The singer had earlier complained that Wizkid was releasing a new song on the same day he also planned to drop his track.

According to him, the Essence crooner’s music prevented his song from getting the desired attention he had been envisaging.

In another video, he stated that he announced the date he was releasing his song over a month ago but 10 Nigerian singers also decided to drop their music the same day.
