Meanwhile, Nigerian Afrobeats superstar Wizkid has come under heavy criticism from some Nigerian fans for boycotting the 2023 presidential election.
The criticisms were triggered by a video circulating on the internet which showed the musician attending Ghanaian producer Killbeat’s late mother’s funeral in Tema, Ghana.
Some Nigerians became enraged after they spotted the clip and accused the singer of failing to support the election of capable leaders in Nigeria.
