Buju, the fast-rising Nigerian singer, has been spotted in what appeared to be a studio session with Wizkid, Wande Coal and King Promise, Ghanaian highlife and Afrobeats musician.
In a couple of short videos shared on his Instastories on Sunday, Buju could be seen in the studio with the three afrobeats heavyweights, alongside other “studio rats”.
It remains to be seen if the singers are teaming up on a music project.
The singer, whose real name is Daniel Benson, had in a series of tweets spanning a period of three years (2015 to 2018) trolled the likes of Wizkid, Davido, Mr Eazi, and Yemi Alade.
He had — at the time — described ‘Daddy Yo’, a 2016 hit song by Wizkid, as “trash”, called Davido a “childish c*nt” while saying that Mr Eazi was “overrated.”
As the old tweets began to attract fresh backlash on social media, the emerging vocalist, however, apologised over what he described as his “unsolicited takes about another person’s music”.
“Over the years I have grown to understand that receiving or consuming music is way easier than actually making music,” he wrote in a now-deleted Twitter post.
“It’s why when you don’t make music and all you do is consume, it’s easier to make unsolicited takes about another person’s music and that’s what I used to do… sadly.
“Lol in 2015/16/17 I didn’t know I was even going to make music. I just used to listen and criticize which is still allowed as far I no kill anybody but it was because I knew no better.
“So if people think it’s wise to criticize me over tweets from those years, it’s calm…it’s just joblessness. I know way better and I’m cool with everybody.”
The ‘Catch a Vibe’ singer was signed to Spaceship records, a music label owned by Burna Boy, Grammy award-winner, in 2020.
Buju also boasts of an extended play titled ‘To Your Ears’ and has featured prominent artists like Zlatan, JAE5, Blaqbonez, and Ladipoe.
