Afrobeats superstar Wizkid has shared the reason why he doesn’t react to controversies about on the internet.
The megastar is known and has been praised in the past for his unbothered stance in the face of scandals. Wizkid in an interview with THISDAY shared that he prefers not to speak on controversies because he’s a private person and does not live off people’s opinions.
“It’s very easy. Only a stupid man will go around trying to prove a point to the world. And even at that, you’ll find that you can’t please everyone, that you cannot live off of people’s opinions,” he said.
“I think once you understand yourself and your true essence, nothing will faze you, people’s opinions won’t faze you. I’m just more of a private person, and I handle situations in that manner.”
The singer also shared why he supported the #EndSARS protests that rocked Nigeria in October 2020.
“It’s just because it’s something that affects everyone, it affects all of us. If you’re Nigerian and you’re young, it’s either you’ve suffered a police brutality experience or witnessed someone being harassed by the police,” he said.

“Harassment by the police is something that I went through growing up at times. And to think that my son may experience the same thing is terrible. The #EndSARS movement is a beautiful thing to see in the sense that our generation, the Nigerian youth, are coming together to make our home a better place.”
“That’s real love and that’s the real energy that’s going to go a long way in changing things in our country. So, it was important for me to play my part and speak about the things that really affect us as humans and as Nigerians.”
