The exchange of words has stopped fortunately, but the two young superstar singers, Davido and Wizkid, are still harboring beef for each other. When an upcoming media brand, The Culture Custodians sat down with the 21 year old pop star at his studio in Lagos for an in depth interview, the major highlight was his war with Wizkid and their rivalry.
During the interview, Davido couldn’t help but take some subliminal jabs at Wizkid. Take for instance, when he was asked for a release date for his album, Davido replied, “Me I no dey change date” , one can see that statement as a reference to the perpetual changes in the release date of Wizkid’s second studio album, something Bank W recently addressed.
He may also have subbed Wizzy when he spoke about how he has helped promote other artistes below;
‘Being the frontrunner, everything is God. God puts you in the position you’re in at all times and then you have to help the people. It’s why I’ve done collabos with Runtown, MC Galaxy (He was the first person in my studio and now has one of the hottest songs around). The list goes on. Diamond, I put him on in Africa. It’s just about making sure everyone is eating. Shoutout to Reminisce. Just bought a Benz. And he’s got the Samsung deal. It’s amazing knowing your vocals and your support contributed to other people’s success. That’s really how you stay at your position. That’s why Tu Baba (Tu Face Idibia) is where he is cos he f**ks with everyone. Unlike some people who will just be doing shakara. I don’t want to call any names.’
And that was not all… Davido’s label-mate, B-Red had recently been promoting a single which featured Wizkid just before the social media war of words between Davido and Wizkid started off.…after the shots were thrown B-Red went radio silent on the Wizkid collabo and instead started promoting a new single with Phyno – ‘IHATAGO’ set for release later today.
When Davido was asked about why he pulled the plug on the collab, he laughed it off and said,
“I’m not sure between him and Wiz. I think it didn’t work out but I’m not sure.”
When asked what he would do if he bumped into Wizkid and his response leaves no doubt that there is still no love lost between the two.
‘If I see him. Whatever. It depends on the situation, it doesn’t matter. We might greet. We might not. Who cares?
