No Wikid, Davido all fine

No reason for excluding Wizkid and Davido, the artist insists

However, Wizkid and Davido fans may be disappointed because the two shining stars were excluded from the painting. The artist however told Legit.ng that there was no particular reason for the exclusion of the two singers. He said:

"The idea was to create a "Music Wall" at a Lounge. We settled for 6 music icons that cut across generations, various genres cutting across continents. The chosen icons are more personal than it is of their skills and success. For instance, Davido and Wizkid and the likes are not included not because of any big reason but more of personal preferences. Again the inclusion of Tuface and Burna Boy represents the younger generation of the Nigerian music industry."
