If you have been following the news recently, you should have come across the subtle beef between Ayo Balogun aka Wizkid or Wizkid FC, and Oluseun Anikulapo Kuti the youngest son of famous afrobeat pioneer, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
We have done a bit of digging and have been able to discover the reasons(s) why Seun Kuti has been dragging Wizkid and his fans on social media. According to Seun, Wizkid never won a Grammy award and his fans should stop bragging about winning one. He argued that the 'Brown Skin Girl' music video that won the Grammy Award should be an award for the video director and not for the artist as artists are not the creatives per se behind the music video.
He said Wizkid should stop parading himself as a grammy nominee as he is not one. He said that his father Femi Kuti, King Sunny Ade and Burna Boy are the only Grammy nominees in Nigeria.
Well, we think there is more to this sudden beef between Seun Kuti and Wizkid and here's what we think is the actual problem between them.
Seun is chasing clout
Seun Kuti is trying so hard to be on the news for as long as possible. He has not really built a name for himself since gracing the music scene. Seun and his team knows for sure that Wizkid has the most loyal fanbase in the Nigerian music sphere and the only way to get everyone talking about you is to attack him.
First, coming out with video clips to defame an artist like Wizkid is only unprofessional. Even artists like Davido and Burna Boy who we believe to not be in good terms with each other has never released a video series attacking ech other. For Seun to do such, there has to be something else. He must have some a target which is nothing but clout.
Let's look at it this way, if truly it wasn't clout, why share the screenshot from Wizkid when he only reached out to inform you to maybe stop the whole arguement. Why keep arguinh when Grammy even sent Wizkid a plaque to clarify the fact that Wizkid is a Grammy award winner.
