Majority of Wizkid’s fans on social media were not too pleased when the singer referred to a fan as being broke after the fan corrected Wizzy’s grammar.
It seems not just fans, but other veterans in the industry were not impressed with Wizkid’s handling of the situation. In an interview with Vanguard, J. Martins reportedly said there was no place for people like Wizkid in the industry.
“I’m not taking any side, don’t mean no beef, no disrespect, and no hate but let the truth be told. I don’t believe because you feel you have a few change you didn’t have a few years ago and which you cannot guarantee having in a few years to come then you wake up and look at those people who have cheered you up, loved you, supported your music, bought your CD’s, prayed for you, just because you can lay your hands on some phone and you call them ‘poor’. Am not in and will never be in support of anyone who has such bad attitude.
“It needs to be corrected, we owe our fans the duty of being good examples that’s why they hold us in high esteem, that’s why you are a role model and if you know you cannot be a good role model you have no business in Music. You don’t know if it’s that person that might help you tomorrow, whoever does that should be checked.
“You have to decide why you are in the music industry. If you know you cannot be a role model then you have no business being there”
This prompted Wizkid to reply on Twitter, saying he was disappointed with J. Martins, especially as he was a veteran industry.
J. Martins later came out last night to deny the interview, saying it was a false report.
