UK-based Jamaican disc jockey, DJ Magic Jay, has made shocking claims against Nigerian superstar singer, Wizkid, alleging that he was slapped by the Afrobeats artist during an event in London back in 2018.
In an interview with Ruggedman TV, hosted by Nigerian rapper Ruggedy Baba, DJ Magic Jay recounted the incident and expressed his love for Nigerian Afrobeats music.
According to him, he attended YCee’s concert at the 02 Academy in Islington, London, and approached Wizkid to greet him.
However, News about Nigeria gathered that instead of receiving a friendly response, DJ Magic Jay claimed that Wizkid dismissively slapped his hand away.
The Jamaican DJ, who has been based in the UK, expressed his disappointment and surprise at the alleged incident.
He stated that he had always admired Wizkid’s music and considered him a talented artist.
DJ Magic Jay’s account of the incident has sparked a buzz on social media, with fans and followers expressing their opinions and reactions to the alleged altercation.
“YCee’s concert, I was in Islington at the 02, I walked in, I went to greet him [Wizkid], I said, ‘Hi, how are you doing, Wizkid? My name is Cool Magic Jay; I’m a Jamaican guy who loves afrobeats’. I went to shake his hand, and he slapped my hand away.” He said.
DJ Magic Jay said he would love to interview Wizkid to understand why he acted that way.
“I wanna interview Wizkid. He probably won’t remember what happened but I will like interview him just to ask him questions like do you like it or hate it when you get approached by fans or people in the industry too much…That could be one of those moments he was like ah leave me alone, I just want to enjoy the show”, he added.
