Iyanya fumes, insults critic over comparison with Wizkid

Budding Afropop musician, Iyanya has lashed out at a social media user for downplaying his musical achievements in a bid to highlight why ace singer, Wizkid is “hated” in the music industry.

A Twitter user with username @itzbasito had written: “Wizkid’s only crime is surpassing the benchmark set for him and becoming the benchmark himself”

Another tweep @Xperience_Snr quoted the post and stated that expectations for Wizkid was for him to end up like Iyanya and Samklef.

“Same reason why Drake gets a lot of hate. The whole entertainment industry didn’t expect that little tiny white boy to get that far. Wizkid was supposed to end up like Samklef and Iyanya,” he wrote.

His opinion on the matter especially the insinuation that his once-buzzing career didn’t live up to expectations, offended Iyanya, that he cursed the man.

Quoting the tweet, Iyanya fumed: “You will end up like your father.”

In another post, the ‘Kukere’ singer lamented: “This space is toxic, y’all just wake up and undermine a creative’s years of work.”

Meanwhile, in another news…

Nigerian singer, Oluwabamishe Abioro, otherwise known as Young Duu, has broken his silence on his fall out with famous skit maker, Carter Efe.

Duu had on several occasions accused Carter Efe of cheating him off royalties after they worked together on the song, ‘Oyinmo’.

However, during a recent interview with Hip TV, the former Zeh Nation artiste disclosed that he did not make a dime from the now-buzzing song.

He said; “After dropping the song, I saw that Olamide posted about it, and I was happy. In fact, I received a lot of calls asking to be signed to their label. I felt like going with Carter Efe, and that was why when he called me for the collaboration, I responded.

“After recording and shooting the video for the song, I did not hear from him again. A few months passed before I reached out to him. He asked for my account number, claiming he would give me N500,000. To date, he has not given me the money, and he has not taken me to any show.”
