      Why do u hate to say it? So because he made a blunder, he shouldnt prosper? Its not as if linda herself was blameless in the matter. Regardless, u shouldnt find it so hard to celebrate the young man because of that. Be holding grudges for something wey no dey pay ur bills.

    Isn’t it just amazing how every step of WizKid’s progress just gets everybody praising and thanking God? How won’t he have a multiplication of blessings? His songs are filled with such a strong attitude of gratitude to God. How wont he keep going further? Some people praised God today only after hearing this gist. With such effect of course he can only climb higher. We Thank God for everything.

    With all of these, a certain mumu called Osagz will say Davido is more successful career-wise than Wizkid?

    Good for him! I wonder where Linda Ikeji and that her mouth is at. She said that she was going to destory his career but see where he is now. All Linda is good at is exploiting people for money as that’s how she males her living.

    Linda has a right to be upset. Wizkid abused her father and mother and entire family. That’s not right under any condition, especially because Wizkid has always given the impression that he holds his parents, and especially his grand mother dearly….
    Yet he can say those vile things publicly about another persons parents and siblings just because he was angry,
    After cooling down, he still did not try to make amends, it was only after she involved the police, and he saw that the publicity might affect his image on a global scene, that was when he apologized.

    Yes, Linda made a mistake by mentioning the spoiling career part, but she should not be demonized for it. Her whole family was insulted, and for what??? Was it a malicious lie she made up against him? She simply reported facts.
    In my opinion, she was the victim in that their battle, and I believe Wizkid still owes her a public non police induced apology.

      Linda is notorious among Nigerian celebrities for exploiting their private matters for the sole purpose of making money. She is always writing negative things about them and matters she obviously has no right sticking her nose into. How Wizkid handled it was in poor taste but when someone keeps doing something that they have already been warned against doing, all respect is thrown out the window. At her age,one would think she will know when to stop when she’s been told to. And with her saying that she was going to destroy his career shows how immature and ridiculous she is. Goodness, the lady needs to quit it when people tell her to.

  29. Let her continue to be victim.

    May 12, 2016 at 2:00 pm

    Keep waiting for the apologies for someone that makes money on reporting negative gossips for a living destroying the image of a lot of people,wizkid tried to reach out to her about constant negative gossip about him,but she refused,but during the elections she agreed to work for fantastically corrupt politicians on her blog because of money.When it was obvious to him that she was out to destroy his reputation and career,he was left with no choice than to give Fire fo fire,that’s the language the Hitlers of this world understands,no appeasement would have mattered to Hitler,only massive superior fire power did.

    May 13, 2016 at 7:13 am

    She was trying to play God,and threatened to drag him down,those are powerful words out of experience.She failed to know the main stream media and almost all major print outlet are for the west,and we have the largest readership,We will never allow are ruin our son.God is with him also.

  31. There's always a time to stop

    May 13, 2016 at 8:50 am

    She went too far,refused to understand the dynamics of the workings of a multicultural society,threatening to destroy his career and saying things like the car was on rent and so on,actually belittled Her sense of judgment with her age,only portrays her in bad light.
