Legit.ng earlier reported that Singer Wizkid has been spotted in a trending video that gave fans an idea of how he spends his time when he isn’t recording music or working on music video shoots.

The Made in Lagos singer was spotted with one of his crew members, Tilly Adeshakin, playing table tennis in his apartment.

The boys didn’t have a proper table for the game and they hilariously converted the dining table in the apartment to suit their needs.
