Balogun joined Wigan on January transfer deadline day from Premier League club Brighton and Hove Albion.
The 31-year-old made only two appearances for Brighton this which came in the League Cup and Emirates FA Cup.
“Congrats to you my guy @LeonBalogun . I’m genuinely happy for you on this Move . All the best bro,” Ogu wrote on his verified Twitter handle on Monday.
Balogun was not in the Wigan squad that beat Leeds United 1-0 away on Saturday after completing his loan move the previous day.
However he could make his debut on Saturday against Preston North End.
Wigan are currently in the relegation zone – in 22nd position on 29 points, in the 24-team Sky Bet Championship table.
