The beauty of fame and a stable financial institute is exciting enough, but sometimes impacts hatred, competition and rivalry among top stars.
This has often impacted the lives of top Nigerian afrobeat giants who have fallen victim to feuds amongst themselves. They fought with each other via their pride and created memories that are discussed daily.
Karoloaded points out that some of those big names involved in the heated feud have reconciled and assuaged their grudges while some are still filled with bitterness.
In detail, we will describe and discuss the great Nigerian Afrobeat names who have fought with each other.
Beefs and feuds that transpired between the Afrobeat giants at the Nigeria Music Firm.
Davido and Wizkid
The two Afrobeat maestros and singers who have thrived and earned their place at the top have quite tolerated the longest feud in the Nigerian music industry as a whole.
Despite once being referred to as close friends, Wizkid and Davido are the current biggest rivals in the Afrobeat genre.
Their feud began several years ago when their fame broke. By dishing out hit songs consistently and nearly averaging individual hits and accolades, Wizkid and Davido have earned enticing fanbases. This is where their feud took root.
Wizkid who would go on to dominate the Afrobeat genre and Davido who would also delight millions with his beat in the near future tried to keep their bond but their heavy fan base and drive drew them to rivalry.
Soon after their grudges developed, they couldn’t hold back and clashed online. This inspired their fans to start a daily rivalry and argument which has proven to be limitless and compatible to this day.
However, Davido and Wizkid described an upbeat reconciliation after what seemed like a decade of feuding between the two Afrobeat Giants. They were spotted in the club kissing passionately. In several interviews, the two have also sworn that they don’t get on each other’s nerves. In reality, Davido and Wizkid are in a serious feud instigated daily by their fans.
Olamide and Don Jazzy
The Nigerian music firm since its heyday imbued with vast dynamism has recorded countless feuds between big stars who fought for their pride.
Don Jazzy and Olamide, one of the two biggest record label magnates of the Nigerian music company, undoubtedly fall into this category.
Mavin Record label CEO Don Jazzy and YBNL CEO Olamide clashed over the annual Headies music award in 2015.
The two kings had pushed Reekado Banks and Lil Kesh to the highest level with their love of record label management. Thanks to the impact they unfolded on them, Reekado Banks and Lil Kesh were the most dominant new acts in the Nigerian music firm.
Without hesitation, they were nominated in the Next Rated Artist of the Year category. Reekado Banks became the favorite to clinch it and won it in style.
The “Pon Pon” crooner didn’t quite compromise with their judgment and publicly confronted the organizers of the Headies Musical Awards, including Don Jazzy.
He felt Lil Kesh deserved the award and smashed the microphone on the floor as he fled the stage in disdain.
Don Jazzy, who was not happy with his gesture, urged him to come and claim the prize if he needed it.
However, reports have confirmed that the two have assuaged their grudges.
Seyi Shay and Tiwa Savage
The story of the feud in the Nigerian Afrobeat program has also impacted the lives of two prominent Nigerian women, Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay.
Seyi Shay, who for so long accused Afrobeat queen Tiwa Savage of an alleged song plagiarism, has been caught in an intense version of Tiwa Savage aggrieved after trying to tolerate hypocrisy in a saloon they have unwittingly bound for beauty.
Sey Shay; before the feud with the “My Darling” crooner heated up, scrolled the need for concerned citizens to be convinced that Tiwa Savage stole his songs and released them.
As the saga speculated, Tiwa Savage never said a single word. However, Karma would slam Seyi Shey in the future after attempting hypocrisy.
As the two mistakenly regrouped at the same Lagos State Saloon, Seyi Shey attempted to kiss Tiwa Savage ignoring what she had once accused her of.
This angered Tiwa Savage who gave her a stern warning to stay away from her status.
In the viral video, the two were seen tolerating a clash of tongues as their team re-trained possible physical approaches.
Davido and Burnaboy
This is recognized as one of the latest feuds that have gained traction in the Afrobeat genre agenda. Davido and Burna Boy are currently not on good terms.
It all erupted at the end of 2020 when the Burna Boy lights got hotter. He has become one of the best Afrobeat maestros who stand out for their musical qualities. His musical qualities have infused and he has already gained worldwide recognition after his hit album ‘The African Giant’ earned a nomination at the annual musical Grammy Awards which he lost to African queen, Angelique Kidjo.
In reality, Burna Boy was already indoctrinated by the sight of his results. He already believed in the fact that he is among the top three music stars in Africa and Nigeria specifically.
Davido, who did not acknowledge this, spanked his anger after taking his social media account and tweeting a photoshopped picture of him and Wizkid. He captioned it via his point of view as the two greatest of all time.
He followed all social media platforms as fans cheered on their favorites with plenty of facts. This angered Burna Boy who publicly called out Davido with wildly composed punchlines that would become the advent of their current beef.
Referring to Davido, he took to his Snapchat story and explained that Davido is like a talentless football player but he will play anyway because his father bought the football team.
“You can’t play football, everyone knows you can’t play football, and you’re a hindrance to the team, but your dad bought the football team…”
Their beef and grudges reached the highest level after that. Secrets were leaked and we could find out that Burna Boy used to write songs for Davido as many sources claim.
They even proved their grudges with each other by engaging in a brutal fight in Ghana and releasing dissident songs against each other.
