Wizkid, the Grammy winner, has begun the distribution of “N100 million to kids” for Christmas.


In a series of Instagram posts on Monday, the Afrobeats star said the resolution was in honour of Jane Balogun, his late mum.

The ‘Essence’ hitmaker also disclosed that he will kick off the distributions of the funds to children on Monday night, starting from Surulere.

“100M for the kids for Christmas! Lord bless us all start in Surulere tonight! All in Morayo’s name! The love of my life! ❤️❤️🕊️,” the singer wrote.


In now-viral footage, the singer is seen spraying wads of cash on the streets of Lagos while inside his lush automobile.


Passersby — both adults and kids — were also seen in the clip hurriedly grabbing their share of the flying naira notes.


The singer lost his mum in August. She was also buried the following month.

Born on July 14, 1957, Jane is survived by Muniru Olatunji Balogun, her husband and four children.

Her children are Yetunde Balogun, Omolara Osunkoya, Olubusayo Balogun, and Ayodeji ‘Wizkid’ Balogun.

Born in Surulere on July 16, 1990, Wizkid grew up in a polygamous home with a Muslim father and a Christian mother.


In a 2012 radio interview with Tim Westwood, Wizkid revealed that his father has three wives.

Known for his deep affection for his mother, the singer expressed it through his 2014 song ‘Mummy Mi’, which he dedicated to mothers worldwide.

With a huge fanbase, several awards, and honorary mentions, Wizkid is among the leading names in African music.

Last month, the multiple award-winning singer hinted that he is on a five-year hiatus from music.
