Wizkid, however, swatted his hand away with disdain.
Wizkid, a Nigerian celebrity artist, is accused of slapping a Jamaican disc jockey named DJ Magic Jay during a London event in 2018.
The Jamaican stated he went to see Wizkid at YCee’s show at the 02 Academy in Islington, London, and conveyed his admiration for Nigerian afrobeats music. Wizkid, however, swatted his hand away with disdain.
In a recent interview with Ruggedman TV, which was narrated by the renowned Nigerian rapper Ruggedy Baba, he made this revelation.
“YCee’s concert, I was in Islington at the 02, I walked in, I went to greet him [Wizkid], I said, ‘Hi, how are you doing, Wizkid? My name is Cool Magic Jay; I’m a Jamaican guy who loves afrobeats’. I went to shake his hand, and he slapped my hand away.” He said.
DJ Magic Jay stated that he would adore speaking with Wizkid to learn the reasons behind his actions.
“I wanna interview Wizkid. He probably won’t remember what happened but I will like interview him just to ask him questions like do you like it or hate it when you get approached by fans or people in the industry too much…That could be one of those moments he was like ah leave me alone, I just want to enjoy the show”, he added.
