Wizkid is surely not having a smooth time with a lot of people in the music industry at the moment, in 2014 alone, he’s had the highest strings of beefs with other artistes which include Davido, Saeon, and his ex-producer Samklef.
Now, another producer has voiced his annoyance and displeasure with the Afro-pop star.
This is coming from the popular music Producer, Osabuohien Osaretin known as Sarz is the popular music producer who is responsible for the production of countless hit singles by Wizkid, the Edo state born music producer is responsible for songs like ‘samba’, ‘Jaiye Jaiye’, and several others. So here’s what led to their fall out. There’s been a cold war between both parties when Wizkid began to work more with other producers like Legendury Beatz and MaleekBerry, and it got worse when Saeon’s ex-manager Alex Adegbenro while narrating his version of the Saeon and Wizkid saga said,
“..And I remember he gave us a list of producers he could work with, he said it was either, Samklef, Sarz or Maleek Berry and we picked Sarz and then when he heard the beat Sarz made, he didn’t like it, so he called Sarz and was like ‘dude, you know my new sound, why do you keep making beats like this. So we went back the second time and Maleek Berry just laced a beat and the song happened like a freestyle.”
Wizkid’s 5 years contract with his current record label E.M.E would expire on December 1, 2014, and his fans expects a smooth transition as he’ll officially transit to running his own ‘Star Boy’ records and prepare to drop a new album.
