Wizkid Shuts Down Collaboration Rumours With Davido
In a surprising turnabout, star act Wizkid has dashed hopes of many pro ‘Wizkid & Davido’ fans when he shut down any possibility of working with his perceived arch-rival Davido in the nearest future, in a recent interview with NET.ng
This is coming weeks after the ‘Jaiye Jaiye’ crooner revealed on DJ Abrantee’s radio show that he was open to working with Davido. In the interview with NET.ng following this, Wizkid said, “There is nothing like that”…. (Does this mean there is zero possibility of hearing both stars jump on a track or its just not time yet?)
Even though Davido has on numerous occasions expressed his willingness to work with Wizkid given the chance, one has to wonder what indeed is up between these two.
