Muniru Olatunji Balogun, the father of Grammy-award-winning singer, Wizkid, has revealed that he was Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Alaba, Lagos for 14 years.

He served as the ward Chairman of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, and became the chairman of the ruling APC after the merger.

In a recent interview with GoldMyne TV, Balogun talked about his contribution to the Alaba community.

He said he lobbied for electricity to be brought to Alaba in 1972.

He said, “I came to Ajegunle in 1972. And at that time there was no light in Alaba. So, I’m the one that went to NEPA and made them come to survey the whole of Alaba and gave them light. So, those are my contributions [to the community].

“Also, I’m the Babadeen of Alaba Central Mosque. And also a former chairman of the APC for 14 years. I thank God that I’m still alive and my son, Wizkid is still doing well.”
