or turned into a crime. That’s why I don’t mess with music.
“My parents wanted me to be a lawyer or a doctor. It was a very difficult conversation to have when I said I wanted to do music. I just had to prove [myself] for them.”
