Nigerian Afrobeats superstar Wizkid has come under heavy criticism from some Nigerian fans for boycotting the 2023 presidential election.

“So wizkid no fit come vote e go burial 😆 fc people imagine who be una goat 🐐 😂😂.”
Meanwhile, Nigerian singer Iyanya has claimed that wizkid made it possible for Tems to win Grammy Award.
He made the claim following a question making the rounds on social media, asking if Wizkid is part of Tems’ success story.
The incident occurred after a blog via its official Twitter handle asked, “Is it safe to say Wizkid is part of Tems’ success story?”
