So, while Davido was in the states recently for a sold-out show in his resident Atlanta, he cleared the air on the issue and gave a little insight as to what is coming up next for him in his career.
Check on it & Read how the beef started below
“Omo Baba Olowo” Vs. Wizzy?
TheNETNG published an article earlier this week, talking about how 2 of Nigeria’s top Afro Pop artists, Davido and Wizkid are no longer in talking terms.
It is reported that a sort of “beef” has been spurned between the two artists and the source continues that the “beef” dates back to when D’Banj and Don Jazzy split. According to the article, artists had to choose camps and this resulted in a falling out between these two young stars.
“It all started with the news of D’banj signing Davido to his DB Records back in May 2012 – the news turned out to be false, but this obviously didn’t go down well with the ‘other camp.’ ‘You see Davido was very close to Don Jazzy and the Mo’hits squad before they parted with D’banj. When Jazzy heard Davido signed with D’banj, he wasn’t entirely happy’, a close friend of both camps tells NET.”
“Don Jazzy is said to have immediately told Wande Coal (who mentors both Wizkid and Davido) to stop visiting Davido at his Lekki home. Davido, at the time, was still recording his debut album and had plans to collaborate with Wande and Wizzy on separate songs. When Davido contacted Wande Coal, the pop singer’s management asked for an exorbitant fee (reportedly N1.5m) for the collabo. Sources say Davido was keen to get it done, but his manager Asa Asika was having none of it. This ‘sudden policy’ led to a war of words between Asika and Wande’s manager Nana. The collabo never happened. Wande and Davido stopped talking and calling each other.”
“Davido moved on to record the much talked about duet with Wizkid. But when he sent the instrumental to the EME team, Wizkid, sources say, told them he couldn’t work with Davido on the song, saying the beat wasn’t up to standard and he didn’t want to lower his brand. Little did Davido know that it was his fight with Wande that made him (Wizkid) immediately take sides.”
The article goes on to talk about how far each artist has come in the industry, gives a little more insight on the alleged “beef” and reports that Davido‘s debut album’s first track, “All Of You” was inspired by these events.
