Words of Ehimenim Agweh
As Davido drops hit song after hit song and Wizkid prepares for the release of his SFTOS album, the air should be clear and buzzing with excitement for the two of them. But Wizkid decided to stick his hands into a hornet’s nest and get Davido stung.
In what can be described as one of the most direct hits Wizkid has delivered in his light switch feud with Davido, he made fun of Davido’s voice as he referenced a line in the latter’s new song with Olamide. No names were called but the Twitterverse knew who the punch was directed to and another quarrel started online.
My people make una remember say Yankee passport no be baba blue, e no dey cure frog voice. 🐸🐸

For a whole day, Wizkid and Davido trended side by side, which begs the question: what does Wizkid mean by this?
With SFTOS on its way, Wizkid’s team must be doing everything possible to keep the world on its toes waiting for the album. However, in the days before the Twitter sub, chatter on Wizkid had been minimal. Davido’s name was more prominent in conversations online. But once the sub hit, Wizkid shot up and anticipation for SFTOS went up with it. And it stayed that way until the next morning.
Even though Wizkid has acknowledged Davido’s position as an industry leader, some things still don’t add up about his sudden emergence from the deep just days before his album is set to drop.
