It seems Nigerian pop star, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid is not done with the year 2019. It is not musically this time around but controversies.
He dropped a tweet this morning that he only cares about those who care about him. He asked those who don’t care about him to “Fuck Off”.
If this tweet is anything to go by, then, we should brace up for more fireworks of controversies from the ‘Joro’ crooner before the year runs out.
Well, he is never shy away from controversies and Twitter fights. Do you remember the online battle between him and Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji which lasted for almost 2 years? What of the one between him and actress Tonto Dikeh?
Wizkid vs Davido
Anyway, let us talk about the rivalry and online war between him and a fellow pop star, Davido. The war was so intense that it divided Twitter users into two blocks in 2017 and 2018. One block was known as Wizkid FC while the other was Davido FC. The loud battle of supremacy ended in December 2018 when they both performed in each other concerts.
Though the rivalry between them cannot be completely wiped away no matter how much they pretend, there has not been a lot of noise about it in 2019.
Early this year, one of his baby mamas and manager, Jada Pollock, almost dragged the star boy into another round of controversy when she shared on her Instagram page that Wizkid was abusive. She, however, came out to claim that the post was not from her and that her account was hacked.
In September this year, Wizkid said in a radio interview that he left his first record label, Banky W’s Empire Mates Entertainment (E.M.E) with nothing. He got a lot of knocks from most Twitter users but the dust he raised did not linger for too long before it settled.
Just a few days ago, the industry almost witnessed another round of beef when his long-time producer, Sarz dragged him out on Twitter. The beatmaker came on Twitter to allege that Wizkid doesn’t keep promises. To everyone surprise, Wizkid took the tweet likely and responded that “it is a spiritual something”.
Apparently, the most consistent controversy about the star is the one between him and his first two baby mamas, Binta Diallo and Shola Ogudu. The ladies have been complaining via social media that the star is not responsible enough for his first two sons. In fact, Shola recently claimed that the star has never snapped with his second son.
“Only care for who cares for me, the rest, fuck off”, the star tweeted. Now, the question is, who are the rest in this his tweet?
