Video: Wizkid is using Davido’s absence to shine – Nigerian man
A Nigerian man known as Ola has said that Afrobeats star, Wizkid is taking advantage of his colleague, Davido’s social media hiatus.
He said that Wizkid has become more active online because Omo Baba Olowo decided to stay off social media since his son’s death last October.
According to him, Machala has been using Davido’s absence to shine and dominate the internet space.
His comment follows frequent posts by Wizkid, wherein he shows his new fleet of cars and also gives fans an insight into his social activities.
In a video circulating online, Ola said that people should be patient as the real pace setter will switch things up when he returns.
Interestingly, it led to a debate online as both fanbases clashed over differences in opinion.

Meanwhile, Daddy Freeze recently said Wizkid is almost on the same level with late Afrobeats legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
The media personality stated this in a video shared on his social media page while wading into the feud between Wiz and rappers in the industry.
It may be recalled that during an interview with 10 magazine the “Essence” crooner 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.
Wiz also said Nigerian rappers as non-rappers who lack development and 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.
In reaction to the clash, Freeze opined that for Wizkid to have made that comment, it comes from a place of objectivity soaked in experience.
He said the Ojuelegba crooner has achieved a lot and should be taken seriously whenever he gives constructive criticisms.
The OAP who aid he is backing Big Wiz further said only a handful of artistes in Nigeria can boast of the achievements attached to Wizkid’s name in the music industry.
Daddy Freeze said; “When it comes to music in Nigeria as a whole, Wizkid is almost on the level of Fela then. What he (Wizkid) has been able to do, not many people can achieve it, when he says something, hear him out, there is one thing in me that makes me different from many people I might not like you but if you speak the truth I will support you…
The truth is the truth and it will set you free. When you see the truth and started ignoring the truth because of the person carrying the truth we become like Nigerian politicians, all of them are the same but they will make one look worse than the rest of them.”
