Popular Nigerian music stars, Davido and Wizkid have continued their verbal war, causing unrest among fans on social media. While we hope the duo put their beef to rest, Star Boy has lambasted Davido after popular soccer star, Ronaldo followed him on Twitter. Wizkid’s tweet after Ronaldo followed Davido is ‘pure jealousy’.
Wizkid, via his handle @wizkidayo, tweeted: “The future you see is better than the footballer you don’t see.”
In his response, Davido @ davidoofficial tweeted: “The footballer that follows you and you don’t see, is better than the Drake that never came closer.”

Some fans actually think their rants are for mere publicity. One of Davido’s follower @lola_1 tweeted: “These guys just dey use or head o. On top our MB, na so them dey make name dey go. If they ready to fight, make them come open field, we go watch. LOL.”

The songsters, who were in May listed on Forbes Africa ten richest musicians, seem to be locked in a supremacy battle. Earlier, they were engaged in a social media ‘messy fight’ during which Wizkid unfollowed Davido.
This may not be unconnected from the fact that Davido has kinda failed at breaking into the international market and relocating home in January, while Wizzy continued to dominate international airwaves.
In their recent rants, Davido shared a post on Snapchat on Saturday, 17 June, 2017, after the release of Wizkid’s single, “Sounds from the other side”. Davido kinda called out Wizkid in his post. Here’s what he wrote: “Na ‘pon pon’ sound dey reign now ooo!!! No dey jonze!! All other sounds nah d least for now LMAO.”
But in his reaction, the ‘Come Closer’ crooner dissed Davido indirectly. In a series of tweets, @wizkidayo tweeted: “U can’t hate on someone doing better than u in what u failed at! Learn and appreciate! Free ur mind from hate young kids. And remember kids!
“Drink more water!! ￼The game is only for the real! Catch up or stay local! Don’t blame anybody for ur failures! Pray and work hard kids!”
