Wizkid Was My Best Friend – Tania Omotayo Relishes Moments With Starboy
Tania Omotayo says she enjoyed her moments with Wizkid and that he was her best friend at the time.
Tania Omotayo was popular in the early 2000s for being the girlfriend of multi-award-winning Nigeria singer, Ayodeji Balogun, known popularly by his stage name, Wizkid.
The two dated for five years between 2011 to 2016 and broke up for good when Wizkid’s impregnated his second baby mama.
Speaking in an interview, Tania said, though, she and Ayo were young, and that given Wizkid’s rising status, there’s no way, there wouldn’t have been issues in their relationship, but she enjoyed every moment with the ‘Joro’ crooner.
In her words, “I consider myself to live in my own world, I live in a bubble, and I don’t like things on the outside. Imagine being twenty-one and being thrown into the media at the time, when it wasn’t ‘normal’, I mean it wasn’t normal for people to be in a relationship and be so public.
“I think at that time we were the only one in that type of situation, I know a few, whether years later, Ice Prince came up with his girlfriend and a whole of that, and that was,….. it was new. So, it was bad, like, they insulted me for random things. At some point, they had nothing to insult and they started insulting my legs, that I have really skinny chicken legs.

“We were young, he was becoming a global superstar, there’s no way, that we wouldn’t have had issues, that would have been impossible. It comes with that life like I said in the beginning, I didn’t know what to do, but then I could have never predicted but towards the end, we both have clearly different things we wanted to do. But was I happy, yes, that was my best friend, and it was fine.
Speaking about what motivated her to want to have her own child the natural way, rather than use surrogacy or other alternative means available.
Tania said, “To be honest, I think that is the African in us. In our society, when you can have your child on your own, you are not worthy. But I think subconsciously, I can’t answer that question, but now, I think about it, I think it is African in us. You are brought up hearing stories that people are being chased out because they couldn’t have kids, meanwhile, it’s actually the man who is at fault. And you hear so many wild stories of people not having kids and how they feel worthless, useless, and stuff like that. I had an incredible childhood, I have fantastic parents, they gave me everything I could ever need, and I want to be able to do the same and more for my child, so it was very, I don’t know, I can’t explain it, I just want to feel… You know it’s different when you can conceive naturally because you are sick, I just feel like I was really angry with God and I don’t want to have that kind of relationship [with God].”
