Nigerian music producer, Samuel Oguachuba better known as Samklef has gotten a 'knock' from journalist, Japhet Omojuwa, over an inappropriate tweet he made about singer, Tems.
Samklef had taken to his page to express his strong reservation against the way singer Simi called him out over his tweet about the Damage crooner.
However, things took a different direction after Omojuwa also waded into the matter to lampoon the producer for resorting to throwing jabs after Simi called him out.
Samklef in a post had noted that no one can break him as people had tried it for years without being successful.
Omojuwa, however, quickly cautioned him against presenting himself as the victim in the story.
His post read:
"Samklef, you disrespected and harassed Tems, Simi corrected you - a 5 word sentence - then you have been going off disrespecting and attacking her too. You aren’t the victim here, you are the villain who just keeps digging and digging. It’s sad and incredible to watch."

However, Samklef did not take so kindly to Omojuwa’s words as he tagged his action as 'eye service' while noting that his initial tweet about Tems was a joke.
Responding to the producer's claim of offering 'eye-service', Omojuwa called on Samklef to reflect on his life and find direction.
Not backing down from the exchange, Samklef made a reference to an old tweet shared by the journalist in which he made unsavoury comments about former president Goodluck Jonathan.
