Proofs that Davido and Wizkid are still enemies!

It has been a while we enjoyed the friendship between Nigerian top super stars Wizkid and Davido!
Yes there was a time however brief that the two young men made us proud not just with their tunes and voices but also with their friendship!
However, things turned sour between them and despite every effort, nothing has remained the same ever since!
Despite not knowing the real cause of the beef between these men, they have refused to mend the broken fence between them and relate like friends, brothers and colleagues.
In the last couple of weeks, several events have shown us that these stars are still at loggerheads and far from being friends!

Davido’s short trial:
With Davido losing a number if friends and facing persecution from the media and the police, his true friends and loyal colleagues reached out to him one way or the other to show their support and belief in him, but not a word from the camp of Wizkid on the matter!
Wizkid’s legendary performance in London: Only few celebrities did not celebrate the iconic performance of Wizkid at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Colleagues in the music and movie industry could not help but give kudos to Starboy for the achievement, no thumbs up from Davido in anyway!
Social media enemies; The gleam of hope we might have dwelled on would have been the fact that the stars follow each other on their social media platforms but even that is a mirage!
Felabration Performance: Now we have a feeling that Davido pulling out of Felabration could have more to do with personal reasons than the death of his friends. Re all that Wizkid was scheduled for the grand finale while Davido was scheduled for days before. Could Davido have felt slighted?
Well, all we want is for these fathers, to grow up, kiss, make up and face the future!

If Psquare should finally Breakup, Who will Excel more Individually ?

One of Africa’s excellent duo; Psquare just split up amidst a lot of controversies, and even though we will love them to be together, we still have to access the situation to determine if they will do better as Peter and Paul doing their thing individually.Over the years Psquare made major hits and rocked the entertainment scene within and outside the African continent.
The irony of their breakup is the lyrics of one of their song which says “Peter and Paul dem be one no be two” but this split up shows that they are individual humans and you can never predict the future!
News broke out days ago, after Peter who is now Mr. P made a public statement, about him terminating his agreement with Paul and Jude edges. The team had previously split, but after fans cried out, they got back together again. But now it’s obvious that they have split for good after the statement made by Mr. P where he cried out, saying his family has been threatened, and for the sake of peace, he has to back down.
They are not the first team to split in Nigeria, as we reminisce on Plantashion Boyz, KC Presh and co. Plantashion Boyz split up and 2Face Idibia has done well for himself, creating international music and made himself a legend and an Icon. Faze Alone also did well for himself, but 2Baba properly outshined them. Black Face happens to be the black sheep as his music did not only do badly, but he always makes people believe he has hatred for the widely accepted 2Face, by negative comments he makes about him, and that has further tarnished his image.
KC and Presh split up and KC is doing very well while Presh seems to be in a hole somewhere in Madagascar.
Now Psquare has split up, and we can’t help but wonder if they will both excel in the industry, or will one follow the Black Face route?
What are your thoughts ??

The Many things you dont know about Wizkid – His Life Motto, kids & BabyMamas, Luxury Cars, Net Worth (PICS)

Wizkid is believed to be the most popular and richest music star in the country. Starting his career at the age of 11, his net worth is now estimated to be about $11 million. His single “Holla at Your Boy” became an overnight hit and gave Wizkid a huge jumpstart for his future career. How did Wizkid manage to become so successful? Let’s take a look at Wizkid biography and his path to success.
Wizkid biography and net worth

From Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun to the “Starboy”

Wizkid or Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun was born in Surulere (16 July 1990). Surulere is a small residential part of Lagos, Nigeria and is known as a commercial district as well. Wizkid spent his childhood with twelve female siblings. His mother was Christian by faith, but his father practiced Islam. Wizkid and his family did not really spend a lot of time together. In recent interviews, Wizkid claimed that his father had three wives and it made for a not-so-cosy family scenario.
Young Wizkid
Since his early days, Wizkid has been addicted to music. The first collaborative album he released was with a group called the Glorious Five which was made up of him and his church friends. In 2009, Banky W’s record label Empire Mates Entertainment (E.M.E) signed a record deal with him. Shortly after that, his first single “Holla at Your Boy” from his first studio album Superstar (2011) was released.
After the song was greatly welcomed by music lovers, Wizkid recorded some more hits, such as: “Love My Baby”, “Don’t Dull”, “Oluwa Lo Ni”, “Pakurumo”. All these singles were recorded as a part of the Superstar album.
In 2013, Wizkid established his own recording studio “Starboy”. His second studio album – Ayo, was released shortly after that in September 2014. The self-titled album included such hits as: “On Top Your Matter”,”Joy”, “Bombay” “Jaiye Jaiye”, “One Question”.
Wizkid biography
Wizkid released a promotional single “Like This” on the 5th June 2016. Produced by Ghanaian producer DJ Henry X, the song was seen as a mix of Wizkid’s style and Drakes’ tempo. Soon after the release of his second studio album, Wizkid left E.M.E. But Wizkid did not plan to leave the limelight. On 1st March 2017, the Nigerian singer signed a multi-album deal with RCA Records.

Drake and Wizkid’s “One Dance”

2016 was a year of international recognition for Wizkid. His collaboration with Drake on the global hit, “One Dance” brought Wizkid to the top charts of 15 countries. It included the music charts of the United States, United Kingdom, and even Australia.
Wizkid still remains Nigeria’s first artist to appear on Billboard’s Twitter Last 24 hours chart. Wizkid and Drake’s afrobeat-mixed “One Dance” single, reached number-one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song was so popular that it stayed at the top spot for 10 weeks.
Despite the successful collaboration with Drake, Wizkid did not let up in his own music. He recorded some solo hits. Also, he worked together with several famous artists on hits, such as “The Matter” (with Maleek Berry), “Bad Girl” (with Jesse Jagz), “Girl” (with Bracket), “Fine Lady” (with Lynxxx), “Pull Over” (with KCee), “Slow Down” (with R2Bees).
Wizkid and son

Wizkid’s kids and baby mamas

Back in 2011, a lot of rumours about Wizkid’s fatherhood swept the media. It was disclosed that the singer was a father at the age of 21. Some news sources claimed that the mother of Wizkid’s kid was then-undergraduate student Sola Ogudugu.
In addition, both Sola and Wizkid’s families acknowledged the relationship between their children. When the story came up, neither Wizkid or anyone close to him confirmed that they had children together. Soon after that, Wizkid mentioned in several interviews that he did not have any children. He kept on denying that fact up until October 2013. This was when the singer uploaded a picture of him and his 2-year-old son to his Instagram account.

Boluwatife Balogun, Wizkid’s son, seemed to be about 2-years-old at the time. The photo confirmed the fact that Wizkid fathered a child back in 2011.
Then rumours came out the second time around, of another child with another baby mama. Again, the singer tried to deny but he soon admitted it. Now it is not a secret that the Starboy has two sons from two different beauties. The second gorgeous lady that birthed Wizkid’s second son is Binta Diamond.

5 Lessons Upcoming Artistes Can Learn From Wizkid (A Must Read)

The race to make it big in the entertainment is indeed an uphill task. Everyone wants to be a one-hit wonder and blow immediately just like Humble smith.
Several challenges abound for upcoming artistes especially for those without a record label. Dropping singles every month, collaborating with other artistes on joint tracks, performing for a meager pay at shows/concerts, appealing to streets and radio DJs to play your song, settling the bloggers who will publicize your brand, it’s really a long way to stardom.
Wizkid was in those shoes too even though he started early as Lil Prinz at the age of 11, he was in the category of ‘legendary hustlers’ as he was a studio rat together with Siri (remember him in Ojuelegba?) in the famous MoDogg studio.
However, Wizkid’s ascension from an upcoming artiste to arguably Africa’s best exploit to the world is extraordinary yet surprising.
Wizkid has broken and set new records in the industry. He’s the perfect example to follow. Virtually everyone wants to be like the Starboy. However, before you begin your journey, these are lessons to learn from the Baba Nla.
1. Work Hard
Wizkid’s first album is a must have for every upcoming artiste. No wonder it ranks high among the best albums in Nigeria. The album is detailed with the struggles Wizkid faced while he was an upcoming artiste, how people scorned him then but wanted to associate when he had made it.
Especially in Oluwa Loni and Wad Up, he revealed how he used to wear one shirt, one jean, hustling on the streets, hoping to meet a benefactor one day. He did free shows, went to studios before OJB took interest in him and he eventually laid the chorus on M.I’s track, “fast money, fast cars”.
As an upcoming artiste, never rest on your oars, greatness is not achieved in a day.
2. Networking
Relationships with people don’t happen immediately. You have to meet with people who are friends with them just to be close with them. Wizkid would definitely have networked his way to meeting OJB Jezreel.
OJB was one of the major producers back then due to his relationship with 2face and the whole of Kennis Music. Even now, Wizkid is still networking.
Skepta referred Wizkid to Drake, his relationship with TY Dollarsign granted him a feature with Future and they’re already on tour.
Upcoming artistes should learn to network with influential people in the entertainment industry. The industry is a wide place, there are a lot of people to network with. Make friends with the big players in the industry.
3. Leave Your Comfort Zone
The man would leave his family and cling unto his wife and they shall become one. Who remembers this saying? Well, one of the reasons why Wizkid is at the top of the game right now is because he decided it was time to establish his own franchise.
It was time to leave the local terrain. Wizkid might have never had that kind of international exposure if he was still under EME. Could have remained local like Davido. His decision to stand alone gave him the opportunity to surf the globe, trying to gain some international connect.
That’s why Kiss Daniel and Reekado Banks are finding it hard under their labels because they can’t make their decisions alone, kind of like been controlled.
4. Evolve Constantly
Wizkid never started out as an afro-beat artiste, he was actually doing some lovey-dovey songs and RnB. This was evident in his superstar album. Only few had a little afro-beat sounds. But after a period of self-discovery, he tapped into the world of afro-beat with Jaiye Jaiye and since assumed the post of the “New King Of Afro-Beat”.
Upcoming artistes should never fail to explore, don’t just streamline your music to only one genre, evolve, tweak your sound and let your fans feel your versatility.
5. Develop A Wonderful Relationship With The Fans
One thing that stood Wizkid out when he was an upcoming artiste was that he had a wonderful relationship with the fans. That has been helping him in his career. Maybe that’s why he’s the most followed Nigerian on Twitter.
He interacts well with them, preaches goodwill messages, makes them laughs(who remembers when he cooked watery indomie and posted it on Snapchat?), drops hints of songs to be released and he’s also generous.
So, upcoming artistes, it’s left to you. To make it in the entertainment industry is an uphill task. You have to be unique and extraordinary. You have to please the fans as they’re your customers, they’re the ones who will buy your songs and promote it as well.
Your music has to appeal to them. You need God as well as a good record label and management. Or else you can blow and eventually unblow like Ice Prince.
Apart from these reasons, What else do you think Upcoming Artistes Can Learn from Wizkid?

2017 Top 15 Ugliest Musicians In Nigeria – Male & Female (N0. 14 Is A Hit Maker)

We have beautiful and handsome musicians in our Music Industry!!

We are going to check on the top 15 most ugly musicians in Nigeria here on ngWASSUP But before starting, we’ll like you to know the saying that says ‘money transforms you’. Oh yes, that’s actually true, lol… If you check the throwback picture of 2face Idibia below, you will agree with us.

 Calm down…. We know what’s on your mind. When we also first stumbled on the picture we were like ‘really?! Is that our 2face?’. You can compare him with the picture below:
2face Idibia
Can you see the transformation? That’s what money can do. But 2face Idibia is a cute man (money or not) he only looked very rough & unkempt in his throwback picture with BlackFace above so he’s definitely not in the list. Many celebs go through thorough makeup before any outing thereby hiding their ugliness partially or totally like Tiwa Savage, some go through expensive facials and skin treatment, while some also go through plastic surgeries.
Today, we’ll be looking at the 15 ugliest musicians in Nigeria. We’ve carefully arraigned them accordingly from the beautiful to the ugliest most ugly musicians in Nigeria (if that’s correct lol). Let’s go through them below:
