Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, known professionally as Wizkid or Starboy, an ace Nigerian singer and Grammy award winner, has finally responded to his colleague Seun Kuti over backlash from fans.
It would be recalled that Kuti was mocked on Wednesday, June 23, after Wizkid received the Grammy plaque for Best Music Video for ‘Brown Skin Girl’ with Beyoncé.
Kuti had earlier this month claimed that Wizkid does not deserve to be called a Grammy nominee.
He insisted that he, Femi Kuti, Burna Boy and King Sunny Ade are the only Nigerian musicians to be nominated by the Grammy.
However, on Wednesday Wizkid’s fans mocked him online and called his statement a bluff.
Responding to the backlash, Kuti on his Instagram page wrote: “Una Don win, your favorite sabi shoot video pass me and my family. you know, say I be video director ‘Mumu’.
“We talking music, you talking hype.”
Reacting, Wizkid told him to go back to creating music and ignore his fans who came at him.
Wizkid wrote: “Don’t mind them jare. Get the sax and make some music brother.
“We all enjoyed your last album, we still Dey dance like this.”
