Davido has resurrected his famous beef with Wizkid, as he went off on a shade spree over the latter’s 2019 election comment. Recall that Wizkid had advised Nigerians against voting for a candidate because a celebrity endorsed them.

“Politicians stop joking with people’s lives. You are responsible for the lives of millions of people and your decision affects all. Help make Nigeria a better place,” Wizkid wrote on Snapchat.

“Don’t let anybody wen don collect money influence your vote to tell u who’s right or not! Use your head! Vote wisely! I’m for whoever the people vote.

“Vote who you like…vote wisely. If you are old enough to get a PVC, you are old enough to think! Don’t sell your vote…your vote can make a difference! Go out and vote,” the singer added.

His comment was backed by claims by an Instagram channel, that the StarBoy Records boss rejected millions from politicians to perform at their campaigns so as not to influence voters. @urfreshtv wrote;
