Weeks back, Music Producer Samklef took a jab at
Wizkid on Twitter with some very disturbing set of
Wizkid did reply, but for Samklef that wasn’t going
to be the end of everything. Samklef has also
unfollowed wizkid on Twitter and Instagram.
Samklef recently had an interview with Notjustok
and he revealed why he was upset with Wizkid.
Also Read Excerpts from the Interview below..
A couple of days ago, there was this uproar on
Social Media about your tweets aimed at Wizkid.
What happened? Why did you do that?
Okay, basically I have been faithful and loyal to
Wizkid for so long. I’m gonna be 30 by next year
and of which this guy is a kid and when he came
to me, I didn’t look at his age, I was so humble to
him because I love his talent and charisma. The only problem I have is that when the fame got
to him, It was like we were competing.
Take for instance, I walked up to him in 2011 for
Nonilising video shoot and he told me the song
was not good enough. 2012 again, I went to his
house in Ogudu and presented him with a song –
BIG Alomo. Again, Wizkid said the song was not
good enough. I said no problem and waited again
till 2013 and I now heard what he told a producer
about me (name withheld) because I don’t want to
involve anybody. This is my fight and I want to
face. I sent Wizkid a text in 2013 and I said
“Wizkid, why do you treat people who were there
for you like sh*t?, I don’t need your money, just
respect people and be good”. After that, I forgot
the text and kept famzing him. I came to Lekki
since January and I have been in the hotel since
and I Just moved out about a month ago. I actually
wanted to refresh my brain because at a point, I
stopped believing in myself. So, I’ve been forcing
myself to Wizkid and he has never invited me to
his house as I have been the one going to his
house on my own. At times, I would knock at his
gate and the security will tell me he’s not around. I
tried everything possible to get close to this guy
but he was not ready to help my career.
People think this is a sort of publicity stunt by you.
It’s not a publicity stunt at all. I just feel this was
the right time to respond to all the things he has
been saying about me. I just needed to clear the
air. People has been asking me why I’ve not been
with Wizkid. We are not cool! We are not friends
either. He doesn’t know my house. Wizkid has
never called me for one day! The only time he
called me was last year when I went to his house
to help him record “JAIYE JAIYE”. You understand?
I got love for this brother but I just want him to
learn how to show love and carry people along.
I’m not trying to create any beef at all. And the
funny thing is that Wizkid went to pay bloggers to
be retweeting his tweets and paid PR guys to start
fighting me. I’m not fighting Wizkid. I was only
trying to prove a point. Why didn’t he reply my
accusations? Why is he saying he wishes my
family well? I just felt like I should school this
I actually thought you only produced for him and
that was it. Never knew you guys were cool. How
did you get to meet Wizkid?
We were never cool. Me and Wizkid were NEVER
friends. Let me tell you the story: I met Wizkid
Skales has been my friend from way back in
Obalende through Vector and he heard my beats. I
did Durella’s “My Life” back then. So, Skales told
him that he has a friend called Samklef. So, Skales
brought Wizkid to me and they paid me the first
time – 50,000 but for me, it wasn’t about the
All the while I was working with him, I
didn’t cry for money or anything.
