“Wizkid & Davido’s Fight Caused By Don Jazzy” – Nigerians Divided Over WizDav’s Beef
August 16, 2014 – “Wizkid & Davido’s Fight Caused By Don Jazzy” – Nigerians Divided Of WizDav’s Rivalry Fight
Fans of Nigerian singers Ayo Balogun and David Adeleke have lent their voice to ongoing supremacy fight that started when Wizkid embarked on a tour of the United States few weeks after Davido won BET awards.
Read fans reactions to Wizkid & Davido’s fight below:
Blame Don Jazzy –Theo Okenyi, CEO, Zenith Entertainment
Don Jazzy is to blame for their beef. Instead of playing the big brother role by calming frayed nerves, he chose to stir it and this is creating bad blood among the younger artistes. So please, you should direct your questions to Don Jazzy.
Let them fight on –Precious Chukwu, undergraduate
Let them fight on! The more beef there is, the more tracks we will have; let the beef roll on! It’s good for hip hop.
Cold war is healthy –Sam Sam, lecturer
It is a normal development. Even in families, brothers fight brothers and sisters fight sisters. Rivalry and cold war is healthy because it helps all the concerned parties to sit up. They will soon resolve the issue because it’s neither their first nor would it be their last.
Wizkid is to blame –Pete Goodness, businessman
They have been having this cold war for quite a while and I think the blame should be heaped squarely on Wizkid. He undermined Davido when he said that the instrumental of Davido’s planned collabo with him was below standard and that he wouldn’t want to lower his brand by going ahead with the arrangement. Even if that was true, shouldn’t he have talked to Davido one-on-one rather than disclosing it to a third party? If I were Davido, I wouldn’t have taken such an insult lightly.
Blame it on Wizkid –Deji Ibrahim, current affairs commentator
I will answer your question by lifting some of their tweet-fight from my phone. Davido tweeted, ‘Snitch. No wonder you are not rolling with your day 1 niggas.’ And in reply, Wizkid left the subject matter entirely and addressed another issue thus: “Thank you so much New York! Boys talk, men work.” Did you hear that? Is Wizkid now referring to Davido as a boy while he is a man? Okay. By your physical rating, who looks more like a boy between them? Even in terms of current national and international rating, isn’t Davido ahead of Wizkid? So, I would say that it is Wizkid’s fault.
Davido more mature –Ade Mommodu, strategist
What’s my business with their feud? They’ve got their fame and money so if they choose to wash their dirty linen in public, it’s their choice. But from what I read in their tweets, Davido seems to be more mature.
It’s a gang up against Davido
–Chinelo Okocha, corps member
Judging from what I have read about the face-off, I would blame Wande Coal, D’banj and Wizkid for the controversy. I see it as a gang-up and Don Jazzy is the unseen hand behind it all. That was why Wande Coal’s manager all of a sudden started charging Davido so much for his planned collabo with Wande. Davido should just forget them and face his career.
Blame it on Wizkid –Anne Adeseyi, undergraduate
It’s obvious that Wizkid is not comfortable with Davido’s soaring success. He exploits every available opportunity to throw jabs at Davido. And Davido always tries to cover up by claiming there is no feud between them. They should realise that they are brothers in the industry.
Wizkid is enjoying the beef –Maxwell Great, petroleum engineer
According to what I read about the face-off sometime back, Don Jazzy was said to have instructed Wande Coal, who used to mentor both Davido and Wizkid to stop visiting or associating with Davido. That was in 2012 and it was all about a rumour that D’Banj had signed Davido to his record label. One thing led to another and the kid-singers have been pitched against each other. And Wizkid seems to be stoking the embers.
Feud is strategy to reinforce their relevance
–Igwenagu Chinolue, pharmacist
Don’t mind them. They are only trying to make themselves more relevant. That’s usually one of the strategies that celebrities use to reinforce their relevance before the public. They keep throwing up one controversy or the other about themselves. They know what they are doing and it’s working for them.
Blame Davido for face-off –Linda Chidalu
The truth of the matter is that though Wizkid may be wrong but I am blaming Davido for the renewed face-off. Why is he always trying to force himself on Wizkid for them to be friends? The world is so large and full of potential wonderful friends so why should he force himself on Wizkid? Since he has seen that Wizkid does not have a soft spot for him, why doesn’t he look elsewhere for friendship and partnership?
Don Jazzy is the unseen hand behind the quarrel –Blessed Nnajiofor, lawyer
What many people don’t know is that there is an unseen hand behind the knife tearing Davido and Wizkid apart. And that hand belongs to Don Jazzy. Wizkid and Davido should look inwards so that they will know what is really tearing them apart before they tear themselves to pieces.
Wande Coal is a politician–Ayorinde Jennifer, civil servant
Wande Coal behaved like a politician. Why would he allow Don Jazzy to choose friends for him? Does anyone tell Jazzy whom to associate with? Why is he afraid of Don Jazzy? Is Don Jazzy God? Even if Davido had truly been signed on by D’Banj’s Label, isn’t it his choice, his life, career and talent? Did he buy or inherit the talent from Don Jazzy? If Jazzy has issues with D’Banj, why should he transfer his aggression to an innocent hardworking boy? Wande Coal rather than do what was right acted like a politician.
It’s just a rivalry war –Lawrence Igweh, student
Davido and Wizkid’s feud is not new. What is playing out now dates back to sometime in 2012. But as far as I’m concerned, it’s just another rivalry war between artistes and that is not something new in the industry. It’s all about the fight for supremacy.
Wizkid uncomfortable with Davido –Adebayo Ibrahim
I don’t know the details of the issue. But from the little information I have about the artistes, Wizkid appears to be uncomfortable with Davido’s galloping fame. But he is only being childish because fighting Davido cannot stop him. Wizkid should remember Bob Marley’s lines, Who Jar blesses, no one curse.
Davido will never see Wizkid’s back –David Balogun, undergraduate
In this world, some people would want to be wiser and grow taller than their fathers even as toddlers. That’s the best way to qualify Davido. If not, why is he always trying to pose as if he is better than Wizkid? But the truth is that no matter how hard he tries, Davido will never see Wizkid’s back in the industry.
Davido should respect Wizkid –Beatrice Hodonu, aspiring model
Davido is to be blamed. Even if he is older than Wizkid which I’m not sure of, he should at least respect him as an elder in the industry. As far as the Nigerian music industry is concerned, Davido is Wizkid’s junior and he should accord that respect to him no matter what.
It’s fight between D’Banj and Don Jazzy’s camps –Elendu James, importer
When you consider that somehow, Don Jazzy, Wande Coal and D’banj are connected with the current face-off between Wizkid and Davido, you will realise that it’s all about supremacy; call it rivalry between two main camps and the two camps are D’Banj’s and Don Jazzy’s.
Davido should ignore Wizkid –Graham Stephens, computer analyst
If I were Davido, I would have ignored Wizkid long ago and faced my career. Silence is golden and it is usually the best answer to answer an attention-seeker.
Wizkid should be cautioned –Temitope Adebiyi, undergraduate
Should I tell you the truth? They are fighting a supremacy war, period! I just pray that it doesn’t degenerate into a situation where they try to take the life of each other via hired assassins or charms. They should try to limit the war to tweeter and instagram. As for who is at fault, I don’t really no. But I think that Wizkid should be cautioned.
Davido started the fight –Sikirat Adebayo, hair stylist
I know very well that Wizkid isn’t at fault. Davido is always looking for his trouble by poking his nose where he has no business; Davido started this fight.
