Wizkid Officially Apologizes To Linda Ikeji

wizkid

In the seemingly unending beef between Linda Ikeji and Wizkid, peace has finally surfaced as Wizkid and Linda settle their quarrel in the police station

Linda Ikeji released a statement on Monday concerning what took place in their meeting with the Lagos state commissioners’ office. The blogger has earlier on reported Wizkid to the police after he threatened to do her harm publicly.

ALSO READ: Kemi Omololu Olunloyo Calls Out Olamide In An Interview

Read her statemen below:

So, I am going to write about this Wizkid matter for the very last time. Anything else after this will no longer concern me. So Wizkid and I met with the Commissioner of Police today and when the Commissioner asked me what I wanted them to do with the case… I told him that I wanted peace. And the reason why I insisted on peace and not to drag the matter further i.e go to court, is because Wizkid and his lawyers have been apologizing since Friday, up until today!

I spoke with Wizkid through his lawyer on Friday April 15th where he tendered an apology to me and said he wasn’t a violent person, that he didn’t mean what he said, that it was just an emotional outburst. And then he asked for forgiveness. Please continue…

But despite forgiving him, he still had to show up at the Police HQ to officially apologize and write an undertaken which he did today.

I see a lot of negativity has come out of this case with Wizkid – with many folks bashing me for reporting a threat on my person. But here’s my consolation and why I am glad this happened. I promise you, especially the ladies, Wizkid will never threaten you with harm again. At least not in public. I believe I am the last bus stop. He will think twice before threatening another human being again on social media. A police file has been opened for him, and he has been cautioned. The day he threatens another human being again with harm, then…

Having said that, I turned down taking a photo with him and the police commissioner this afternoon. One of his people took a pic of him and the commissioner with me in it and my people insisted they delete it. Not because I haven’t forgiven him, I just don’t need the extra drama.

I wish Wizkid all the best and will continue to celebrate him.

God bless us all.

And it is hope that this will really be the end of it.

Why Linda IkeJi Reported Wizkid To The Police

mtv personality of the year award

Linda Ikeji, one of Nigeria’s top bloggers reported Wizkid to the police after he publicly threatened to harm her. In a blog post, Linda Ikeji gave reasons why she resorted to that channel in dealing with the issue

On Sunday, Linda Ikeji confirmed that she indeed reported Wizkid to the authorities. In her post, she explained why she had to take it that far. Read below:

I’m sure many of you have read that the police is now involved in my issue with Wizkid. Yes, I reported his public threat to me two Sundays ago to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police and I want to explain why I did it! Please pay attention and keep an open mind.

I’ve read a lot online from people saying I don’t like Wizkid. Even Wizkid himself thinks I don’t like him. Why he or anyone would think so is puzzling to me to be honest. Apart from his achievements after he started insulting me online a few weeks ago…everything else, every success Wizkid has recorded in the last 3/4 years is on LIB. All the awards, all the record breaking feats, his sold out concerts, his foreign magazine features, and collaborations, everything that has built him up to the young man he is today is on LIB. Please verify! Search my blog. Please continue…

I was a huge Wizkid fan. The only song I danced harder to than his ‘Dance For Me’ track was Fuse ODG’s ‘Antenna and Kiss Daniel & DJ Shabzy’s Raba. So, no, I had no dislike for Wizkid. But about a year ago, I noticed his indirect snide remarks at me…and when some other music star beefed with me, Wizkid showed his support and made disrespectful comments. That was when I noticed he had issues with me… but that didn’t stop me from writing about him and celebrating him.

Now to the issue at hand. When I reported that he was served quit notice at his Lekki home, I stated fact and I didn’t write it out of malice. It’s not everyday you get exclusive stories…and I’m sure any other blogger who got the story first would also have published it. So, there was no beef, I was just doing my job. A day or so after I wrote this story, Wizkid went on my instagram page to call me names and lied that I slept with some director of his…which I have said before is 1000% lies! But the insult and lies is not why the police is now involved.

Here’s the thing; You can insult me, insult my family, call me any names you like, even lie that I slept with your forefathers…but don’t threaten me. If you threaten me, I will act! I read people online saying that I reported to the police because I am scared of Wizkid. No, my darlings, I am not afraid of Wizkid. Though I do not take his threats lightly. I went to the authorities for two reasons…and please young boys of our generation, pay attention to what I am about to write below.

You see, violence against women and threat of violence against women is not okay. Threatening harm to someone in a public space is a criminal act in every country of the world, including Nigeria. I bet some of you didn’t know that, yeah? You can not publicly threaten someone with harm. You will only get away with it if your victim doesn’t report to the authorities. If they do, you will have a case with the police and I promise you, the police take these things seriously.

I reported this case to the authorities because I want our young men to know this is not okay. You should not raise your hands on a woman. You shouldn’t even threaten to raise your hands on a woman. Wizkid wrote that he would send his 16 year old cousin to beat the shit out of me. Letting Wizkid get away with it is basically telling our young men that this is okay…and it’s not! After Wizkid made the threat to me, I saw a lot of teen boys hailing and applauding him. To them, this was okay. If their idol can threaten a woman with harm, and use derogatory words, they also can do it…and that’s how the circle of abuse of women continues. Women being called ‘smelly pussy’ trended online for a day or two! Little boys were happy to use the words. Sad!

It is appalling to me that anyone, especially women, would cheer Wizkid on. When he wrote RIP Linda, I saw a few young girls write same, laughing. This is not a laughing matter. It doesn’t matter whether you like me or not! This is not about Linda Ikeji. This is about abuse of women which has eaten deep into our society, so deep that it has now been accepted as normal. Men do it all the time and get away with it. So many women are battered by their husbands and they refuse to speak up because of the stigma. They refuse to seek help because they are afraid of what people will say. I am sorry, I am not one of those women. I refuse to be victimized. And as long as I have my voice and my platform, I will speak up.

We women have to come together to lend a strong voice to the plight of women in our continent. When we see a woman being physically and mentally abused, let’s act. Let’s speak up. Let’s not laugh and say she deserves it. If we continue to keep quiet, the circle of abuse will continue. And one day, You, yes You, will find yourself in the receiving end of a thundering slap, followed by heavy blows. If not you, then maybe your daughter? Let’s condemn violence and threat of violence against women! This is not acceptable!

Young men like Wizkid, a father of two young boys himself, should never advocate violence against women. One day, he will have a daughter, how would he feel if another male threatens to put hands on her or even calls her a hoe? I can’t count how many times Wizkid called me a hoe in his rant against me. That’s what boys do. When they get into a fight with a woman, they try to slut-shame her. Smelly pussy, hoe, ashawo etc. You call a woman, who gave another young woman, whose real name she doesn’t even know N500,000 just because she said she would rather work by carrying cement than prostitute herself, that’s the person you call a hoe? When your mind is so warped you can’t differentiate between a woman and a hoe, then this is what happens. Except you drive to Sanusi Fanfuwa at 2am to pick up a prostitute, who proudly describes herself as one, then you shouldn’t call any woman a hoe.

Even Tupac who was a well known thug could differentiate between the types of women he dealt with. When asked in an interview why he called women bitches, he said people shouldn’t confuse things, that he wouldn’t address a mother or a sister the way he would address a bitch, that the bitches were the ones he dealt with in the clubs who behaved like one. He reiterated that he respected women!

In more civilized countries, Wizkid would have lost his endorsements and spent the next year or so apologizing and being in the fore-front of promoting anti-violence crusades against women. It took Chris Brown years to get back on his feet after his assault on a woman. Up till today, he doesn’t have any major endorsements and some countries still deny him entrance into their country i.e Australia for something he did 7 years ago. Yes, violence against women is serious!

And there’s the case of incitement. When you have power and influence, you have to be careful what you say in public. Because you have such power, something you say can influence your followers. A fan can commit acts that even you may not support or might not even condone. But because it came out of your mouth, they think you mean it. So it is irresponsible to say things that might be inciteful. In Law, you can be held responsible when people act based on what you said in public. Tupac was charged to court and indicted after some thugs killed a police officer. The thugs went to court and mentioned that their idol encouraged violence against LA police officers in a song where he said ‘Drop a cop’. So, we folks with some measure of influence should be more careful with our utterances. People are watching and listening!

The second reason I filed a police report is to encourage other women in similar situations to do same. My dear ladies, if a man threatens to puts hands on you, and you feel the threat is real, report to the authorities. Don’t wait until he does it. What if you don’t survive it? If he’s picked up and may be charged to court (yes, you can be charged to court for making threats…it’s a misdemeanor with a prison sentence), then he will think twice before making threats against you in the future or any other woman for that matter. I went as far as I did for me and for other women.

This is to pass a strong message to our young men that these kinds of behaviour towards women will not be tolerated. Should not be tolerated. If you assault or even threaten to assault a woman, the law will come after you if she chooses not to be silent. Women, don’t be silent. Let’s break the circle. For your sake, for my sake, for the sake of our daughters, grand daughters, great grand daughters and all other women that will follow them. And that’s really all I have to say in the matter.

Thank you guys for reading And to Wizkid fans, please be rest assured that I wish him all the best in life. He will continue to grow from strength to strength (as long as he doesn’t endorse violence against women) and his light will never diminish. God brought him to this level and will continue to keep him. I have nothing but love for his craft and hope that one day, we will put this behind us.

God bless him, me, you and everyone else in the world. Cheers.

Wizkid -The First Nigerian To Feature On Billboards Chart

billboard

Wizkid features in the Billboards chart in Twitter last 24hrs trending music chart. This will make him the first Nigerian to ever be featured on the Billboard chart.

Wizkid was featured in the Billboards chart in Twitter last 24 hours music chart. The feature was complimentary of his Drake feature on the song “One dance

Drake dropped two singles, ‘Pop style’ featuring Kanye West and Jay Z, and ‘One dance’ featuring Wizkid and Kyla. On ‘One Dance,’ the 6 God features Wizkid, whom he worked with before on “Ojuelegba” a popular hit, and Kyla, sampling the Crazy Cousinz remix of her song, ‘Do You Mind’. This raised the bar a lot higher for the star pop singer and helped to improve his brand visibility. 

The single ‘One dance’ is off Drake’s forthcoming album, following his successful “What a time to be alive” released in 2015. 

The collaboration was all thanks to Skepta, a friend of Wizkid, who introduced the song to Drake during a Wireless Music Festival held in London.

The crossover tune has gone on to have other covers and refixes with top artistes such as Sarkodie. 

Wizkid has worked with Grammy winner Angelique Kidjo, Ty Dolla $ign, and recorded a hook with Coldplay’s Chris Martin for pop star Rihanna. A performance with Chris Brown was in the works also in South Africa at the ‘X Tour’, so was another recording with UK star Tinie Tempah, and Norwegian pop icons Nico & Vinz. The singer is also likely to put out new music with American- Nigerian singer Jidenna.

More power to Wizkid!

Wizkid To Linda Ikeji – “Nobody Wants To Do You”

mtv personality of the year award

The blogger and singer are at war again. The several years old beef sprouted again as Wizkid and Linda Ikeji have rounds at each other

After Linda Ikeji posted news in her blog about Wizkid been evicted from his Lekki apartment on Sunday April 3, Wizkid came at her with full force calling her sad almost at 40 and still unmarried. He also revealed that his director had slept with Linda and dumped her ass in the hotel because her “pussy stinks”

 

 

wizkid;

Linda fired back at him on her blog with a very lenghty “essay” calling Wizkid a “friend” and a child as well. 

First and foremost, I’ve never met Wizkid one on one. I’ve only seen him once in real life on stage at a show a few years ago. I’ve never met anybody who is his director. Guess he put that line in his comments to defame me. You that mad that people now know the house is not yours? Lol. Trust me, if I knew someone was Wizkid’s director, I’d rather kill myself than sleep with him or any other entertainer for that matter (except maybe he’s my husband..hehe) because I know how some of these entertainers are…they kiss and tell a lot. You can’t afford to be messing around in their circle. So, no, I have NEVER slept with Wizkid’s director. I live a celibate life..most of the time. (Though, that has to end soon…I’m getting old and missing out on that part of life…lol)

I’ve always been an advocate of women respecting their bodies … I recommend celibacy for a long as you’re not committed to someone
why Wizkid is so mad at me? To be honest, I don’t know either. All I know is that his beef with me started a long time ago but he decided to start bashing me online after I refused a meeting with him.

Oh and by the way, did I mention that his Porsche car is also on hire purchase? Oh shit, I just mentioned that! And no, darling, you’re not 25! We know your real age! Continue to have an amazing career while I watch and continue to celebrate you.

Wizkid determined not to let the sleeping dog lie, then took to his Snapchat handle on Monday, 4th April, to post old pictures of Linda calling her a shithead and other derogatory words.

Many have tagged Wizkid’s actions as childish and that the singer is full of himself, however he obviously does not care.

Another Episode Of Reekado Banks The Peace Maker

Reekado Banks

Reekado Banks prevents fans from comparing him with wizkid. He is “one of the greats” – Reekado

A trend that was started on Twitter caught the attention of Reekado Banks and again he attempted to be a peace maker. There was not a direct cause but fans had started comparing him to Wizkid. Reekado stepped in immediately and anxious to put an end to the buzz. He said;

“Let’s clear the air quick… Please don’t disrespect Wizkid by comparing him to me wey just dey start.”

See post here;

Leyi/Twitter

Fans will never know if Reekado is sacred of fights or just does not have the time or strength for them. It is however ideal that Reekado took control of the situation before it got out of hand. Fans can be very voracious when it comes to fights between celebs.

It should be recalled that in light of the Headies controversy between he and Lil Kesh, he did nothing to add fuel to the already blazing fire. It was later discovered with a video as proof, that Reekado was actually rooting for Lil Kesh to win the NextRated award.

Fans hungry for a fight can now look the other way, Reekado is in no mood for that!
