Wizkid Throws Jab at Don Jazzy Over Statement Made by Ladipoe, Netizens Go Wild: “Him Must Collect”

  • Nigerian megastar Wikzid heated up the internet after an alleged statement made by American singer Justin Bieber about him
  • The Grammy-nominated musician pointed out that he had a lot on his mind but didn't want to spill it because they were vile 
  • He went on to fire shots at Don Jazzy over a statement made by his signee Ladipoe on Afrobeats artists  

Nigerian singer Ayo Balogun, aka Wikzid, is currently trending on social media after Justin Bieber's reported comment about him.

The Star Boy executive spoke on the viral screenshot that looked like it was taken from the US pop star's Instagram stories. He noted that he didn't want to say much because his words would be awful.

Apparently, the Mavin signee, on Sunday afternoon, April 28, challenged Afrobeats artists to live up to the culture, just as rappers in the country survived the 'hip hop is dead' era.

"Nigerian rappers that survived ‘hip hop is dead’ watching Afrobeat artists go through their own," he wrote.

Recall that in December 2022, in an interview with 10 Magazine, a British luxury quarterly publication, Wizkid asserted that the Afrobeats genre was innovative, as opposed to rap music, which he said was boring.

This ignited the narrative about the rap genre being dead and unworthy of an audience.

Netizens connected the dots to Ladipoe's tweet, which made them ask Wizkid, who now doesn't want to be identified as an Afrobeats singer, to speak on the matter.

Wizkid reacted by saying he wouldn't want to address a person signed to an influencer, indirectly noting that Ladipoe wasn't worth his attention and belittling the music powerhouse Don Jazzy, who is also into influencing gigs.

Wiz wrote: 

"lol, never chatting to anyone signed to an influencer. Next."
