@DanielRegha; Wizkid should get Wisekid arrested & sue him to court cos what he’s doing is illegal; It’s called music plagiarism. These artiste make little from online music sales so why will anyone deliberately want to shorten their bags? This is wickedness & shouldn’t be encouraged.
@freemedigital; We did NOT distribute his ‘Lasgidi Made’ album and have only distributed his old content. We will see him and everyone else involved in this lie and defamation in court.@JagunJagun6; Why is FC crying in this comment section? Dude is making ₦30M/month Wizkid hasn’t and can’t sue him Cry more!@duchess_edna; It shall never be well with you so long as you live on this earth, you will toil in vain & another will take the credit & reap the fruits of your labour.
