Nigerian Afrobeats singer, Damilola Abdul Rasak Afolabi, also known as L.A.X has revealed that his father, Mr Afolabi, and former label boss, Wizkid jointly funded his music career.

He said that when he got signed to Starboy Entertainment, his father suggested that they make it a partnership and Big Wiz agreed.

L.A.X said he took the contract to meet his father because whenever he makes a business decision he always consults him.

He made this known while being interviewed on The Echo Room as he explained that his father said the partnership would be better for both artistes.

According to the Gbefun crooner, there were times his father gave him money for videoshoot and promotions, while Wizkid also dis same in other cases.

He explained that the Joro crooner was comfortable with the idea of them each bearing part of the cost of music production and marketing.

Watch him speak below:

CorrectNG reported earlier that Wizkid whose real name is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun promised his fans that they will no longer be required to purchase tickets before they can attend his shows in Lagos state.

He stated this during his December 2022 Live in Lagos concert, which he had earlier announced would be his last show in Lagos.

The award-winning singer said his statements are often misquoted, and the recent one about his concert in the city was one of them.

Wizkid noted he will have to start completing his sentences so that it will not be misreported by news outlets and social media users.

According to Big Wiz, when he made the post on his social media page what he meant was that it will be the last time his fans will pay for his show in Nigeria’s commercial capital because it will be free from 2023.

Speaking on stage during a pause of his performance, Starboy said that he felt it was unfair for him to perform all around the world and still return home to ask his people to pay and watch him perform.
