‘Davido will never do this’ — Uche Ogbodo berates Wizkid over criticism of rap
Uche Ogbodo, the actress, has taken a swipe at Wizkid for saying rap is “dead and boring”.
Wizkid had in a recent interview spoken argued for the dominance of Afrobeats over other music genres.
The singer said he does not listen to rap music anymore because he no longer finds it interesting.
Wizkid also described the rap genre as “old, boring, tired and dead”.
His comment, however, did not sit well with many indigenous practitioners and fans of rap music.
In a lengthy Instagram post on Saturday, Ogbodo called out Wizkid, stating that he had no “loyalty” to his people.
She also said Nigerians don’t like each other, adding that Davido wouldn’t have said what Wizkid said.
“Wizkid was wrong! Too wrong! How could you say such about your people?” Ogbodo asked in Pidgin and English.
“No loyalty to your people! To your country, only selfishness is everywhere. Abeg make all of them gettat, this is not nice. All Nigerian rappers, y’all are the biggest and greatest, abeg. Justice for Naija rappers.”
In another post via her Instastory, Uche Ogbodo wrote: “How dare you? Davido would never do this lai lai.”
Among those who have countered Wizkid’s viewpoint on rap is MI Abaga who insisted the genre is on the rise”.
