Wizkid ill, suspends music tours


Award-winning Nigerian music icon, Ayo Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, has  revealed that he is ill and, therefore, has cancelled some of his international shows.

The singer took to his Twitter page on @wizkidayo to  make this known, while urging  his fans to pray for him.

He wrote “Sad I’m typing this but I’ll be moving dates on my tour to get my health up. I appeal to my real fans to understand and pray with me.”

Wizkid had also in December 2016 announced he was taking a break from all music engagements till early 2017, after fans voiced concerns about his frail looks.(NAN)

    Take it easy Wizkid. Body needs rest sometimes. You cannot continue to work around the clock. It has medical implications. Many Nigerians overseas have health issues as a result of this kind of attitude of continuously working, especially those in the medical field and retailing. Many people are probably suffering from several illnesses ranging from mental-illness to physical exhaustion without knowing.

    I am surprise that many Nigerians have not correlated the high incident of broken marriages and homicides among Nigerian couple overseas due to this . Many people and couples continue to quarrel and fight over unnecessary things and they become easily provoked or irritated when they don’t have enough rest and take time out to enjoy life.

    Some already exhibit symptoms of mental illness without knowing. Enjoying life and taking time out does not mean traveling to exotic places. It might be as simple as just doing nothing and hanging out with love ones for a few days, just reading relaxing novels, taking long walk, walking your dog, etc. Relaxation does not mean spending money to show off. You get my point?

    What is success? Ask yourself….To continue to make money and build houses in Nigeria or everywhere, that you will never enjoy? Continue to make money to show off? Continue to organize parties to show off to friends? Continue to make money for what you don’t even know why or lack of self esteem? There are not how to enjoy life.

    There are downsides to accumulating stuff too fast. You either pay for it with health crises, broken homes or your life. A word is enough for the wise.
