Davido might deny the brewing cold war going on between him and Wizkid and even tell everyone who cares to listen that the Pakurumo singer is his ‘brother’ but insider sources say that is far from the truth.
Before Davido bursted into limelight, he and Wizkid were unknown to
each other but that soon changed once Davido also became a household
name and they both got to meet and struck a chord of friendship until
sometime in May when the cordial relationship went sour.
According to an insider who knows the duo well and the source of
their no-love lost relationship, Wizkid was chilling at a hotel
somewhere on the Island and apparently wasn’t having a great time so he
decided to put a call through to his friend, Davido who at the time was
hanging out with five other friends of his. The Omo Baba Olowo then
instructed his aide to go and pick Wizkid at a hotel behind 1004
building on VI.
In no time, Wizkid had joined Davido and his group of friends at a
club in the civic centre where they had some drinks before carrying the
party to Movida on Idowu Taylor, VI. While there, Davido ordered some
bottles of Hennessey for himself and two other friends who had just
joined them and as they drank, Wizkid became tipsy and frail as he had
one drink too many on the night.
Immediately, he was carried to Davido’s car parked outside where he
allegedly threw up. All this while, Davido was nowhere to be found as he
abandoned his colleague and friend.
After a while, the bar tenders produced the bill which was about
N500,000 and since Davido had disappeared into thin air and bulking
under pressure to pay the bills, Davido’s aide took the bar tenders to
Wizkid’s home where he was forced to issue a cheque to cover their
This singular act put a strain on their relationship as Wizkid felt
let down by Davido. Already, their relationship had been tested
following the bitter break-up of Mo’Hits as both artistes had their
allegiances divided between Don Jazzy on one hand, and Dbanj on the
But what would finally prove to be the proverbial straw that broke
the camel’s back was when Davido was sending out invitation to guests
for the launch of his O.B.O Album and he didn’t send any to Wizkid. And
to add salt upon injury, Davido and his crew reportedly sauntered out
on a Wizkid performance to the consternation of many at the NEA couple
of weeks back in New York.
With these series of events coupled with Davido’s denial and Wizkid’s
obvious silence in the face of all the ‘beef’ rumor, isn’t obvious that
all is not well between these two super stars? On Wizkid’s part, could
this be the moment when ‘silence is golden?’ Time will tell.
