Reasons why Wizkid and Davido parted ways and now fight dirty in public

Reasons why Wizkid and Davido parted ways and now fight dirty in public


The once buoyant relationship between Ayo ‘Wizkid‘ Balogun and David ‘Davido‘ Adeleke has finally hit the rocks.
The young pop stars are currently at loggerheads, according to an online publication -Wizzy’ and ‘Omo baba olowo’ are no longer on speaking terms.
Both artistes’ camps have taken sides and are on the verge of calling out names; the tension between both artistes keeps threatening the air of peace left.
Recently Davido and his HKN label crew were reported to have walked out of the NEA Awards show while Wizkid was performing. Fans are already asking questions, the most popular one being ‘what started it all?’
It was further disclosed that the dispute between Wizkid and Davido 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.’
Don Jazzy was said to be unhappy with Davido, following rumors of Davido signed with D’banj
Don Jazzy is said to have immediately told Wande Coal 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 for the collaboration. 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 collaboration 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 Wizkid immediately takes sides.

‘Wande is like Wizkid’s elder brother. Wizzy looks up to him a lot and anything Wande says, Wizkid will do. When Wande told him about what happened between him and Davido, he just took sides with him straight’, says our inside source.
Davido, losing on both ends, scrapped both songs and even though it was a huge blow, he didn’t let it get him down. The disappointment is said to have inspired the first track on his album ‘All of you.’ Davido, well known for his boisterous attitude, laid it all out on the song, claiming to be better than ‘everyone’, referencing artistes such as 2face, Psquare and D’banj as his mentors, conspicuously leaving out the MAVIN and EME crew. The MAVINS seemingly responded by not attending Davido’s album launch held at the Eko Hotel and Suites

After the Don Jazzy-D’banj split, crew members decamped and spoils were taken. While Don Jazzy took with him pop singers Wande Coal, Dr SID, and rapper D’Prince, and launched his MAVIN Records label with a surprise signing Tiwa Savage, D’banj went the other way with his younger brother Kay Switch. Other familiar friends like Naeto C, Ikechukwu, Davido, the HKN Gang and Mo’Hits hype man Special Ed readily affiliates themselves with D’banj.
Wizkid had a grand album launch at the Eko Hotel and Suites in 2011, with high profile guests including the First Lady of Lagos State Abimbola Fashola, Davido held his album launch at the same venue, also attended by notable personalities, including billionaire Aliko Dangote.
Both artistes have solid backing from their labels. In 2012, Banky W finally molded the EME crew into a powerful unit, with extra signings Niyola, Shaydee and affiliates Rotimi and X.O Senavoe. Davido has kept the business within the family, signing his cousins Sinarambo, B.Red, former Mo’Hits affiliate producer Shizzi (Dami duro) and DJ Snatch.
