This week, Shola Ogudu, Wizkid’s baby mama broke the Internet when when she shared a rather heartbreaking story on her Instagram page. Read the lengthy story and chat screenshots here.
According to her story, Wizkid has been an absentee father to their 7-year old son Boluwatife, and a not so pleasant baby daddy to her.
If you cannnot read the full gist, someone made a Twitter thread highlighting the main points. Read it here.
Here’s an apt summary of the gist by the way;

Wizkid needs to do better
Wizkid saying he can’t wait for the son to be 18 is funny, like you could absent in your boy’s life all through his formative years and turn up 18years later and expect him to have a relationship with you? It’s not an electric bulb switch .
— The Papi (@tawah89) September 20, 2018
At the end of the day. Bants aside. I hope we all agree that Wizkid needs to do better.
— Mazi Ibe (@I_pissVodka) September 20, 2018
Wizkid missed 7 birthdays but niggas still talking bout “There’s two sides to every story” like Tife out here stealing Wizkid’s clothes or something Lmfaoo
— Hank Moody (@HakeemJags) September 20, 2018
I feel so bad for Shola & I think initially, Wizkid never truly loved her & he's still angry at the fact that she had a baby for him.
No matter what, you don't treat the mother of your child like that.
No compassion at all
I think girls that lust over celebrities can learn
— OTUNBA COFFEE® ☕️ (@blac_cappuccino) September 20, 2018
Shola has some learning to do too
Like this guy doesn’t care about you. What are you checking up on him for? Ignore him.
“Tife, your daddy is dead” is not hard like that. 😑
— Gold ✨ (@MsTariah) September 20, 2018
‘ I want to see Tife.’
When your answer should be ‘You must be lost’

Wizkid pays his son's school fees
Wizkid pays his son's travel fees.
Wizkid sends money for upkeep.
Wizkid buys footwears & clothing for his son.
The problem here is Wizkid doesn't like Shola. If Wizkid doesn't want a family then leave him & move on. Self Respect & Self Worth

Bolu: "Mummy, where is my daddy"
Sola: *starts crying*
"Your daddy have lazdent"
— THE MAN (@timileyin_) September 20, 2018
Shola Ogudu said she had had Wizkid's female friends walk up to her to tell her how Wizkid would ask Tife to touch his friends' boobs and ass , so as to sure he is not gay.
Is Wizkid not mad?
Sorry, he is actually mad.
Very very 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️
— Khaleesi of the Dothrakhi👑 (@_apinkeade) September 20, 2018
Poor Tife though. He’s the biggest victim in all of this. The constant disappointment then turning on tv and seeing your dad everywhere with your new sibling.
— Fat Bitch Energy (@Cuntosaur) September 20, 2018
Wizkid will text “I want to see tife” the girl gets him ready and he doesn’t show up. That boy is crying Inside and hurting
— amala looks like foot stone (@nnay_eeeee) September 20, 2018
That Tife boy will grow up to see Daddy showing all the love to Zion
Do you know how scarring that can be? Nothing worse than feeling like you’re the unloved child
— Mo🍭 (@Sandymonajj) September 20, 2018
We always expect these
Davido is WAYYY busier than Wizkid. Has 2 kids who live in 2 different countries. Davido faceTimes them, visits his kids, has a good relationship with their mothers, he introduced both his kids to each other, attends their birthdays etc.
There is NO EXCUSE for Wizkid.
— The Ynxxx™ (@Yxclusive) September 20, 2018
Davido loves mayorkun more than wizkid loves his own child 😂😂😂.
— PASTOR OLA 😇 (@Biisi96) September 20, 2018
Davido is obviously a better Father than Wizkid
You are young,
DNA has confirmed that the child is yours
You are RICH meaning capable of taking care of the child
Why not be a man? If not for anything, you once loved his mother and ejaculated inside her… Manage the RESULT fam
— Enekem 💎 (@EnekemGreg) September 20, 2018
Davido went as far as kidnapping his baby just to show you how much he wanted to be in his child life. 😂

Shola: Why are you here? Where's Gbenga?
Wizkid: I came myself to pick up my son.
Shola: *Sigh* Go on

Wizkid: Hello Shola, can I talk to Tife?
Shola: Oh, he's asleep, maybe tomorrow.
Shola: Yeah. So how's work? Hope you're fi…

— JAGS (@EtniesJags) September 20, 2018
A moment of truth?
If Wizkid wasn't a Celebrity….if he doesn't own that fame and money, will Shola be this enduring?
Will she give him this much respect and tolerance?
Wizkid fans, let's be honest, if Shola was your sister, would you love her to be treated this way?
— OTUNBA COFFEE® ☕️ (@blac_cappuccino) September 20, 2018
Bants aside, IF (emphasis on IF) Wizkid pays his child school fees, looks after him appropriately, invests his time and what not, but doesn't want anything to do with Shola, I think that is absolutely fine. You can't force yourself on someone who doesn't want you.
— Dr. Dípò Awojide (@OgbeniDipo) September 20, 2018
Wizkid doesn't like Shola and it's obvious with the way he treats his child too. He never wanted the child but 7 years is a longtime for him to have grown up. You can spend all the money you want on a child but if you don't show that fatherly love then all that wealth is a waste.

Nigeria Air has been suspended
About two months after unveiling Nigeria Air, the Nigerian Minister of Aviation Hadi Sirika took to Twitter on Wednesday this week to announce the suspension of the national carrier.
I regret to announce that the Federal Executive Council has taken the tough decision to suspend the National Carrier Project in the interim. All commitments due will be honoured. We thank the public for the support as always.🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬
— Hadi Sirika (@hadisirika) September 19, 2018
How Nigerians reacted on social media;
When I said #NigeriaAir was a scam your twitter retard overlords called us idiots. Omojuwa, Kayode, how work? Irresponsible old men.
— Fort (@fortxyz) September 20, 2018
Fact is #NigeriaAir never existed, it was a scam.
Apart from the logo that was designed in Bahrain, let them show Nigerians any other thing about it.
N1.5bn cool cash in their accounts.
— Lere Olayinka – Aresa 1 (@OlayinkaLere) September 20, 2018
The logo cost N183million naira
N1.5 billion paid to six companies for advisory
What a Monumental waste!
We must not allow the lifeless drag us to limbo.

Some of us that believed in project #NigeriaAir did so outta Patriotism and the love for the country.
We actually want the country to work, "No b say we foolish like dat."

Someone should resign or be sacked for this #NigeriaAir fiasco! Probably the Aviation Minister. Really sad & embarrassing ☹️

Apologies are in order
We owe you an apology, Dr. @obyezeks. At least, despite my blind faith in the ill-fated #NigeriaAir, I managed to see the validity of your pessimism. You’ve seen more than we have, lived more than we have, much more than we have, enough to tell a scam from a long distance. pic.twitter.com/85zVOhmXJe

Some people are optimistic
I was utterly shocked about the suspension of #NigeriaAir, but I commend the sincerity of Buhari's Govt for not keeping the populace in the dark. This is a mark of integrity and a difference between this Govt and previous Govts. I hope the Govt will come back with the best plan.
— Ugochi Jane Trumpet 🇳🇬🇪🇸 (@UgochiJaneTrump) September 20, 2018
Will we be happy if FG has gone ahead with #NigeriaAir and it flops? Some folks here will roll out drums to celebrate if that happens just as they killed Nigeria Airways. Baba @MBuhari saw their plans and re strategized. #leadership

God bless Nigeria 💪.
— Adamu Hayatu™ (@AHayatu) September 19, 2018
I have absolutely NO REGRETS believing and praying for #NigeriaAir. Whether it materializes later or never, I won't stop being optimistic and hoping that it, like any other Nigeria project, succeeds. And, prayers are never meant to substitute required works.
May Nigeria succeed!

Officials of this govt really make life very difficult for their supporters. The #NigeriaAir fiasco was an avoidable mess. Too many things obviously didn't add up- minority stake, no investors, yet negotiating for jets. But they pushed their supporters to go & defend nonsense.
— Baba (@ChykeBaba) September 20, 2018
Before the minister’s announcement, we published a story on the imminent demise of Nigeria Air based on budgetary allocations dating back to 2016, read it here.
South Africa legalises marijuana
Meanwhile in South Africa, pro-marijauna activists were celebrating following the legalisation of growing weed for private consumption. Just so you know, “Dagga” is a South African word for weed.
South Africa's constitutional court has ruled that the private use of marijuana/weed/dagga (list is endless) is legal.
South Africans will now be able to legally smoke/ grow cannabis at home.
— Samira Sawlani (@samirasawlani) September 18, 2018
Government wishes to emphasise that the sale of #Dagga is still illegal in SA. South Africans are reminded that substance abuse is dangerous & harmful to their health.

Davido campaigning for his uncle
Asides trending for supposedly being a better father than Wizkid, Davido was a topic on social media this week for campaigning for his uncle Senator Ademola Adeleke (AKA The Dancing Senator) who is a candidate for the upcoming Osun state gubernatorial election.
— Davido (@iam_Davido) September 18, 2018
— Davido (@iam_Davido) September 19, 2018
Davido is destined to become the youngest Governor of Osun State at some point. NYSC getting locked in. Already on the campaign trail, familiarizing himself with the people & the process. Family building a political legacy in the state.
It’s only a matter of time.
— Ovie (@OvieO) September 18, 2018
Davido is campaigning for his uncle like the election depends on him.
If you don't like Davido, you have to respect him for one thing; the way he puts his energy completely in whatever he's doing.
I stan! 🙌💯
— OLUWASAANUMI 🇳🇬 (@SanRomeo) September 18, 2018
Davido is using his fame to dedicatedly support his uncle's Governorship ambition. He's working so hard for his campaign even more than his kids (who are also helping out). This is so admirable. It's so important to be supportive. pic.twitter.com/eceVPNyvrT
— World Publicist (@IsimaOdeh) September 19, 2018
One thing is sure…Davido will not be performing at any Aso Rock event in the near or foreseeable future.
— Dolapo Oni (@Dolarpo) September 20, 2018
Davido really metamorphosed into a grown man in the last 2 years. Keeping a relationship, being there for his kids, getting involved politically. A king.

Jimi Agbaje joins Lagos gubernatorial race
This week, recurrent Lagos state gubernatorial candidate Jimi Agbaje announced that he’ll be running for the governorship position in the state come 2019.
— Channels Television (@channelstv) September 19, 2018
Why are we just hearing from him though?
Jimi Agbaje went into hiding for 3 solid years. Today, he wakes up and wants to contest election in 5 months. Shouldn't he have been criticising Ambode's policies all this while? Shouldn't he have been explaining in the last 3 years what he would do if elected to replace Ambode?
— Dr. Dípò Awojide (@OgbeniDipo) September 19, 2018
Every four years, Jimi Agbaje sneaks out of the shadows to mark the ‘Governorship Aspirant’ Register, then goes back to hiding.
— FAVOUR ONYEOZIRI (GCFR) (@Rouvafe) September 19, 2018
Even Ngozi sef is positioning for what is to come. Jimi Agbaje went to hide. https://t.co/XMWCk8TLW3
— Dr. Dípò Awojide (@OgbeniDipo) September 19, 2018
Someone needs to remind Jimi Agbaje that this method of waking up a few months to every election year and then announcing to run is a time-tested guaranteed way to lose the election.
You can’t practically be in political oblivion for 3 years and just assume you remain relevant.
— YourFavOnlineDoctor (@DrOlufunmilayo) September 19, 2018

To be honest, I don’t think Lagosians are worth the trouble. The kinds of people who Jimi Agbaje appeals to won’t go and vote, they’ll stay home and say it’s stressful and dangerous. Whereas the people who sell their votes for 1k will stay at the polling unit from 8 till 6pm. https://t.co/A7mgdZSAHU

If @APCNigeria loses Lagos to PDP, they will have themselves to blame. Ambode was easily going to win the election before the drama started. If Ambode is not given the ticket, I, my family and friends are all voting Jimi Agbaje
— Wekeepwinning (@Yobolevel) September 19, 2018
Jimi Agbaje contested for the PDP chairmanship and lost to Secondus., so I don’t understand the hibernation you people are talking about. You don’t have to be a critic or nuisance to be politically active.
