Starboy Wizkid whose real name is Ayo Balogun can be described as successful in any societal ranking or totem pole. His finances are not in doubt and if you were sceptical before, then on seeing the amount he spends on his kids alone, you’ll definitely be convinced.

One of his baby mamas Binta Diallo recently put Wizkid on blast for not spending enough on his second son Ayo Jr.

But according to checks by The Herald, Wizkid is paying more in child support than Lagos state governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

Binta Diallo revealed that Wizkid has spent $13,000 (N4.75 million) only on his son’s child support. Wizkid had initially disputed the paternity of the child and only started paying child support when the child was 15 months. The child is now 24 months. So on average Wizzy has spent N500k a month on child support for Ayo Jr.

How does Governor Ambode measure up when compared to Wizkid? Well, the good governor does not have any baby mamas but as the father of the millions who live in the commercial hub, he is alive to his myriad responsibilities.

Bolanle Ambode, the wife of the governor and first lady made available N500k monthly for the next 12 months to a Lagosian family who were recently blessed with quintuplets.

This amounts to N125k per month per child, a gulf of N375,000 exists between what the Governor is paying and what Wizkid is putting down for one son.
