Ayo ‘Wizkid’ Balogun says he begged Duncan Mighty to collaborate with him on ‘Fake Love’.


The song, released in May, was the first-ever collaboration between the pair.

‘Fake Love’ skyrocketed to the top of online, radio and television charts, enjoying both commercial and critical acclaim.

Following the release and success of the song, many fans opined that Duncan Mighty’s career benefitted hugely from the collaboration.


Wizkid reacted to the insinuation during his ‘Made in Lagos’ concert at Eko Atlantic on Sunday.

The ‘Ojuelegba’ singer thanked Duncan Mighty for “blessing” him with the song and revealed that he initiated the collaboration.

He said in Pidgin English: “Dem no know say na me come beg you for that song. Today, I just wanna thank you for blessing me with that song.”


The video for the slow tempo song was directed by Clarence Peters.


‘Fake Love’ made TheCable Lifestyle’s list of top 10 songs that influenced pop culture in 2018.
