‘Skales & Wizkid are not Friends and They do not Talk” – Insider Spills the Beans
It came as a shock to virtually everybody in the entertainment industry when former best buddies and label mates, Wizkid and Skales took themselves to the cleaners on social media earlier in the week.
A fan had innocuously asked Skales if he would feature Wizkid in his upcoming album and the Shake Body singer said he wouldn’t because Wizkid doesn’t have his time any longer. That was the beginning of the war. The artistes thereafter abused themselves on twitter to the dismay of their fans.
Later in the week, a source who didn’t want his name in print told PUNCH that Skales was really tired of Wizkid’s ‘façade.’
The source actually confirmed the enmity had been brewing even before it degenerated to the twitter war earlier in the week.
“They are not friends and they do not talk. Even the party they both attended recently,
they did not talk to each other. Skales had been asking Wizkid for favours since they were both in EME and even after they left the record label but Wizkid always puts Skales on hold and keeps procrastinating. Whenever he tries to reach him on phone, he does not pick his calls and when he does, he acts ‘somehow.’
Before Skales released his hit single, they were meant to have a joint project together, a Skales/Wizkid project but they could not reach a conclusion. Whenever Skales goes to meet him (Wizkid), he normally acts as if Skales is disturbing him. But the truth is that when Skales tweeted that Wizkid doesn’t have his time, he was only joking even though it is the truth. Skales got upset when Wizkid said that his home is also Skales’ home. He felt that Wizkid did not need to put up a show on Twitter when the exact opposite is what is happening in reality,” he said.
However, the source believes that the two artistes would settle their differences soon.
“I think it is just the normal quarrel between two friends and they would settle it. Skales is not taking it personal at all and he is back to work and that is why he released his song, Je Kan MO, which is also trending at the moment,” the source said.
Some fans believe that Skales is probably envious of Wizkid’s success. But reacting to that, Skales manager, Osagie Osarenkhoe, who also managed Wizkid at a point in his career, debunked such insinuations. She told Saturday Beats that both artistes are doing very well individually.
“No one is jealous of the other. Both artistes are doing great individually,” she said.
