After much fuss and even criticism from his fans and people, he accepted the boy, Ayodeji, as his son.

In November 2017, Wizkid had a third child from Baby mama, Jada Pollock. She is a British-American and their child is named Zion. The news of his child, Zion was a big surprise to many people, because Jada was known as his manager and not his romantic partner. Without any issues like in the previous cases, Wizkid promptly accepted the child.
