Nigerians Mock Davido on Twitter After Wizkid’ s BET awards Nomination
Every music buff familiar with the Nigerian music industry certainly knows about the long-standing rivalry between Davido and Wizkid. Such rivalry is also quite intense between fans of both musicians.
The rivalry appears to gain momentum with each passing day; with the recent nomination of Wizkid for the BET awards 2021, fans of Wizkid took a swipe at Davido on Twitter for his dwindling performance in music that has failed to see him being recognised at the global stage.
Here are some reactions from the Nigerian Twitter community:
Starboy Alli tweeted: Davido featured six big American legends on his ABT album and still didn’t bag the best international act nomination at the BET awards 2021 lmao
MannyInk tweeted also:Davido has not been nominated for any international award since 2017, when are we going to start asking the necessary questions when it comes to him, abi it’s only wizkid that this is applicable to?
Wizkid fanpage tweeted:Drake’s most streamed song on Spotify is a collabo with Wizkid and Kyla but Davido fans are mad about Wizkid’s involvement in the song and tag it Gumbody because their mcm failed in that aspect. If successful collabo is easy, do it and let’s see the outcome.
Well, let Wizkid fans enjoy every bit of the moment, it is their time. Davido and his fans could have theirs at anytime.
