Wizkid, the Grammy award-winning Nigerian singer, has advised his followers to “work smart” and avoid “hustling like fools”.


The ‘Bad To Me’ hitmaker took to his X page on Thursday to share the advice a few hours after his colleague Davido ventured into cryptocurrency.

“Work smart make u no go dey hustle like fool,” he wrote in Pidgin.

Wizkid’s tweet, however, triggered conversations on social media about financial prudence, with many of his followers insinuating he was aiming a dig at Davido.


The ‘Unavailable’ hitmaker recently launched $Davido, his new cryptocurrency coin in a partnership involving Phantom and Solana.


The coin quickly gained popularity and even earned profits for early investors.

However, there were rumours it crashed a few hours later with many users calling out the singer for an alleged scam.

Wizkid and Davido are considered to be among the three biggest artistes in Nigeria in contemporary times, with their fans often divided over who is superior

In April, the ‘Ojuelegba’ hitmaker sparked a frenzy on social media after he mocked Davido and Don Jazzy.


Wizkid called Don Jazzy, the Mavin Records boss, an “influencer” while taunting Davido with a video of him on his knees, pleading and crying.

Davido, however, retaliated, labeling Wizkid’s career as “dead”.
