Yesterday, Davido received news that apart from his Best African Act Award at the 2017 MTV EMAs that he also bagged the award for the Best Worldwide Act, and he went completely apeshit.
Posting on his Instagram, the If singer dissed the 2017 All Africa Music Awards(AFRIMA).
“Omo make those one keep their awards, that award, that one wey dey peel. Even the ones wey I collect [from them before] go don peel finish,” Davido said on the Instagram video, bragging about MTV EMAs award.
He continued, “See, my name is David. You cannot play me and get away with it. Boom! 2018, I am coming for your head.”
While he did not mention names, folks already knew who the second comment was directed at: his arch rival, Wizkid, who beat him and others at the 2017 AFRIMA to win not just the Best Male in West Africa, but also the Artiste of the Year and Song of the Year categories.
And this has stirred heated reactions from folks on social media who find Davido’s comments distasteful. While some reminded him that Wizkid won the MTV EMA’s Best Worldwide Act last year and never bragged about it, accolades he packed at the 2017 Billboard, BET and MOBO Awards this year; others simply dismissed Davido as being childish.
See the reactions:
- misspotofgold_: “Too childish ?
- _adekunleraymond: “the main reason why wizkid will always be ahead ??”
- thisistgf: “You see why for some reasons I don’t like this boy.”
- bellaafomboo: “When wizkid won international award, he was calm.”
Well, 2018 is sure going to be an interesting year!
