Nigerian singer and controversial media personality, Samklef, recently threw a subtle jab at superstar singer, Davido while offering praise to his rival, Wizkid. As he shared a photo of the Grammy-winning singer from his mother’s funeral, Samklef commended him as the original “001.”
In the midst of the controversy surrounding Davido’s contract issues, Samklef pointed out that Wizkid remains unscathed by scandals and has never faced allegations of contract breaches.
He went on to depict the singer as the embodiment of coolness, calmness, and collectedness, asserting that he serves as the ultimate role model for every artist.
“The original 001 I know.
Nobody don puff around his circle.
Clean boy noni. Always cool, calm, and collected.
Every artist role model even young and old”.
This is coming in the wake of a Nigerian photographer and businessman, Abu Salami publicly calling out the singer for reneging on a contract worth millions.
The businessman claimed to have paid the singer N218 million to influence a football project for kids, which he failed to show up for.
To make matters worse, Davido had refused to refund him his money and had bullied him by sending thugs to him.
He shared a disturbing video of him being beaten up by thugs, which he claimed were sent by the singer.
This is the second time this year the singer has been accused of reneging on contracts.
Last month, the Former Nigerian Football Federation president, Amaju Pinnick publicly called out Davido for failing to honor his contract with them.
The NFF President expressed displeasure at how Davido failed to show up at his event despite paying him an exorbitant amount and booking a private jet for his crew.
He went on to compare Davido to his rival, Burna Boy, who he stated was far above him.
To add to the list, Nigerian Tribal model, Adetutu Alabi had accused the singer of owing her after featuring in his music video.
She narrated her encounter with him and what transpired between them, as she pleaded with the singer to pay her money.
