Tobi Bakre, second runner-up of Big Brother Naija: Double Wahala, has expressed his irritation at Nigerian singers who make a meal out of foreign artistes listening to their songs.


“It irks me when a foreign artiste listening to a Nigerian song is made to look like an achievement or such a big deal. I don’t understand. What else should they be vibing to? Ugh!” he wrote through his twitter handle.

Tobi Bakre’s reaction is coming after Rihanna Fenty, Barbadian pop singer and actress was spotted listening to Wizkid’s 2014 hit song ‘Ojuelegba’ while admiring herself.

I will make sure she starts playing Davido regularly. I will be sending her DMs everyday from today “Good morning Riri, Davido is the king of the new school in Africa. Listen to his music”. We have so many latest songs that she should be listening to nau… #Rihanna #Riri #30BG

In recent times, Nigerian artistes have enjoyed global attention with many using it as opportunities to headline their own concerts overseas.

Tamar Braxton, Grammy-nominated American artiste, expressed her interest in working with Davido on his forthcoming album.

In early April, Niniola Apata, Afro-house songstress was all smiles when Drake requested for her ‘Maradona’ to be played on a radio show he was co-hosting in the United Kingdom.

“Imagine waking up in the morning to find out that Drake just followed you. Hmm, this Isolo girl shaa! I followed back immediately,” Niniola enthused after the Canadian followed her on Instagram.


This had come after Timbaland, American disc jockey publicly endorsed Niniola’s ‘Designer’ in the preceding month.
