Ayo Balogun, popular Nigerian singer, also known as Wizkid, has come out to say that in the past he was also a victim of police brutality and that was the reason why he gave his backing to #EndSARS protesters who demonstrated in October against the Nigerian Police Force.

On Saturday, November 14, Wizkid bared his mind at Capital Xtra’s The Norte Show saying that he had brushes with police officers at various times before he became a star, where they intimidated and brutalized him.

Wizkid said on the show

“I have been a victim of police brutality myself before I became popular”.

“Police brutality is a serious situation back home in Nigeria. It has been 60 years of political injustice, nepotism, madness and corruption at the highest level.

“It is sad that my son is about to be 10 years old and Nigeria is still going through all these madness. If I didn’t speak up or use my voice, then I would be a coward.

“I will continue to speak about things that affect people in their daily lives. I had been a victim of police brutality before I became popular and I know it still goes on. That needs to end. We deserve good governance in Nigeria,”

Wizkid who is also known as StarBoy, said.
