The singer shared the controversial post shortly after Beyonce’s Black Is King visual album was released.

After posting the tweet, some of his fans were concerned especially because the singer refused to reveal what had transpired between him and the company.

Still in a related Wizkid story, Legit.ng previously reported that controversial musician, Blackface, called him out over some rude comments he made about President Buhari.

He said: “Everybody has their civil rights but you don’t have the right to be stupid. You don’t have the right to be stupid and promote your stupidity to everybody because you have a platform.”
