Nigerian Top Afrobeat Maestros Who have beefed With Each Other
Davido and Wizkid
The two Afrobeat sensation, Davido and Wizkid have quite acquired peaks every single music star around the world admire.
Away from this uniqueness and greatness, they are popularly known for their strong relationship bond ever since they struck the limelight. However, at all odds, these two stars have recorded the longest diversity feud in the history of the Nigerian Afrobeat.
Most of their fans are not enlightened by the fact that Davido and Wizkid were close friends amid how their long-term beef has reshaped them into an image of intense rivals.
No one could vividly point out the pinnacle of their feud following how the two stars have refused to notify or detail the world about the root of their long-term feud.
However, from exploration, we have been able to point at fame, similarities, fan base and hierarchy as the pinnacles of their feud.
In the last decade, the two became the future of the Afrobeat legacy. They maintained this peak and their friendship until they became big and their feud sparked.
However, it was believed that Wizkid’s fan base sparked the feud. This transpired when a random fan aggressively accused Davido’s father of possibly using his late wife who is Davido’s mother for his money ritual taste. This heavily grieved Davido who reminded the random fan that he is better than his favourite who is termed to be Wizkid.
This got directly to Wizkid who replied with a highly composed punchline that would go on to become Davido’s trademark and nickname. The ‘Holla at your boy” crooner referred Davido to as a “frog voice” which heavily created grudges between the two singers and their fan base.
Davido’s teams have mostly beefed wizkid on several occasions while Wizkid has snubbed and classically embarrassed Davido in many circumstances.
Davido and Wizkid have currently quenched their beef after over 10 years of cruel rivalry. Despite that they have settled their feud, Their fan base is the most heated rival in Nigeria.
Don Jazzy and Olamide
You could repeatedly admire the sweet bond impacted between Don Jazzy and Olamide all day but may be denied the knowledge that they were once recognised as the best enemy.
Before their current Record Label glory, Don Jazzy and Olamide clashed during a Headies annual musical award ceremony.
In 2015, Olamide’s signee, Lil Kesh and Don Jazzy’s signee, Reekado Banks were nominated for a headies award in the same category.
From records, the two youngsters from YBNL and Mavin Record Label bossed their year and emerged as the fan’s favourite as of then. In reality, it was even a tough decision for the Headies team to announce the winner of the ‘Next Rated Artist’ amid how the two were at their best peak as of then.
However, from votes and other incredible points, Reekado Banks was announced the winner of the prize. This didn’t likely digest well with Olamide’s nerve who acted according to how his emotion instructed him.
He interrupted the show and reminded everyone who deserved the award then disdainfully smashed the microphone on the ground with an instant exit.
Don Jazzy also was heavily aggrieved by Olamide’s arrogant approach and addressed the situation with the claim that he is willing to give out the prize to Olamide if he needs it.
They however quenched the beef a few years later but have quite created an iconic moment that has refused to fade from the mindset of the Afrobeat Enthusiasts.
Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay
The two Nigerian sensational Afrobeat Feminine, Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay also have been involved in a brutal clash in the history of Afrobeat.
Theirs is not tagged as an “ego” for their heated feud is still active to date. Just like Wizkid and Davido, the pinnacle of their feud is yet to be known but from explorations, there are convincing reasons.
These reasons are centred on several occasions, Sheyi Shay had called out Tiwa Savage for allegedly practising plagiarism on her songs. This trended via all the social media handles and caught the attention of Tiwa Savage who decided to ignore and endure the pain.
No one knew if Tiwa Savage stole Seyi Shay’s songs but she proved that the allegations caught her nerve after she was spotted clashing with the singer in a saloon.
In the disturbing video that went viral, Tiwa Savage was spotted aggressively yelling and cautioning Sheyi Shay to stay away from her status and also deter her from talking to her under any circumstance.
After the clash had gone viral, we were able to identify that the two clashed because Sheyi Shay condoned hypocrisy despite having accused Tiwa Savage of song theft.
Tiwa Savage never talked about the incident even in interviews but Seyi Shay carried on with what fans outlined as a “Clout chasing”.
However, some sources have disclosed that the two have quenched their feud and are willing to release a song together.
Ruger and BNXN
The new phase of the Nigerian music firm in no doubt followed the footstep of their idols. The Nigerian singers, BNXN and Ruger clashed on Twitter after a fan sparked it.
The fan who was filled with emotion and confidence confronted Ruger with the claim that he is in no way closer to BNXN’s musical qualities.
This didn’t likely digest well with Ruger who bounced back with some punchlines. According to him, he outlined that he has got some love for the singer but he is in no way better than him because his pinnacle of transcending is embodied in featuring already established music stars.
BNXN emotionally replied to him with a cruel response that kicked off their current feud. He reminded the girlfriend crooner of the need to know that he shouldn’t talk to him so far he is yet to be recognised as a boss.
