Popular Nigerian singer Wizkid, whose real name is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, sparked warm online reactions with a recent social media post about his colleague Wande Coal. Sharing a picture of the two at an event on his Instagram story, Wizkid captioned it simply, “Love of my life.”
This affectionate declaration went beyond romantic connotations, highlighting the deep respect and admiration Wizkid holds for Wande Coal. Their close relationship transcends music, as they’ve collaborated frequently, most recently on the track “Ololufe” from Wizkid’s December EP, “Soundman 2.”
Furthermore, Wizkid has openly acknowledged Wande Coal’s significant influence on his musical journey in multiple interviews. Their artistic connection and mutual respect are evident in their collaborations and public interactions.
While the “love of my life” remark might be interpreted with playful humor by some, it likely holds a deeper meaning for these influential figures within the Nigerian music scene. It reflects a strong bond built on shared experiences, professional collaboration, and mutual appreciation for each other’s talent.
