Iyanya fumes over comparison with Wizkid

Nigerian musician Iyanya has responded to a social media user who dismissed his artistic talents while explaining why Wizkid is “hated” in the music industry.

A social media user with the X handle @itzbasito wrote: “Wizkid’s only crime is surpassing the benchmark set for him and becoming the benchmark himself,” to which another user @Xperience_Snr responded, stating that Wizkid is expected to end up like Iyanya and Samklef.

The X user wrote, “Same reason Drake gets so much hate. The entire entertainment world did not anticipate that little, tiny white guy to make it this far.

“Wizkid was supposed to end up like Samklef and Iyanya.”

His argument didn’t sit well with Iyanya, especially the insinuation that his once-buzzing career didn’t live up to expectations.

Quoting the tweet, Iyanya fumed: “You will end up like your father.”

In another post, the singer lamented: “This space is toxic, y’all just wake up and undermine a creative’s years of work.”
