Nigerian singer and songwriter Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, known professionally as Wizkid has categorically stated that he will never date nor marry a poor woman.

There is an old Chinese proverb that says: ‘It’s as difficult to be rich without bragging as it is to be poor without complaining.’ This is exactly the case for Wizkid.

Could it also be birds of the same feathers flock together? Or because some women are just gold-diggers who go around milking rich young men?


Is it also a case of Wizkid belittling women and stating that when you are poor, it renders you ‘good for nothing?’

Many poor women will take respite in this quote: “Better to be a poor woman than the slave of the rich”.

Currently, the net worth of Wizkid is $4 million thus he can categorize himself as rich but if you are a woman and you are poor, don’t think Wizkid will ever give you a second look irrespective of all your qualities.

In an interview with Tontrends, the music superstar reacted to a question on whether he will consider marrying or dating a poor woman and he responded: “Never will I do such, even if I am sleeping I will never dream of marrying or dating a poor girl in my entire life. A successful guy like me is not supposed to be seen with poor girls talk less of marrying or dating one”
