Fans argue why Wizkid doesn’t engage his fans like Davido

Fans of both Wizkid and Davido argues on why Wizkid doesn’t engage his fans like Davido

Davido is generally regarded as the cruise master and respected for his time for his fans. He gives so much more than just music according to his fans.

Some on the other hand claim that although Wizkid drops Monster hit jams every now and then, he is generally a boring artist.

Few days ago, Davido called out some of his colleagues and fans to celebrate his birthday for him with a sum of N1million. In less than a day, he realised over N100million in just cash transfer.

Fans argue why Wizkid doesn't engage his fans like Davido

This achievement started the argument….

See below…

You expect Wizkid that just finished a month tour in Us & about to start a three day show in Uk to come and be catching cruise like the other guy that hasn’t done anything in a year!! Lmfaoooo biggest joke

It’s not about catching Cruise, the reason he has a successful tour is because he has fans who are listening to his music and spreading the news about his music.

If he can’t engage them often, then he doesn’t rate them enough.
