Davido has further spoken on his feud with fellow
artist,Wizkid. In his latest reaction to the ongoing
squabble, the ”Omobabalowo” crooner clearly said it
was obvious from Wizkid’s tweet about his show in
the United States that he never liked him. He bared
his mind in a recent interview with the NET.
According to him, “Since I came out, there has
always been this comparison between me and
Wizkid, but there’s room for everybody, we are not
doing the same thing. Funny enough, we used to see
each other around at clubs and back stage of events,
and there was no problem at all. I’ve always been a
good fan of him, he makes good music, and it all
started with a flight to New York. Funny enough, this
is the second time we were on a flight together, the
first time was when we went to Benin and it was a
successful show.
“When we came out from the flight in New York,
people were surprised to see us together, so a lot of
people wanted to take pictures with us and show
that unity, and it felt cool. So we all left the airport,
he was going for his own show in New York, while I
was going for my Canadian tour, but I went through
New York. But about 3 months before his own show,
I had my own show and my venue was below
capacity, we had like 2,000 people inside and over
3,000 people outside, and you know people in New
York don’t waste time, they call the police over every
little thing. ‘It wasn’t anybody’s fault, but it’s the love
people have for me, it’s never happened in New York
history to have an African artiste sell out a venue, so
the venue was where they were expecting about five
hundred people and over 4,000 people showed up.
“After my show, naturally Wizkid was the next choice
for them to bring to New York. So when we left the
airport, you know I’ve been in America all my life, so
we spoke about hooking up later at night and just
hang out with friends and show them that Naija
boys can do it too. Only for me to get to the HOTEL
and the next tweet I saw from him was ‘proper
shows, proper venue’ and I was like common, to be
honest, if we were not on the same plane together, I
wouldn’t have cared, but the fact that we were
together in the same plane, same cabin and we
spoke. It was then I knew that either this dude
doesn’t like me or someone with him doesn’t like
me.”
Recall that in a recent interview with Wizkid, he
claimed he was not talking about anyone but
himself.
He then argued that Davido shouldn’t have taken his
tweet personal. “The situation is just so funny to me,
because we all were on the same flight, I was only
tweeting and talking about my show, I was talking
about myself, you know I had a show in New York a
year before that sold out, but the sound was bad,
the venue we used was crazy and fucked up. So this
time I landed at the airport, drove through the
venue and I saw my name in lights and I was like
wow, I came down, took a picture and I posted it
with the caption ‘Proper shows, proper venues’, and
people started catching feelings,” Wizkid had said.
“If I was really talking to anyone, then everyone else
like Iyanya and others that have done shows in the
US should be mad at it. When I saw it, I just smiled
because I don’t have time. If you get mad at that,
then it means you don’t do proper shows at proper
venues. I was just promoting my show. I feel like if
am happy about my success and you are hating on
it, I don’t know if I’m to consider you as a friend or
foe,” he affirmed further.
However, Davido feels otherwise, “it was very clear
he was talking to me, who else did a show in New
York, it’s very clear. I have no problem at all,
Nigerian music is just growing and it’s still the two of
us that’s taking it International, and I don’t have time
for beef, I’m just doing music for what I love, but at
the end of the day, I don’t want to be disrespected,
just leave me alone, I won’t disturb you and you
shouldn’t disturb me. Everybody knows he’s making
money and I’m making money too,” he said
