Spotlight on Jada’s Love Life – How She Met and Fell in Love with Wizkid
Jada, on her Instagram post, shared the story of how she and the Nigerian Starboy met. She disclosed that she met Wizkid in 2012 when she was still managing the American singer, Chris Brown. According to her, it’s been a blessing meeting and working with amazingly talented stars, especially the likes of Wizkid and Chris Brown.
The British-American music manager met Wizkid in 2012 but began working with Wizkid around 2014/2015. Their working relationship has produced lots of positive fruits, especially in the life of the Afro-pop singer. Jada has also helped Wizkid to seal deals that connected him to big names in the music industry like Drake, R Kelly, Chris Brown, etc., especially his collaboration with Drake. Before her, Wizkid already had two other managers, Sunday Dare and Dumi Oburota, who are both Nigerians.
Wizkid and his third manager’s working relationship shifted from a professional one to a romantic relationship, which they kept on the low for over a year. However, it was rumored that Star Boy was not so much interested in the relationship.
How Their Relationship Turned Sour and the Reconciliation that Followed
In 2019, the manager cum baby mama broke the internet with a post on her Instagram story, where she accused the singer of domestically abusing his manager. Jada announced she had stopped working with Wizkid and openly confessed that she had grown tired of covering up the singer who continuously puts his hands on her, leaving her with bruises. Noting that one can support someone as much as they can but will have to value themselves at some point. She further stated that she could not raise her son in that kind of environment.
The story, which was revealed through her Instagram post, was later deleted shortly after it had gone viral and gotten mixed reactions from Wizkid’s fans. She later came online to deny making the accusations. She stated that her phone was hacked and her Instagram compromised. Jada further claimed she wasn’t the one who typed the story.
After the compromised Instagram page saga, no one knows what later became of the case. However, the superstar was recently seen in May 2021, with Jada on a jet-skiing adventure in Ghana. Fans expressed their happiness over their reunion. Perhaps they met behind closed doors and settled amicably.
Jada Pollock and Wizkid Share a Son – Zion Ayo-Balogun
Wizkid and his third manager’s amorous relationship produced a child born in London on November 11, 2017. Jada was said to have taken in around Valentine’s day or a more accurate guess – February 2017. Sources have it that though Starboy wasn’t keen on the relationship, he had to accept the baby after Jada had publicized the child’s birth by posting his first pictures on Snapchat.
Wizkid, who already has two children from two different baby mamas, took to his Twitter page to announce his third child’s arrival, a boy named Zion Ayo-Balogun. Also, going by his Twitter post, the hashtag he used described the baby’s arrival as God’s blessing.
Wizzy has been seen having some quality father-son time with his third child. He once made a post of him, his son, and his father having family time. This might be a way for making up for his mistake with his other children where it was alleged that he was a “deadbeat dad.”
