Wizkid Reveals He Charges 10 Million Naira for Music Collaborations

Wizkid AyoThings are sure getting intense for Wizkid this week.

After hinting that Wizkid collected N1.5 million for a feature on her hit single ‘Boogie Down’, singer Saeon went on radio to say that her comment could have been about anybody and not necessarily Wizkid (If you missed the details on BN read it here).

Now in an exclusive interview with NET Ng, Wizkid has revealed that he actually charges 10 million naira for collaborations and features. The Star Boy artiste said, “I charge N10M for collaboration but I don’t charge the people I love. I don’t pay for collaborations because I’m confident of myself.”

Also according to NET Ng, Wizkid did not deny taking payment for Saeon’s song, rather he laughed off the issue but not without reminding everyone that he was the one who made ‘Boogie down’ a hit song.

On Twitter, YBNL Nation’s Olamide has been quick to jump to Wizkid’s defense after a fan asked Olamide how much he paid for Wizkid to be featured on his 2011 hit single ‘Omo To Shan’ – to which Olamide replied, He did it for free .. Let my n**** b great”.

    Pride comets before a downfall. This child has been in the media for all the wrong reasons these days. I beginning to think that tweet he made about davido was an intentional beef, even though he claims he wasn’t throwing shade at anyone.

    This arrogant midget annoys me so much. Despite the fact that his music is sucking more than a cheap prostitute, he is still so full of himself! I predict his music career going down the d’banj route…he is stepping on so many toes and thinks he’s untouchable. Razz idiot.

    Frigging buffoon.
    “Uhhhhhhhhhh”
    “I get’e money”
    “I get’e plenty money”
    “Sisi shalewa”
    “Carooooo”
    These are the continual lyrics this midget spits from feature to feature. Is this really what some ppl are willing to pay 10m for? REALLY?
    either he is delusional or there are plenty retards in the industry

    I am sitting here wondering how repeaating the words
    “reverse baby pull over
    show me your particulars baby pull over”
    a gazillion times makes a song I swear artists these days cannot write listen to songs of yester years as early as 90s these songs actually had meanings and messages in them and the artists and their writers actually penned up stuff that made sense.

    I like Wizkids music but seriously, I don’t believe Wizkid is telling the truth. What Naija artist/record label has $60,000 plus (10M naira) to splurge on Wizkid??? There is a budget that the artist/record label has, why spend that much on 1 collaboration, when you can invest in something better, like promotions or even property. Just saying. #Heain’tworthit. #Bye
