Wizkid seems to attract this sort of squabbles as fast as a horse can trot. And this new year, it seems the drama is starting a bit too early. Although; in all fairness, Skales started today’s outburst online, we are certain something precipitated this even though we can’t say for now what exactly did.
Skales had gone on microblogging site –Twitter– to ask his followers which artiste they would want on his “Man Of The Year” debut album, and he got a host of responses. But one follower particularly wanted Wizkid on the Project to which Skales replied saying;
“@Wizkidayo doesn’t have my time.”
Wizkid initially took things lightly as he went “dude!! Lol my home is ur home anytime g! U know I’m here whenever u’re ready! Blood still!”
Skales, obviously not buying any of that went;
“no bad blood bro we family but show support to ur own for real it’s not by tweeting or bare words….”
In the ensuing back and forth, Skales went on to claim Wiz had “stolen his beat” and made “Azonto” off it, a claim Legendurybeatz negated with the tweet “The Azonto beat was fully paid for by @Wizkidayo I don’t know what @Youngskales is talking about..I created that beat!!!!”
Skales also claims to have written “Superstar”, a Wizkid hit song, even though there’s nothing to substantiate this statement. Plus the fact that there are doubts on this seeing as Skales couldn’t replicate that same level of genius in his personal career in the erstwhile label (when he could that much for Wiz).
This whole outburst obviously triggered Wiz who then went on to state that he deserves more from Skales given how much he has supported the latter’s career.
“I know you are looking for publicity for your new album so I won’t say nothing anymore… I went on tour even with u even when nobody called u for the show! Nd split my money with the whole team! Wow! Life is crazy my people! Ur enemies are closer than you think! Since u start ur career u never fit drop one album u say u write me song!”
Wiz went completely berserk in the spat. He dropped the bomb when he accused Skales of “wearing fake chains nd begging hoes for money!” “I’ll help finish ur dead career!”, he tweeted. He rounded off saying: “Even when the label wanted to drop ur ass cos u didn’t make one naira for 3years! I was there!”
