Recall Wizkid’s mother died on August 18, 2023 in London.
At her wake ceremony held on Thursday, Wizkid described the pain of losing his mum as the deepest pain he has ever felt.
“The pain is profound. It hurts deeply. The deepest pain I have ever felt in my life. I’m lost but I pray God will comfort every one of us.
“I’m lost without you Mom, I love you so much”, he said.
His mum, a formidable cornerstone of strength, lent unwavering backing to Wizkid’s rise in the industry.
In 2014, Wizkid released ‘Mummy Mi’, a song off his ‘Ayo’ album. The song was dedicated to mothers across the world.
The singer praised Jane for all the joy she gave to him. He also promised to spoil her with the finest things in life.
