A UK-based Jamaican disk jockey, DJ Magic Jay, has recounted how Grammy-award-winning Nigerian singer, Wizkid slapped him at an event in London in 2018. The Jamaican, who said he is a fan of Nigerian afrobeat music, said he went to greet Wizkid at YCee’s concert at the 02 Academy in Islington, London, but the Starboy honcho slapped his hand away.
He stated this in a recent interview with Ruggedman TV, hosted by legendary Nigerian rapper Ruggedy Baba.
DJ Magic Jay said,
“YCee’s concert, I was in Islington at the 02, I walked in, I went to greet him [Wizkid], I said, ‘Hi, how are you doing, Wizkid? My name is Cool Magic Jay; a Jamaican guy who loves afrobeats’. I went to shake his hand and he slapped my hand away.”
He said he would love to interview Wizkid to unravel why he acted the way he did.
