According to the Star Boy, the situation was so funny to him because he and Davido were on the same flight and he made a tweet because he once had a show in New York where the sound, venue were bad even though it was a sold out event.
Wiz noted that he then landed at the airport and was going to the hotel when he passed the venue and saw his name in lights and he then got down and took a photo with a caption that reads:
“I do proper shows, proper venues”.
The Machala star added that ‘people’ started to catch feelings. According to Wiz, if he was being shady with his post, other musicians who have had shows in the US should have gotten upset too.

He added that he was promoting his show and that if someone gets angry at him celebrating his progress, then he does not consider them a friend.
In his words:
“If I’m doing something for myself, happy about my success, and you're hating on my success, I don't know what to say to you. Should I consider you as a friend or a foe?”
Also in the interview, Wizkid noted that he returns people’s energies.
“If you don't come at me, I won't come at you. If you pray for me, I will pray for you, If you swear for me, I go say make God punish you”.

OBO added that all that time, he had been hearing that Wizkid had been saying things about him but he had ignored them.
Davido added that while on his way to the hotel spa, he was shown the post Wizkid shared about having ‘proper shows and proper venue’ and how he does real shows.
The DMW boss noted that if he and Wizkid were not on the same airplane, he would not have been hurt and that the fact that they were on the same plane and they even spoke made him realise that either Wizkid didn’t like him or someone on his team was fueling things.
Speaking further, Davido addressed Olisa’s question on how he knew Wizkid’s tweet was directed at him seeing as other stars had performed in America. According to OBO, it was very clear the post was directed at him.
