Since Thursday, social media has been buzzing with indications of yet another chapter of the seemingly unending beef between Wizkid and his rival, Davido.
According multiple online sources, it all started a few days ago when Wizkid decided to show up in his Surulere hood to visit a recently-opened restaurant belonging to his sister in the Shitta area of Surulere.
With Shitta already popular for its restaurants, many come from everywhere around Lagos for Amala Shitta, it means her sister faces some competition and the visit of the Starboy Music boss would surely to help push sales.
So off to Surulere went the “Come Closer” singer and everything seemed to have gone according to plan until a certain character known to many in Surulere as “Shoki Shitta”, a street boy, goes on a rant that was captured on video and found its way to social media.
Apparently miffed that Wizkid did not give them any money, Shoki Shitta was ranting in the video while surrounded by a number of like-minds, even saying Wizkid should stop representing Surulere as they lavished praise on Davido.
Speaking in Yoruba, he said OBO is the real man in the video.
Not willing to create a scene but ready to make Shoki Shitta realize who is boss in the hood, Wizkid, who reportedly claimed Shoki Shitta was trailing him along with a number of his gang, reported him to the dons of Surelere known as Baruwa Eleniyan and Igimu two of the people whose names he mentioned alongside Fashola and Tinubu in his hit song, “In My Bed”.
Sources close to Wizkid claimed he made it clear he reported Shoki Shitta was one of the most violent and troublesome guys in the hood where he grew up.
Just hours after Wizkid made a report, swift action was taken about Shoki Shitta and another video of him already beaten blue and black appeared online where he was being beaten and ordered to recant.
He didn’t only recant; he went on to praise Wizkid as the glorious child of Shitta among other adjectives.
And just when you think the matter has ended, Davido, apparently after watching the video, pledged his support for Shoki Shitta and asked him to call a certain Lati, a move that caused more than a few ripples on Twitter on Thursday.
Fans and observers of both stars have started heckling each other on Twitter, with many fans of Wizkid accusing Davido of being behind Shoki Shitta’s disrespect of Wizkid in the first video. According to them, that is why he urged Shoki Shitta to call Lati, perhaps for payment for job done.
Others have accused Davido of constantly thinking about Wizkid while fans of Davido have also hit back by accusing Wizkid of being violent and unleashing thugs on a young man all because he admired another person.
Refusing to become involved in what might spiral out of control, Wizkid only made a few posts on his Instastories. Along with images of peace and love, he wrote: “Starboy condone no violence! Peace love and blessings. One love.”
“Surulere Shitta Small London forever.
“Won’t kill for all of you to live in peace and love!
“Get money, focus on self and God bless you.”
