Singer, L.A.X released his album, ‘Zaza Vibes’, yesterday (Friday, November 27) and in a bid to generate hype and traction to the album he made a groundbreaking statement that did nor really sit well with the fans.

Hours after releasing his album, he decided to enter avatar mode and use all his elements at once by openly putting the controversial statement: “My album is easily the best album that dropped in 2020. NO CAP” via a tweet. A statement which in his own can be said to be subjective but judging by fans response, they made their objection clear from the jump.

2020 has produced (and still producing) a ton of albums, mixtape, EPs and singles and Nigeria is not left out. The ‘3 Headed-Beast’ of Nigerian music industry in Davido, Burna Boy and Wizkid have all produced albums in contention for albums of the year according to fans and music critic and they do not see L.A.X’s ‘Zaza Vibes’ album in that clique yet.

But for some reasons, Davido has chosen a period span of 3 years to reply and accept the claim of Wizkid and use it as a subliminal jab at Wizkid.

He tweeted: “U get frog voice .. e dey Lagos”. This may or not be a diss to Wizkid but a likely one as it was Wizkid who started the whole frog voice trend.
