OAP Toke Makinwa has revealed some of the prices singer Wizkid paid to get to where he is today.

In a recent chat with Chude Jideonwo, monitored by Grassroots.ng, while querying the youth of nowadays who just want to succeed without putting in the work, Toke said: “You don’t know the years Wizkid put in to becoming who he is today.

Young newbies try music for a year or two and are frustrated because it is not working…dude, when I tell people…I was at Rhythm and Wizkid used to carry speakers and he will be sent by DJs to buy Amala and he will do it.
