Award winning producer Samklef has stated his displeasure with pop star Wizkid.
Producer Blasts Wizkid!
Producer reveals breakdown in relations between him and star artist
In a recent interview on Linda Ikeji, Samklef revealed that Wizkid has been going around and downgrading him. "I'm not happy with Wizkid. I like his music, but I don't like him as a person anymore. The reason I don't like him anymore is, why do you go about spoiling other people's business? I never spoiled your business, never came out to say anything bad about you for four years. So why would you go to an OAP and tell the OAP that the reason why you no longer work with me is because my beat is amateur. What does that mean? Those amateur beats was what brought you to limelight, was what made you meet the same Akon who first dropped 'Don't Dull' on your voice" he said.
Samklef also expressed shock at Wizkid's attitude towards him since he became a house hold name."I never downgraded him. I showed him love. I used to go to his house...but he never came to mine. He doesn't know my house. He hasn't even seen my son before. It means he doesn't regard me as a friend. I wanted to feature him in one of my songs but this guy kept posting me for years. That's not even why I am angry. I am angry because he's going about disrespecting my talent. Saying these things in public. It is annoying."
He also stated that without him, Wizkid wouldn't have made it to where he is today, and how he has alienated a lot of people. "I don't want to say I regret working with him but I'm thanking God that we are all alive. But ask him, the people you are going to feature in America, if they were like you, would you meet them?...Before Wizkid got to where he is today, somebody gave him a front line, somebody introduced him. He didn't just come from anywhere. Making music is not just about one person. Banky was there to give him the front line and others came to help out. I'm not the only one complaining, other producers are complaining. I don't want to call names but nobody is saying anything good about Wizkid and you call yourself a superstar when you keep matching other people down. What is the star about you? Is it because you are featuring other foreign artists? You are not the first to do that, others have done that before so why are you carried away?"
At the end of his statement he said he doesn't want anything to do with Wizkid anymore.
Samklef largely produced Wizkid's debut album Super Star, and his breakout singles 'Tease Me', and 'Don't Dull'.
