The singer during the interview further noted that he is loved by Nigerians adding that he tries to reciprocate the love by claiming he does a lot for Nigerians back home.

“Everywhere they go, they will tell you. Nigerians love me, and I love them too much. I will do anything for my Nigerian people man.

He added:

“Big shout to my Naija people. I love them too much. That’s why I do a lot back home. Sometimes I do free shows. I just pull up and say ‘Hey, Wizkid, free show.’

Sometimes I charge like a dollar for a show, sometimes I take like N1000, sometimes when I do shows at the Fela shrine, back with Femi (Kuti) and all that.”
