The Monday February 23, 2015 twitter rant between ex-label mates Wizkid and Skales still remains a trending topic in the Nigerian music industry.
Both stars had a go at each other’s career and personality on social media, and the event has since been generating mixed reactions from fans, industry pundits and their colleagues. Skales who is currently putting finishing touches on the release of his debut album ‘Man of The year’ was recently cornered by NET for an exclusive interview in Lagos, and in 5 questions, he explained his own angle of the story.
Let’s talk about your recent twitter spat with Wizkid, you guys were together at an event some hours before you went online, what really happened?
The truth is, we were not really together, we were just at the same venue at the same event that’s all, and really, whatever needs to be said now has already been said on twitter so you can pick everything there, right now I’ve put the whole episode behind me. I just want people to focus more on my music, it’s life human beings must always fallout.
Let’s go back to your time at E.M.E, what kind of relationship did you have with Wizkid?
We were just there, we were cool. For me it was just about making music, that’s what brought us together in the first place, it’s not like we are from the same family, so let’s just focus on the music which was what I did, if I had something on my mind I always say it out.
At what point did you guys really fall out?
We never really fell out, the relationship we had has always been about music, it’s not like we are brothers, we are not from the same family like I said, it was just business and music, so we were cool, and even till now we are still cool, I have no bad blood against him, I just want to face my music right now, I’m about to drop my album and that’s all that matters to me right now.
How long have you been trying to get Wizkid to work with you?
For as long as every other person has been trying I guess (laughs), we know that he’s a busy person and I’m a busy person too, I’m doing my own thing too. The truth is, I really don’t want to talk about it.
Will you consider working with Wizkid anytime soon?
I don’t know, fingers crossed….
