1 Min Read

Grammy award-winning Nigerian singer, Wizkid, has made his first public appearance following the devastating loss of his mother, Mrs. Jane Dolapo Balogun. The singer had withdrawn from the public eye and ceased using social media in the wake of his mother’s passing, but he resurfaced recently after nearly a month of mourning.


The tragic loss of Mrs. Balogun occurred last month in Lagos State, as confirmed by Wizkid’s manager, Mr. Are. The news of her passing sent shockwaves through the music industry and among the singer’s fans, who shared their condolences and support during this difficult time.

During his period of mourning, Wizkid chose to step away from the limelight, using his social media platforms sparingly and refraining from public appearances. However, on September 13, 2023, he made a significant return to the public sphere.


Photos circulating online captured Wizkid attending the special viewing of the “Gabrielle Chanel Fashion Manifesto” at The V&A in London, United Kingdom. This marked his first public appearance since his mother’s passing, signifying his gradual return to the spotlight
