"When I had my first child, I was 21. I’ll never forget. I felt so lost, ’cause I wasn’t sure I was ready to be a father at that point. I was scared I wasn’t going to be a good father to my kids ’cause I [was] still a baby. I was so confused."

After he had his first son, Wizkid said he started seeing his life differently, adding that he realised he was now responsible for another human being. According to him, his first child changed his life, which is why he named him Boluwatife: “As God wishes.”

On his sons' love for music, Wizkid said his first Bolu likes rap music a lot. His last son Zion also likes listening to music and he hums a lot like he does. The singer said he's not sure what he's second son Ayo wants to do yet, however, he would support whatever career his sons' eventually embrace.
