Wizkid, Davido reunite, celebrate friendship


Grammy-award winner and singer, Ayo Balogun, known as Wizkid, and award winning singer, David Adeleke, known as Davido, yesterday got enthusiasts and music lovers amused as they were pictured and videoed sharing a warm hug in a Lagos nightclub on Friday night/Saturday morning.

In the video, the duo were seen hugging each other and exchanging courtesies, as fun lovers in attendance screamed in excitement.

Remember that for years, both singers had been said not to be on good terms. But in 2018, Wizkid had joined Davido on stage during a show starred by Wizkid.

Responding to the reunite, Nigeria singer, Innocent Idibia, known as 2Baba, took to his Instagram page to express his happiness by posting, “This puts a smile on my face.”

Also rapper, Yusuf Sodiq, aka CDQ, posted, “I just woke up now to a video of Wizkid and David hugging each other. Finally, after I had suffered for years trying to balance the relationship between both (of them). Wizkid would say (to me), ‘Your brother is hosting a show, won’t you support him’? Meanwhile, Davido would also tell me, ‘Tell your brother to bring a jam; let us work’. That was when I knew that these two love each other and they have been inspiring each other to go harder. Today I am the happiest person on earth, and I feel like buying cows to throw a big party. Now, both of you should give us that collaboration that the world has been waiting for in 2022. The song arrangement should be four ‘bars’ each for Wizkid and Davido. Burna Boy would then sing the chorus. Let’s make Nigeria number one in the world.”
