The high-profile burial ceremony of Jane Dolapo Balogun, Wizkid’s mum, united the singer’s family and witnessed top Nigerian celebrities in attendance.

Mrs Balogun died on the 18th of August in London. The cause of her death was, however, not disclosed.

A funeral service was held at the Redeemed Christian Church of God on the 13th of October. The deceased bore four children, Yetunde, Omolara, Olubusayo and Ayodeji (Wizkid) and had nine grandchildren.

On Thursday, the Balogun family held a wake at the Balmoral Hall, Federal Palace Hotel in Lagos to honour Jane.

Attendees included Osas Ighodaro, Rudeboy, Tony Elumelu, Banky W, Tiwa Savage, Oba Elegushi, and Kwam 1.

Others included Mercy Eke, Kim Oprah, Faith Morey, Khloe, Eniola Badmus, Layole Oyatogun, and Pretty Mike.

Mourning his mum, Wizkid said, “I have no words to describe the pain that I feel, and I know every one of my family members shares this pain with me. I know the pain can’t go away, so I’m not going to say, ‘Take away the pain’, but I know God, in his infinite mercy, will comfort us to go on with life.”

“The pain is profound; it hurts deeply. It is the deepest pain I have ever felt in my life. I am lost, but I pray, and I know God will comfort every one of us.”
