Teni and Shizzi Fights Dirty On Social Media
Teni is one of the most amazing female celebrities in the country today and a household name.
She has managed to stay away from controversy until she public-traded words with Shizzi who is a producer.
As a matter of fact, Shizzi produced Davido’s hit single Dami Duro which was the song that solidifies OBO’s hold in Afrobeat.
So what really happened?
It all started when Teni made a tweet on his Twitter handle that people use people.
A tweet that Shizzi found funny and called out Teni on Twitter saying that the singer has no right to complain about using people.
According to him, Teni used his beat for the popular hit single Case which blew up in 2018, and bagged the singer numerous awards.
Shizzi feels aggrieved because Teni did not give him any credit as the producer of the song.
both went on a war of words with Teni asking for Stems of the song if Shizzi really knew he produced the song.
Shizzi also threatened to sue the singer for copyright issues and Teni called Shizzi a Lil bitch.

Davido Bags New Endorsement Deal With PUMA

Wizkid Gets Dragged On Stage In Warri & Abuja
It has become increasingly worrisome the way fans behave when they see their favorite celebrity.
The excitement is something else entirely which is what you and I will get into shortly.
A couple of days back, Wizkid performed in Abuja after flying in from the USA where he performed at the 02 arenas alongside the likes of Tems.
On getting to Nigeria the singer was booked to perform at Harlow Park in Abuja.
During his performance in Abuja, a fan ran to the stage dragging the singer so hard that he fell to the ground.
It took several bouncers/bodyguards to be able to pull the fan away and nearly the same thing happened in Warri.
During his performance in Warri, a fan also reached out for his glasses which is an act of stealing if you ask me.
Although bouncers were quick to react, it hints that there should be more safety measures put in place for celebrities performing in the country.
