The award-winning Nigerian singer shed light on his newfound interest in the film industry following a visit to movie producer Kunle Afolayan. Wizkid and his team visited Afolayan’s restaurant and bar in Ikeja, Lagos, where they spent quality time together exploring the Kunle Afolayan Afefeyeye establishment. During the visit, Wizkid was seen generously showering Kunle Afolayan with bundles of money.
