Ronaldo and Messi have been battling it out for years as the best player in history.
Nigerian music artiste, Ayo Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, has joined the discussion about who is the greatest player in history between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The Grammy Award winner said in a social media video going viral that he doesn’t watch football but would support Ronaldo.
More than a decade ago, the Ronaldo vs. Messi argument began to gain steam, and even certain Nigerian stars, like Mikel Obi, chose the Argentine striker over the illustrious Real Madrid player.
While Ronaldo was welcomed to the Saudi Pro League after making a stunning transfer to Al Nassr, Nigerian goalscorer Odion Ighalo declared his adoration for the Portuguese ace.
The Essence crooner, who has made waves across the globe, answered an interviewer’s question in a quiz when he was asked “Messi or Ronaldo” on Red Radio.
“I don’t watch football (laughs), Ronaldo I guess” ,the Nigerian musician replied, laughing.
The Nigerian artiste might not be a fan of football due to his dedication to his music, but the 32-year-old have had his songs played in several soccer stadiums in the past.
However, the Brown Skin girl featured artist will be taking his music to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium on the 29th of July, 2023.
