(+Lyrics + Translation) Reckless Meaning and Lyrics Translation by Wizkid

Music Review- Reckless by Wizkid

Reckless by Wizkid is the first track from his “Made in Lagos,” album.

What is the song Reckless by Wizkid all about?

I am not really sure why Wizkid titled this song “Reckless.” Except he was trying to say that he was carefree and did irresponsible things before getting his breakthrough.

But basically in the song “Reckless,” Wizkid talks about his struggles in the early days, the things that are of importance that he gave up before God finally blessed him immensely, and now, people surround him because of his wealth.

Wizkid is thankful to God for his blessings and says he owes nobody anything except his family. But if he must give, he would give wisely. This may be so because he probably felt no one was there for him in the time of help. Moreso, Wizkid believes people are ungrateful. Some of them end up wishing you evil or behaving badly after offering them help.
