Nigerian musician, Banky Wellington who recently got married to his wife, Adesua Etomi Wellington has weighed in on the rivalry between Davido and Wizkid. Banky urged the two musicians to cool things down and not allow people force them into unnecessary confrontation.
This comes after Davido made a post in which he was reportedly throwing shade at Wizkid.
“Nah for una pocket!!!!! GRATEFUL!! 2017 been too good!! ❤️❤️❤️ CLEAR ROAD FOR THAT MAN!!” Davido had written on Instagram.
However, Banky made out time to congratulate the two for winning different awards at the just concluded Music of Black Origin awards. He warned them not to allow people push the two into an unnecessary ‘war.’
Banky wrote: “While we are at it, Bigups to another young legend @davidoofficial on his wins.. this talented lad came into the game, never stopped working and never stopped winning. And I’m so proud of him as well.
What’s better than one Superstar? Two.
Wiz and David are both extremely important to the Naija/African music movement and culture, and I personally HATE it when ppl try to make it seem like you have to choose one or the other. There’s enough room in the sky for all of our stars to fly, so instead of us encouraging a childish, petty narrative that never ends well (remember Pac/Biggie?), we shld encourage all of our acts to be all they can be. I don’t wanna choose. Why should I have to? I want Wiz AND David AND Olamide AND Kiss Daniel AND Tiwa AND Yemi and eeeeevery last one of us who have somehow managed to break through, to remain successful and relevant. I pray the same for all our upcoming talents who are about to make it.
After all, no one wins when the family feuds. I’m clear why I’m here.. how about you? #jayzvoice.”
