Earlier today, Wizkid dropped the visuals to his hit collaboration”Come Closer” featuring Canadian singer/rapper, Drake.
However, Drake was missing from the video and fans were unimpressed. Many attributed Drake’s absence to Wizkid not being included in the video for Drake’s hit track last year, “One Dance” on which he was featured. Replying to a Twitter user this morning, Wizkid cleared the air explaining that he had a family emergency during the shoot for “One Dance” while Drake himself was on tour while they were shooting the video for “Come Closer”.
Wizkid has deleted this tweet. Also in interesting news, D’Banj is super-proud of Wizkid and he took to Twitter minutes again to speak up. See their exchange:
