A lion who loves to roll up from time to time and another who supposedly has a frog voice have been enmeshed in a social media spat for weeks.


Many say it is a publicity stunt, and owing to the fact that all the artistes involved are working on fresh projects, it may well be.

But then, it has been interesting and it’s worth a share.

It all started in June when Wizkid and Davido appeared to exchange veiled swipes on social media – without actually mentioning each other’s names.


The exchange culminated in Wizkid saying a certain “local” champion should not be jealous of the international stage success of his peers – especially as he failed to make hay with his own foray.

Then, much recently, Davido accepted the title of “local” on ‘Summer Body,’ his new collaboration with Olamide.

“With Yankee passport, they say we local. You better catch up, I’ll see you later,” he sang.


Wizkid responded by saying: “Yankee passport” cannot cure a frog voice, seemingly in reference to Davido’s croaky voice.

His tweet turned the controversy a notch higher as fans picked sides and blogs lapped it up.

Then came Tekno, who is desperately trying to build his Twitter followership, with a tweet that appeared like a swipe at Wizkid.

He wrote:


While fans were in the process of taking him apart for his tweets, ‘lion’ Wizkid took it upon himself to do the honours.


He said, “ducks don’t play where lions play”.

And just in case anyone was in doubt about who the duck was, he promptly clarified.

Wizkid’s tweets ignited a flood of comments, reactions, as well as memes of a duck and frog on Twitter.

While the storm was yet to subside, MC Galaxy, who has struggled to have a major hit in a minute, took to Instagram to take a dig at Tekno.

Cynthia Morgan, not one to shy away from controversy, jumped on his case and promptly informed him that his post was out of place.

She has since deleted her posts – but screenshots will suffice.



While the young guns threw swipes back and forth and fans relished the show, a voice of reason — from an industry elder/Wizkid’s former boss Banky W — boomed in the midst of the social media chatter.

He took to Instagram to dish this counsel.

Tekno, meanwhile, has issued a hard-to-grasp response to the “attention” that’s “falling” on him.

And then, he revealed his real intentions.

The “duck” also offered to produce a track for one of the “lions”.
