Nigerian musician and songwriter Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, better known as Wizkid, is said to have given his assistant, Femi, who is believed to be his right-hand man, ₦30 million naira as a birthday present.
In a series of posts made on social media, the singer was seen entering an unnamed club in the company of the aforementioned aide, Femi, alongside other important personalities.
A video was circulated on microblogging platform X, showing wads of cash and Wizkid’s name, “Wiz,” clearly visible on the champagne board.
Soon after, several other videos emerged showing the celebrant, Femi, with a wad of cash in his hand.
The singer’s gesture to his right-hand man, Femi, sparked conversation on social media due to the considerable amount spent in one night by a notable personality amidst a harsh economy.
