Popular Nigerian artist, Lojay has named Grammy-award-winning singer Wizkid as a role model because of how he affected his musical style.

In a recent interview with Silverbird, the Monalisa crooner stated that he has been a fan of Wizkid since boyhood.

Wizkid, he said, was his biggest inspiration in the industry and inspired his musical style.

Lojay said, “I will say my biggest inspiration is, probably, Wizkid.

“He really played a big part in how I wanted to make music and when I was growing up, I was really a big fan of Wizkid. I’m still a fan, to be honest.”

It would be recalled that Lojay recently recounted how his ex-girlfriend stabbed him twice and smashed a kettle on his head over an argument.

Lojay while featuring as a guest on the latest episode of the On The Radar podcast disclosed that his ex stabbed him with a fork, and smashed his head with a kettle during a fierce altercation.

He said he was trying to make their relationship work, but tension escalated between him and his ex which led to a physical altercation.

He said: “It was just like a really rough time in our relationship and things were just running out of control. It had become really toxic for both of us. But we were trying to make it [the relationship] work.

“On a particular day, we had an argument. It got heated and I tried to leave the room, then she was like, I’m not going to leave the room. She locked the door and put the keys away.
