Nigeria’s famous singer, Ayodeji Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, attacked his colleague, Reekado Banks, on Thursday for attempting to release a new song in the ongoing # EndSars protest.
Trouble started when Reekado Banks tweeted that his new song, ‘Omo Ologo,’ featuring Wizkid, would be dropped on Friday and included the #EndSARS hashtag.
“Out of control, gbedu must drop. This one with my brother @wizkidayo “OMO OLOMO” midnight dropping Fire Still on the matter !!! #EndSWAT #EndSARS #EndPoliceBrutality,’’ his tweet read.

In response, Wizkid, who had postponed the release of his fourth studio album, ‘Made in Lagos’ because of the ongoing protests, blasted Reekado Banks and called him a clout chaser.
“Delete this dude ! Can’t believe you’re even doing this at a time like this. Old song ! #endsars fool!”
Wizkid has since deleted his tweet and response on Reekado’s post.
Wizkid’s remarks have attracted diverse opinions on Nigeria Twittersphere with many saying the singer should have reached out privately to his colleague rather than openly calling him out.
This is the second time a colleague would be publicly condescending towards Reekado Banks.
