This follows a post by a Twitter user who claimed that the young boy whom Wizkid had promised a cash gift of N10m and a record deal is still roaming the streets of Lagos: a narrative that painted the singer in a bad light.
Debunking the claims, multiple witnesses narrate how Wizkid gifted Ahmed the N10m cash gift but his parents misused it.
@frozio_tha_barber said, “Person wey post this dey go hell. The boy you talking about na from my street for ketu and i can confirm to you that Wizzy gave him the 10milli then, una fit ask anybody for ketu… if the boy dey rap for street dey collect money, ask him & his mother how they spend the 10milli, so saying what you don’t know, he fit don spend am on weed & drugs so making it look like Wizzy didn’t keep his promise.”
Another witness said, “Hello I want to address the issue of Ahmed. Wizkid gave him the money he promised but the boy parents misused all d money. I live in d same street with this boy in irawo ikorodu. U can ask if you get anyone who lives at irawo or ójómó area for ikorodu.”
