"We used to send Wizkid to buy Amala" - Toke Makinwa

In a chat with Chude Jideonwo on why young people of today just want to succeed without putting in the work, Nigerian TV and Radio presenter, Toke Makinwa spoke on the struggle of superstar singer, Ayodeji "Big Wiz" Balogun before he became a star.

She said when Big Wiz was an upcoming artiste, he do hangout in their FM studio and ran errands for them such as going to buy Amala for the Disc Jockeys in the studio and even carrying the speakers for them.

She said, " Young newbies try music for a year or two and are frustrated because it is not working. I was at Rhythm and Wizkid used to carry speakers and will be sent by Disc Jockeys to buy Amala and he will do it, he was the studio rat, just help me play my song, he will say.

" People look at him now and say he is arrogant not knowing the work he has put into this journey. It is the same way people can look at me now and say I got it all easy but if you have been following my career, and seeing the hard work I put in, all I enjoy now are from my hard work"

Do not despise the days of humble beginnings. Keep grinding.
