Published

on

Omo Baba Olowo, David Adeleke, simply called, Davido, made sure not to fall for the trap set by The Shade Room interviewer last night on the IG Live he had with them.

As the Live drew to an end, the interviewer chose to ask Davido a question he is well accustomed to hearing by now, she asks: “Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy. Who is the biggest artist globally in your opinion?” To which a funny but unexpected response came forth.

Davido answered: “Mayorkun, his name is Mayorkun” even spelling his DMW label mate out word for word, he continued: “M-A-Y-O-R-K-U-N”.

Just last week, in a promo interview for his album “A Better Time”, Davido bragged about being the bigger artiste among the 3 to Ndani TV but chose to sarcastically answer this time around.

Mayorkun and Davido have collaborated on nothing less than five songs, with two of their latest feature coming in “The Best” and “I Got A Friend”.

Renowed actor and filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan, one of the forerunners of present day Nollywood, reacted angrily to a tweep (Isholanson @iam_Muideen) who falsely accused him of not adding English subtitle to the French spoken in his latest blockbuster – ‘Citation’.

The tweep @iam_Muideen tweeted: “@kunleafolayan Citation Is A Great Film No Doubt, But Non Subtitle Of French Part Is A Great Disservice To The Movie.” The tweep was caught red-handed as the movie actually had and still has subtitle embedded in it on the official release platform and streaming site, Netflix.

Isholanson, obviously has followed route of downloading from pirate and non-official websites and safe to say, he got the value of his money yet still audaciously came online to discredit the work put into the movie and to add salt to his injury, he had the guts to tag Kunle Afolayan on his post.

Kunle Afolayan did not take the false accusation lightly, rather choosing to blast the tweep for downloading the movie which was exclusive to Netflix from “unauthorized streaming platforms”, harshly calling the fellow “a very stupid idiot”.

‘Citation’ was released on 6th of November to be distributed by Netflix and as at last week was ranked among Top 10 movies in the world according to Netflix charts.
