Wizkid easy-going charm and ‘nice boy from the hood’ attitude makes him well-loved by many. But none of his fans was pleased when the singer labelled a fan as being broke after the fan corrected Wizzy’s grammatical error on a social media.
Not only did he disappoint his fans with his (momentary?) lack of tact, some of his colleagues in the industry did not like his comeback to the correction.
According to reports, J Martins blasted Wizkid on the matter in an interview with Vanguard.
“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”
