So Wrong! Wizkid Threatens To Beat Saeon Up On Camera!



Over the last week there has been a lot of back and forth in the media about the fallout between Wizkid and rising R & B songstress Saeon.

The singer called out Wizkid for not promoting the video for her single Boogie Down, which she allegedly paid him N1.5 million to feature in. Like I said when I first reported this story if it wasn’t in his contract he wasn’t obligated to promote the song/video. [READ HERE IF YOU MISSED IT]

“We Are Not Friends”, Wizkid Replies Saeon After She Put Him On Blast



This week has been “Put Wizkid on blast” week, first it was Samklef , then Saeon and it just escalated from there.

A few days ago fast rising R & B singer Saeon expressed her anger with Wizkid, whom she said she had paid N1.5 Million to feature on her single “Boogie Down” and it’s video, but he had done nothing to help her promote or even acknowledge it when it came out.

According to Hip Hop World Mag, Wizkid took to twitter yesterday to address the Saeon issue, he wrote

It was strictly work. When did we even start talking that we should be friends like that? She came to me, no not me directly, to my manager and asked for a collabo. Normally i don’t charge my friends but hey she came with some cash and i gladly obliged.

I even gave her 10 percent discount. Thats a very generous move because it took her a month to get my attention. After that, it’s back to our separate lives. We are not friends.
