Nigerian Instagram comedian, Lord Lamba has clashed with his colleague, Carter Efe over a comment he made about content creation aka skit-making.
Carter, a comedian turned singer took to his Instagram page and asserted that skit-making is dead, a controversial statement similar to that of music star, Wizkid who said rap is dead.
In response, Lamba engaged the Machala crooner to do a comparison of how much is in their bank accounts to know whether the industry is truly dead.
However, Efe referred to him as a broke boy and bragged about having two hit songs which pay him more than skit-making.
Read the exchange:
Meanwhile, US-based Nigerian rapper, Joshua Balogun, popularly known as NBA Geeboy recently tackled Afrobeats superstar during a music show.
Geeboy was performing his viral song ‘Your Stew’ on stage when he decided to use the opportunity to openly diss Wizkid.
The internet star caused the audience to erupt in shocked screams when he said; F**k Wizkid.
The Hip Hop artiste who was only wearing briefs then carried the microphone to fans in the audience and made them to repeat the same Wizkid diss.
After getting people in the crowd to say; “F**k Wizkid, he jumped back on stage and continued his performance.
Wizkid’s comment about rappers generated controversy but Vector said the Grammy winner Wizkid should not be only one getting heat.
It may be recalled that during an interview with 10 magazine, Wizkid said rap is dead while arguing in favour of Afrobeats dominating the Hip Hop genre.
According to the Starboy Entertainment founder, the Hip Hop artistes mostly rap on the same beats, and they have similar styles.
Wizkid also took to social media and said Nigerian rappers are non-rappers who lack development and he went on to list the South Africa’s Nasty C and Ghana’s Sarkodie as the ‘real rappers’ in Africa.
Subsequently, Wizkid received backlash mostly from Nigerian rap artistes who either responded to him online or released diss raps.
