Wizkid blasted for being a ‘social media daddy’

CRITICISED: Wizkid's parenting efforts are being debated after the mother of his first child posted a series of messages about the star on Instagram

THE MOTHER of Wizkid’s first child has put the singer on blast for being a “social media daddy”.

Using a series of lengthy posts on Instagram, Oguda Oluwanishola, the mother of the Nigerian singer’s son Tife, set out to prove that the Ojuelegba singer was only giving the world the impression that he was a good dad, when in fact he had been nothing of the sort.

Oluwanishola has said that Wizkid, whose real name is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, has not been present for any of Tife’s seven birthdays.

She has also said that the 28-year-old only tattooed his son’s name on himself to appear as a caring father.

Oluwanishola wrote: “You tattooed his name so the world can see you as a loving daddy, I always wondered why you were always so quick to send clothes and shoes. Little did I know that all that was for appearances.

“Even the Star Boy chain and the other jewellery you claimed you got for him, did you or did you not collect it back?”

Commenters have criticised both Oluwanishola and Wizkid.

One poster who was among those who came to her defence said: “On behalf of all who read your comment and found it disgusting. Why should she stop trying to mend a broken father and son relationship. She is only thinking like a great mother. At least her son will never say ‘my mommy never tried to get my daddy to be in my life’ at this point when that conversation is to be had of why he was absent, this man cannot pass the blame to anyone but himself! Cutting a check does not make you a father yet alone a good father.”

Oluwanishola also posted numerous screenshots of the couple’s conversations.
