Alex Iwobi, the Fulham midfielder, expressed gratitude for the support he received from singer Wizkid during the early stages of his career.
Iwobi, formerly of Arsenal, mentioned that Wizkid was kind to him when they first encountered each other, even though Wizkid was unaware of his identity at the time.
In a recent interview with Oma Sports TV, Iwobi shared that Wizkid’s concert at Tottenham stadium earlier this year was his favorite show, and he had a great time attending. Iwobi described Wizkid as a very humble and nice person.
Although they didn’t meet on the day of the concert, Iwobi had previously interacted with Wizkid and appreciated his down-to-earth nature.
He said, “Wizkid’s show at Tottenham stadium is my favorite Nigerian show, I really enjoyed myself. I didn’t get to meet him that day. But I’ve met him previous times and he’s a very nice and very humble guy.
“The first time I met him, he showed me love when he first met me even though he didn’t know who I was at the time. I’ve seen him in stores and even in the club as well, and he has always showed me so much love. He is someone that I really respect.”
