Wizkid Accused Of Song Theft

Published

on

Young fast rising Nigerian Hip-hop award winner Wizkid has been accused of song theft by a 300level English language student of Adekunle Ajasin University. She accused Wizkid of stealing the song  ‘pakurumo’ which she wrote and performed at a show in ado ekiti last year. She said

”I bought a copy in akure and right there, track four is my song. He even retained my title of the song, but tried his best to alter the ekiti dialect that gave the song a special appeal”

She however said she’s not surprised considering that his mentor (popularly believed to be Banky W) sampled a popular female us- based musician’s song that brought him fame.

She said “I may be poor, but I’ve sent the video to a lawyer and very soon, the guy will soon be exposed for who he is. I can’t believe Nigerians fawn after the guy knowing well that he is not that talented, forget the voice”

Nigerian actress, Linda Osifo has revealed that she was bullied during her younger years due to her tribal marks.

The 29-year-old actress said that she was in elementary school in Canada when she started getting teased about her tribal marks and she considered undergoing a medical procedure to remove it.

Osifo said that her peers made fun of her as they constantly asked her if she got scratched by lions in Africa.

Her post reads;

“It’s the Tribal Marks for me!

——————————-
Back in elementary school in Canada, I remember being made fun of about my tribal marks and being asked if I got scratched by lions in Africa. The teasing got so bad that I tried surgically to remove my tribal marks…..(Ouch ).
I felt it made me so ugly and weird from everyone else around me because I didn’t understand why I had it in the first place! Now that I’m all grown and wise, I’ve come to realize how beautiful & unique it sure makes me look. True beauty does not come from physical attributes…true beauty comes from what is within.
Here’s to the tribal mark gang”
