Grammy award-winning Nigerian singer, Ayo Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, has revealed that one of his aims is to make music that will outlive him like legendary Jamaican reggae musician, Bob Marley.

He said he plans to change his song’s lyrics as well.

The Starboy honcho stated in a recent interview with Guardian UK.

Balogun said, “Now I am more careful with what I put in my songs because my kids listen to my songs.”

Following his new album, More Love Less Ego, the singer said, “Alongside managing my ego, one other aim for this new chapter is to live forever. I recently went to see Bob Marley’s musical, ‘Get Up, Stand Up!’ I was like, ‘Yo, we’re watching a Bob Marley play, and this guy died decades ago’.”

The ‘Essence’ crooner said, “Bob Marley did so much at a young age I didn’t even know that he died at 36. It just reaffirms what I do, and I have to keep taking this to the highest heights. Because I know one day, they are definitely going to create a play about me.”
