Carter Efe indicates interest in meeting his idol, Wizkid in Lagos
Nigerian comedian turned singer, Carter Efe, has said he would love to meet his favourite musician, Ayodeji Balogun aka Wizkid.
He said that he heard Wizkid was in Lagos, and he felt it was a perfect opportunity to meet the person that inspired him to make a song.
Carter had earlier said he made the hit song, Machala as a tribute to Big Wiz even though he has never seen or met him in person.
Starboy who lives in Ghana with his family landed in Nigeria days ago and for his annual end of the year show which took place in Lagos.
Carter Efe took to his Twitter account and wrote; “I wan see Wizkid. Wizkid don dey Lagos.”

Meanwhile, Nigerians took to social media over the weekend to react to reports that Afrobeats star, Wizkid failed to invite Carter Efe to his show but brought out Berri Tiga.
Wizkid held his Starboy Live in Lagos concert at Eko hotel on Saturday and it was star studded, however, one highlight that got people talking was when Berri Tiga hopped on stage to sing Machala which is owned by skit-maker, Carter Efe.
People were expecting that Carter and Berri would mount the tage to perform together or at least if both can’t come then Efe should be the one invited since it’s his song.
An attendee expressed shock that Tiga was the one invited not Efe and recorded the moment the musician was performing the hit song alone.
The fan expressed sadness that Carter Efe did not get the long awaited chance to achieve his dream of performing on the same stage with Big Wiz.

CorrectNG reported weeks ago that Berri Tiga resumed dragging content creator, Carter Efe over their copyright saga on the song, Machala.
He claimed the comedian turned singer gave him N200,000 as 30 percent royalty from the earnings generated by the hit track.
Speaking during an Instagram live session, Berri slammed Carter Efe for giving him a very laughable amount.
He lamented over being cheated of of getting his fair share from the song which rose up to the number one spot on streaming platforms.
Berri Tiga mocked the skit-maker by saying that music business does not operate the same way as the online comedy industry
The ‘God’ singer used reference from the internet and wondered if the money Carter Efe sent to him is meant for ‘garri or eba’.
