Popular Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has attacked South African music producer, DJ Maphorisa, for giving credit to his colleagues, Wizkid and Burna Boy, for the success of Amapiano sound in Nigeria.
The drama started when Wizkid released his latest single ‘Bad to Me’ which infused the popular South African sound, Amapiano.
Reacting to this, a lady took to Twitter to state that Davido introduced Amapiano to the Nigerian music scene two years ago and now, Wizkid has adopted the sound.
“Davido brought Amapiano from South Africa two years ago and made it a successful genre in Africa and Beyond, Wizkid is now hopping on the same genre after davido made it a successful genre.
This is how many African artists have been benefiting from Davido’s success for over 12yrs”, she tweeted.
However, this didn’t sit well with DJ Maphorisa, who asserted that Wizkid and Burna Boy were the first Nigerian singers to jump on the sound.
“Kabza & Maphorisa was the first to put Wizkid n Burnaboy on a amapiano song Sponono dat was a historical moment 3 years ago, research before tweet
also it was the first time Wiz n Burna jumped on a same song together
let it sink in 🦅❤️”
The tweet caught the eye of Davido, who knocked DJ Maporisa for his statement, and accused him of hating him despite the fact that he has been nothing but good to him.
“You’ve never liked me y ? I’ve always been good to you …. Anyways ! AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY NOW!!!!!! Chu chu chu chu chu”, Davido wrote.
