In addition, he talked about his love of design and his other interests, which he acknowledged he hadn’t given much thought to yet.
“If you weren’t an artist, what would you be doing?” the interviewer had questioned. You really are a style icon. “Probably designing clothes, sneakers, just creating cool stuff,” Wizkid retorted.
Further elaborating, he said, “I’ve never really seen myself doing anything but music. Though it’s difficult to see me pursuing anything else, I would really love to investigate fashion and filmmaking someday.
Fans saw what he said, and they quickly flocked to the comments area with their reactions.
