Wale-Wizkid

Rapper Wale is currently being dragged by his fellow Nigerians for his reaction to Wizkid being referred to as the  first Nigerian artiste to appear on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

Genius a music lyrics website tweeted that Wizkid was the first Nigerian on the Billboard chart and Wale responded to the tweet with a “thinking face” emoji.

Nigerians were quick to remind him that he wasn’t a Nigerian born artiste and as such should not start claiming the country. Wow, Wale has never denied being Nigerian and Nigerians even stay claiming him so this about face from Wizkid fans is funny!

As Wizkid Calls Her Out For Lying. Was It Wrong For Seyi Shay To Say Drake Hijacked One Dance From Him

Seyi Shay keeps putting her foot in her mouth! I don’t understand why a seasoned artiste of her calibre would keep making these blunders…I mean she was trained by Matthew Knowles – Beyonce’s father for heavens sake!

The super talented singer is currently in Jamaica to promote her album and while there she appeared on a TV show Onstage TV which is where she said Drake‘s “One Dance” which secured him his first Billboard Number 1 song is actually Wizkid‘s song and the Canadian rapper “stripped” a lot of the song away!

Word on the streets in the music industry is that Wizzy gave Drake the song because Drake did not charge him for appearing on his Ojuelegba remix and let’s not forget that the song also gave Wizzy his first Billboard Number 1 as well as introducing to an entire mainstream US & Global audience that he could not have reached with Drake’s help!

Mr Eazi is signed to Wizkid’s Starboy Records, so I guess WIzzy was tryna let his BFF, Breezy know there’s more to him than being a recording artiste.

Breezy who is also an acclaimed painter who has exhibited his artwork at top galleries in LA & New York, did some digital fan art of Wizzy who he described as the biggest artiste in Africa.
