Nigerian music superstar, David Adeleke, better known by his stage name, Davido, has revealed that his Afrobeats colleague, Ayodeji Balogun popularly called Wizkid has been speaking frequently in recent months.

He said things changed after he lost his son and their hitherto strained relationship took a pleasant and familial turn.

Speaking in an interview on the Morning Show on Hot 97FM, New York, which was shared on Saturday, Davido disclosed that he and Wizkid spoke on the phone every week after the death of his son, Ifeanyi.

He stated that he and Wizkid had a 12-year rift and that they only began talking after his son died.

Speaking in the video, he said;

“With Wiz, over the years we had a rift, for 12 years we had a rift up until recently he chatted up and I am seeing the positivity.

“I am seeing the change in the industry a little bit because everybody is calming down, especially with my situation; the tragic situation that happened, he called me every week since it happened,” he added.

Recall that Davido and his fiancee, Chioma Rowland, lost their only son, Ifeanyi in November 2022, shortly after his third-year birthday.

It was reported that the boy drowned in a pool at his father’s house in Banana Island and was rushed to a hospital at Lekki where he was pronounced dead.
