The star who has spoken out about his perspective on his music-making process, his feelings for his music and his legacy has shared that like his upcoming album, he still struggles with his ego. Wizkid said. “Everyone fights with their ego and that’s where I am, I’m still trying to get rid of my ego, like everyone else.”
In the music industry, Wizkid shared that he created countless albums, and canceled them until they were satisfied, “Make one, cancel it. Make another one, cancel it. Until I find the right album.” It should be an intense workout. “It’s, man. But I have a lot to say.” As the singer announced earlier; “I’m a very spiritual human being,” he says. “I know I’m making a lot of records in the club, but I really feel like a priest.”
Wizkid also made some social comments on the state of the Nigerian government and the upcoming elections, saying, “All these old men are out of power this time. They need to go to the old people’s home and relax.”
According to the story, Wizkid’s upcoming fifth album “More Love Less Ego” will be released on November 11th and not the 14th as it appears on his Apple Music profile.
