Samklef, the producer of Wizkid’s hit single, Tease Me and five other songs in Wizkid’s first album says Wizkid, aka Star Boy cannot write his success story without acknowledging him. The Nigerian music producer and singer said he is no longer at war with Wizkid. He made this disclosure in a recent chat with the Punch. Wizkid can’t write his success story without acknowledging me – Samklef.
Samklef said: “I am part of Wizkid’s history whether he likes it or not and he cannot write his story without mentioning my name. I have always respected Wizkid’s hustle from day one. He has a strong will. So far so good, we have settled the misunderstanding between us in 2015 after one of my trips from America.
Wizkid can’t write his success story without acknowledging me – Samklef
“We are all busy now, so I am no longer worried about whatever people say because at the end of the day, we all have our journey in life and success is the most important thing. I am no longer bitter at Wizkid, the past is gone,” he noted.
Recall that about 2 years ago, it was in the news that Samklef was bitter at Wizkid because he refused to acknowledge the part he (Samklef) played in his life. The producer said Wizkid no longer work with him and that he is painfully going about, talking down on his talent.
Here’s what he told LIB then: “I’m not happy with Wizkid. I like his music, but I don’t like him as a person anymore. The reason I don’t like him anymore is, why do you go about spoiling other people’s business?
“I never spoiled your business, never came out to say anything bad about you for four years. So why would you go to an OAP and tell the OAP that the reason why you no longer work with me is because my beat is amateur.
“What does that mean?
Those amateur beats was what brought you to limelight, was what made you meet the same Akon who first dropped ‘Don’t Dull’ on your voice.” Samklef added.
