Nigerian singer, Reekado Banks has unfollowed Wizkid on Instagram. This happened shortly after Wizkid called him out for promoting a song in the midst of all that is going on in Nigeria.
Wizkid blasted the former Mavin signee- Reekado Banks, for trying to release a song they did together and promote the song during the EndSars protest.
Reekado Banks took to his Twitter to announce his new single he titled ‘Omo Ologo’ which featured Wizkid . He announced that the song would be out earlier that day, Wizkid seemed not to be having it, as he warned Reekado Banks to delete his Tweet.
Reekado Banks used the hashtag of the EndSars protest to promote his tweet and Wizkid was swift to call Reekado a fool and a clout chasing animal, who wants to use the #ENDSARS Protests to gain clout.
Wizkid later deleted his tweet, but Reekado seems to have drawn a battle line as he unfollowed Wizkid Ayo Balogun.
Wizkid was forced to move the release date of his fourth studio album “Made In Lagos” because of the unrest going on in Nigeria. Wizkid revealed that his album, ‘Made In Lagos’ which was set to be released on October 15, 2020, has now been postponed.
The music star gave out this information about his album on Twitter, after a fan asked him if he will still going to drop the album on the 15th of October, and he replied, “Not yet !! Mad times!!”
The “Mad times” Wizkid mentioned in his tweet apparently refers to the #EndSARS protests currently going on in Nigeria. He was also a part of the protest in London, where fans said he calmed an increasingly unsettled crowd in front of the British council.
Wizkid has been a strong voice in the ongoing #ENDSARS protest, so much that, Wiz’s first son, Tife, shared a powerful photo and video of Wizkid at the protest, with a caption explaining how proud he was of his father’s actions.
The post reads: “Go Daddy, That’s my Daddy. My Papa, My Hero. So proud of you and all that you do Dad. Steady setting the pace so high and being an inspiration to me and everyone all around the world. We appreciate you and all that you do in public and especially in private. I pray that God keeps guiding and blessing you with the wisdom to be and do even more great things. Love you forever Dad.”
Wizkid also recently said in a conversation with Kojo Ebron, that this fight is for his kids and generations to come, highlighting some of the hiccups in Nigeria; he said, “Nigeria do not have 24-7 electricity, and those who cannot afford generators, have to stay in darkness… I have people back home working for me everyday, imagine I’m in London or America and my producers are calling me that they have just been stopped by the police, just because they don’t believe they work for me…. we’ve been silent enough, because of this fear that they have instilled in us”
