During the early hours of Friday, April 9, one of Wizkid’s previous tweets addressing rapper MI Abaga has suddenly resurfaced on social media.

The tweet, which was published on 1st November, 2010 at 8:14pm revealed the Afrobeat singer seeking the attention of the veteran rapper.

The tweet read: “@MI_Abaga hello sir..my name is wizkid..nd am an QQ artiste….I’ve met u b4 bt not sure u remb me..am a bigggg fan sir!..”

With the resurfacing of Wizkid’s tweet, social media users have reacted in a number of ways.

While some have hailed Starboy for his record-breaking growth, others have said he was kidding with his tweet.

In 2010, Wizkid was an upcoming artiste who was signed to Banky W’s Empire Mates Entertainment, EME.

He released his debut album, Superstar in 2011 and has continued to experience a fascinating rise in his music career.

Indeed, the 30-year-old is one of the biggest acts to emerge from Africa. His contribution to the Afrobeats scene has also made him one of the most marketable celebrities in Nigeria.

In 2016, Wizkid achieved international recognition following his collaboration with Drake on the global hit, “One Dance”. Indeed, the song reached number one in 15 countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.

In March 2017, Billboard magazine reported that Wizkid signed a multi-album deal with RCA Records. Further, his third studio album – Sounds from the Other Side – was released by RCA Records.

Meanwhile, it served as his major-label debut and was primarily a Caribbean-influenced record. The album was supported by huge singles: “Daddy Yo”, “Sweet Love”, “Come Closer” featuring Drake, among others.

In 2021, he won his first Grammy following his collaborating with American songstress, Beyonce on ‘Brown Skin Girl’.

Nigerian singer Chidinma Ekile professionally known as Chidinma has opened up on the real reason she returned to gospel music.

Chidinma who refers to herself as “Mummy GO”, is currently signed on with the Eezee concept and has released her first gospel song titled: “Jehovah overdo”.

She regretted wasting a lot of time doing secular music, vowing never to return to it.

The end-time soldier, as she also refers to herself, added the devil had been winning for too long in her life but she wants to use all of her talents to work for her father who is in heaven.

“Our God is faithful, He never lies and He does whatever He says. So I’m here today, it’s been a long journey. I had an opportunity to spend time with Him, it’s a rare privilege to spend time with Him and He told me a lot of things and He said, He has been waiting for me. So, He is happy to receive me. God has been very intentional about me.

“He is very mindful of me. I’m not here because I want fame. I’ve had all of that and I think I’ve had enough of all of that. So, right now is the time to work for my father. He is the one who has called me I did not bring myself here.”

“As a matter of fact, I did not want to be here but I’m going into ministry in full force.

“So, most of you might not understand my ways because you don’t know where I’m coming from, and that is because a lot of time has been wasted. So, I need to catch up with time. I’m moving with time, there is no time.

“The enemy has been winning for too long. I’ve had my share of influence and all of that, but now I’m using all of that, everything the enemy thought he had given to me though was given to me by God, while he was lying that he gave them to me, now I’m using all of that to work for my father.”

“So, when you see me doing some very extreme thing, just understand where I’m coming from, there is no time. There are too many people out there we have to bring back into the house.

“Jesus is coming soon, sooner than you expect. So we cannot allow them to miss out on that. Now is the time to do the work,” she said.

Michael Blackson, a Hollywood actor of Ghanaian-descent has taken to social media to urge African leaders to fix the continent.

The actor and comedian stated that there is no middle class in Africa, only the rich and poor, and that the politicians are the richest people on the continent.

Specifically, Blackson said the average income in Ghana is so low, yet houses in Ghana cost more than houses in Atlanta.

He also complained about how African leaders go into leadership positions and become rich. He said the richest people in Africa are those in government but this isn’t the case in America.

He went on to say that something needs to be done about Africa to make life better for the average man.

Read his thread;

The richest people in Africa are the government officials; but in America, I know beeches on only fans that make way more than Joe Biden”

To be a leader of any country you have to be selfless, you have to care about the women and kids on the streets begging for money as if they are your family. #FixAfrica”

He continued;

“I’m so confused with what’s going on in West Africa, if the average income is $100-$200 a month why aren’t there affordable homes with mortgages ranging from $25-$50 a month?

Houses in Ghana costs more than Atlanta but the average income is less than what a crackhead gets on the street.”
