‘I was amused’ – Ladipoe respond to Wizkid slamming Don Jazzy 


Nigerian rapper, Ladipoe, has responded to the backlash caused by his recent tweet that appeared to mock Wizkid.

The tweet was in reference to Wizkid’s statement about the death of hip hop.

Ladipoe wrote, “Nigerian rappers that survived ‘hip hop is dead’ Observing Afrobeat musicians experiencing their own journey.

A fan said, “Lol, never chatting with anyone signed to an influencer. Next.”

He also retweeted two tweets suggesting that he referred to Mavin Records boss, Don Jazzy as an influencer.

Wizkid’s indirect criticism of Don Jazzy caused anger on social media, with many celebrities such as skit makers Mr Macaroni and Nasboi, and reality stars Doyin and Tacha, condemning him for showing disrespect towards the Mavin boss.

In a recent interview with Cool FM, Lagos, Ladipoe expressed amusement at the chaos that ensued. He clarified that his tweet had been greatly misinterpreted.

He said, “The whole thing was a joke. Hip-hop artists have been through this time when there was a faux narrative that hip-hop I’d dead. And now, you are getting the same whispers about Afrobeats. Once again, I think that they are just as ridiculous and false as at the time they were saying hip-hop is dead.

“So my tweet was like, ‘Okay, you guys [Afrobeats singers], we [rappers] went through our own [hard times]. Don’t worry, this too shall pass.’

“I was more like a joke like we went through ours, now you are going through yours. That was the joke. If there’s anybody it was aimed at, it is more aimed at the audience or anybody who believes these narratives. Who are you to say any genre is dead?

“That was the whole intention behind the joke. Any other interpretation of it is something I didn’t anticipate. I know what I was thinking when I tweeted it. I tweeted it. Went to bed. Woke up to chaos.

“To be honest, the first thing I felt when I saw all the reactions, I was amused.”
