He is being accused of showing “no respect” and lacking “integrity” according to Wizkid’s manager, Jada “P” Pollock.

Since Wizkid won the award for appearing on Beyoncé led “Black Skin Girl” video, fans have been anticipating the day he would flaunt recieving the plaque online but that day did not come as expected as it was a close associate (i.e Tufab) who took it upon himself to show off the Grammys plaque rather than Wizkid himself; at such Manager and baby mama to Wizkid’s third son, took to her Twitter account to air out her opinion on the matter, she tweeted: “Some people in life honestly have no respect & integrity. “Why would you be asked to deliver something and then take it upon yourself to open the box & post it.

Award-winning English singer, songwriter, pianist and one of the best selling artists of all-time, Elton John has been tagged “the greatest songwriter” by Nigerian new-school face of R&B—Fireboy DML.

Fireboy played the over/under game with Pitchfork where guests are told to rate certain objects, things, persons and whatnot whether they are overrated or underrated. On his episode, the first to be rated turns out to be Sir Elton John on which Fireboy’s opinion was solicited, he replied: “Elton John is like the greatest songwriter to me. He’s a legend [laughs]. I don’t think he should be under that tag [of being overrated or underrated]. Let’s just leave him up there on that pedestal.”

Fireboy DML whose latest “Peru” release has fastly gone up the charts goes further to give his verdicts regarding ‘tiny spoons’, ‘love letters’, ‘sad songs’, ‘sunglasses’; even calling saxophones overrated because “there are so many more instruments that convey emotions better than saxophones.” Watch the full video below:

Nancy Isime went further to ask Blaqbonez what his thoughts are about being labelled the “touch bearer of rap in Nigeria” to which he gave the reply: “I honestly I’m not trying to get boxed in, so anytime there’s any rap conversations, I don’t care about that. . . I’m versatile.” Blaqbonez goes further to say the era of championing himself as the “Best Rapper in Africa” or BRIA (for short) is over, that he only went with the vibe because of the response he got from saying those words in one of his songs and since people cared much about what he had to say, he used the BRIA tag to his advantage, taking his music to the mainstream forefront; even testifying to the fact that many rappers call themselves ‘the best’ on their songs but no one really pays attention.
