BN Bytes: Wizkid’s on a Roll! New Music With Akon | Beef with Davido? | Twitter Bout With DRB Lasgidi’s Fresh L and More

Whew! Wizkid‘s name is on everyone’s lips now, from his rumored beef with “Omo Baba Olowo”, Davido to his Twitter bout with DRB Lasgidi’s Fresh L; from him touring overseas (he’s off to Dublin, Ireland soon) to his new music with his Record Label Exec, Akon.

So where do I start?

New Music With Akon!

Let’s kick this off on a positive note! Earlier during the week, Wizkid announced via Twitter that he’s steady at the studio trying to churn out more good music.

And, then, Akon endorsed his assertion with:

So I guess we’ll be hearing some new music from Wizkid very very soon and from the look of it, It’s going to be on an even more international scale than the “Pakurumo” crooner’s debut album singles.

“Omo Baba Olowo” Vs. Wizzy?

TheNETNG published an article earlier this week, talking about how 2 of Nigeria’s top Afro Pop artists, Davido and Wizkid are no longer in talking terms.

It is reported that a sort of “beef” has been spurned between the two artists and the source continues that the “beef” dates back to when D’Banj and Don Jazzy split. According to the article, artists had to choose camps and this resulted in a falling out between these two young stars.

“It all started with the news of D’banj signing Davido to his DB Records back in May 2012 – the news turned out to be false, but this obviously didn’t go down well with the ‘other camp.’ ‘You see Davido was very close to Don Jazzy and the Mo’hits squad before they parted with D’banj. When Jazzy heard Davido signed with D’banj, he wasn’t entirely happy’, a close friend of both camps tells NET.” 

“Don Jazzy is said to have immediately told Wande Coal (who mentors both Wizkid and Davido) to stop visiting Davido at his Lekki home. Davido, at the time, was still recording his debut album and had plans to collaborate with Wande and Wizzy on separate songs. When Davido contacted Wande Coal, the pop singer’s management asked for an exorbitant fee (reportedly N1.5m) for the collabo. Sources say Davido was keen to get it done, but his manager Asa Asika was having none of it.  This ‘sudden policy’ led to a war of words between Asika and Wande’s manager Nana. The collabo never happened. Wande and Davido stopped talking and calling each other.”

“Davido moved on to record the much talked about duet with Wizkid. But when he sent the instrumental to the EME team, Wizkid, sources say, told them he couldn’t work with Davido on the song, saying the beat wasn’t up to standard and he didn’t want to lower his brand. Little did Davido know that it was his fight with Wande that made him (Wizkid) immediately take sides.”

The article goes on to talk about how far each artist has come in the industry, gives a little more insight on the alleged “beef” and reports that Davido‘s debut album’s first track, “All Of You” was inspired by these events. To get all the details and read the full article, {click here}

Wizkid’s Bout with Fresh L (of DRB Lasgidi)

DRB Lasgidi (Fresh L, TeeZee & Boj)

DRB Lasgidi is a rising Afro Pop group (made up of two rappers, Fresh L & TeeZee, and a singer, Boj of “Cruella” & Ajebutter22‘s “Omo Pastor” fame) who made their first splash with their DJ Caise-produced debut single, “Toyin”. But, in the past few weeks, as these rising starlets have gained public acclaim, so also has the controversy surrounding the group. First, they had a disagreement with DJ Caise which lead to their debut music video being removed from Youtube and now, one of their members, Fresh L has had a falling out with EME’s starboy, Wizkid. It is alledged that what instigated the Twitter bout was Fresh L‘s tweet:

And, soon after, came Wizkid‘s replies:

So also, came Fresh L‘s rebuttal:

Then, Wizkid ended the issue with:

And, Fresh L ended his side of the story with:

The DRBLasgidi crew forge on though, announcing a possible collaboration with Dr.Sid via Twitter:

So, what is your take on Wizkid‘s reactions in the above situations, from the falling out with Davido, to the verbal bout with Fresh L?

Nonetheless, I’m sure I speak for both of us when I say – I can’t wait to hear new music from the starboy, Wizzy.

  • Brittle Paper September 12, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    Yawn.

  • Partyrider September 12, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    But wait,on a serious note I see nothing wrong with what the fresh L guy said.he merely stated his opinion,and he even stated that wizkid is ‘great and creative’ so why that voltron and wizkid body dey hurt?
    If wizkid cannot accept that some people will always put others before him and in truth that there are people better than him,then he needs to grow the hell up.
    I’m hearing of this fresh L guy and his guys for the first time sef..

    • Annie September 12, 2012 at 6:30 pm

      Exactly o,d guy actually praised wizkid.He never said wizkid was wack or something.I see wizzy is scared of competition,am actually surprised he’s jst gettin to knw someone is better dan him and reacting to it,dat’s something stale,dem plenty wey better pass am but we cnt deny d fact dat wiz is balling.

  • Concerned Native September 12, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    okay lets be real, everyone need drama for their life, plus wizkid indirectly just helped these guys names be known, cuz until now, never heard of DRB Lasigid, talk of fresh L, so this has actually helped their careers. but wizzy please dont be so fast to anger bro..

    • Adannaya September 12, 2012 at 7:23 pm

      exactly! I’ve been listening to their songs all day. they’re really good though! especially the boj guy

  • ruby September 12, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    wizchild head don dey big now….BankyW should call him to order…

  • lol September 12, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    dis is wat happen wen da bcm famos, banky needs 2 ground dis dude well his obviously not using his head anymore..fresh L has a rite 2 his opinion(boj’s voice omg!!)and besides he didn’t mean any harm..i honestly expected more from wizkid not bcuz of him but bcuz of banky

  • Emeka September 12, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    wizboy why the rant the guy said his mind and in the most modest way i have heard he was very objective and did not insult you in any way…remember pride goes before a fall watch it boy….

  • Lizie September 12, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    Even if he wizkid introduced fresh L wif one twitter,no be somebody brought u fame too,wizzy te jeje o.

  • Ayo September 12, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    Whizkid really messed up on an epic scale. He needs his head out of the cloud. There is enough talent out there better than him&still trying to cut it. He should consider himself fortunate. Is Akon not about to “make him popular” with just one recording?? What a bum! I love his music but this attitude is not acceptable. He needs to apologize to the DRB guy!

  • Temi September 12, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    to be honest fresh L didn’t say anything bad. Wiz need to calm down and stop over-reacting he saying he made them famous with one tweet was rubbish, he needs to apologise cos people went on abusing these guys on twitter for no reason. Wizkid i love you but be calm before things fall outta place.

  • Jess September 12, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    That icriticise person is a flaming idiot. I mean look at how he relayed Fresh L’s tweet! Regardless Wizkid should have found out what the real tweet was before insulting the boy and his relations. Ps Boj is miles better(musically) than Wizkid soo..

  • Yetty September 12, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    *Moving on *

  • olorile September 12, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    which one is all this “nigga this ” nigga that” that they are even using sef Wizkid turned the thing to something bigger than it shud have been! haba and please niggas are African Americans not Africans geez!

    • Sansarai September 13, 2012 at 2:55 am

      Please help me tell him o! I don’t know which annoyed me more…the way he was just cussing and throwing about the “n word” or his general immaturity. The little rugrat needs to eat some humble pie, preferably a whole one not just a slice…

  • Peaches September 13, 2012 at 1:10 am

    Fresh L, well said lovely and mature response …. lovely song and proud of u. BOJ is actually better that wizkid, with an interesting voice and I speak for everyone here with me. Plus ur ‘toyin’ song is pretty awesome Goodluck :)

    • olawunmi September 20, 2012 at 8:17 pm

      who is d – is beta than wizkid? iro nla lol

  • kenny September 13, 2012 at 3:15 am

    this is why wizkid should stay in school…because the guy even praised him so where has he gone wrong,wizkid is just foolish he only went to America once and everything is nigger this nigger that……f- this f- that,aba kilode!

  • adesoye September 13, 2012 at 4:12 am

    Wat you all dont know is that the freshL himself tweeted about wiz blocking him on twitter in 2010 so I think the beef started since and dis lil issue escalated things cos it’s nt today pple compare wizkid with odas and he does nt reply especially davido who they compare him to often.so pls everybody slip-up at times and need people to put dem back in line so let him be cos truly he doesn’t act like dis.

    P.S I won’t lie na because It was wiz dat was why the backlash was nt dat intense no oda artiste will do that and nt regret.that said E.M.E sud put a leash on him.gracias

  • http://labelwhorre.wix.com/piecesly September 13, 2012 at 4:25 am

    i swear…wiz has been listening to too much 2pac lol….”hit em up”….Fresh L did say Boj was UNIQUE…hinting that wizkid was a mass produced product lol….he gave a back-handed compliment…either way wizkid needs to understand that he’s not the only talented youth in Nigeria.

  • the effing truth September 13, 2012 at 4:30 am

    dj caise is really mean…simple!!!!! he’s bad news bears.

  • KingsQueen September 15, 2012 at 1:58 am

    way too petty *strolls right along*

  • Toyin September 15, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    This is what happens when money and fame don blow up. These are still young artists, I’m not a fan of neither, I will dance to their music but don’t think their talent is so impressive. Wizkid, can barely sing live. Don’t get me started with Davido, omo baba lowo attitude. So, both of them need to focus on improving themselves. And, naija boys think using the “N” word shows how cool they are. They all need to get offline and learn from people like 2face, 9ice and P square about humility.

  • opeyemi September 16, 2012 at 9:55 am

    my guy wizkid keep on rolling stop d insult nd face ur music,pay no mind 2 dose who talk behind u it simply means u re 2 step ahead of dem.
