In news that might Make Your Eyes Roll, Wizkid revealed that he didn’t know Davido was signed to RCA. Even as both artists continue to soar on global frontiers Wizkid and Davido’s implied rivalry remains a statement of fact and machinations of their own cult followings. The only problem is, despite multiple claims of beef by media outlets over the years, there has neither been a public confrontation or affirmation of bad blood by either Davido or Wizkid.
In a recent interview with DJ Abrantee‘s Afrobeats Show on UK radio station, Capital Xtra. During a round of questions about his new deal with Sony via RCA, Davido’s name came up during the discussion and in response Wizkid quipped “He’s signed to RCA? I didn’t know that”.
Davido who originally signed to RCA’s parent label, Sony earlier last year, was also unveiled to have pitched his tent at RCA towards the end of the year. While it is possible that Wiz is just genuinely oblivious of things happening outside of his world, it seems unlikely someone at RCA would have failed to mention the Starboy that another Nigerian was signed to the same label. More or less a Davido who isn’t the shyest about sharing all the details of his career progress on social media.
Do you think it is a shade?
