Wizkid and J Martins in war of words over fan comment
By Osagie Alonge
Wizkid says he’s letdown by J Martins‘ recent comments, chastising the manner at which he addressed one of his fans.
Some days ago, Wizkid had responded to a fan (@spruzman) on his Instagram page as being ‘broke and therefore having no right to an opinion’ after the fan had clowned him on a grammatical error.
Vanguard on August 26, 2013 published part of a transcript of JMartins’ conversation with a Hot Fm 98.3 Abuja OAP allegedly reacting to Wizkid’s outburst stating that Wizzy had ‘such a bad attitude’.
‘I don’t believe because you feel you have a few change you didn’t have a few years ago and which you cannot guarantee having in a few years to come then you wake up and look at those people who have cheered you up, loved you, supported your music, bought your CD’s, prayed for you, just because you can lay your hands on some phone and you call them ‘poor’. I’m not in and will never be in support of anyone who has such bad attitude‘, the alleged statement read.
Well Wizkid hit back at the highlife singer 12 hours later on Twitter, telling J Martins that he was very disappointed at him for passing judgement.
‘I never called any of my nfans broke…that comment was directed to one person that insulted me…not a fan. You have been in this industry long enough to know better than this and I’m very disappointed about your statement‘, Wizkid tweeted at J Martins.
But J Martins says the newspaper falsely reported his comments. ‘Let it be known that I never blasted @wizkidayo as falsely reported. there is no point to create a controversy that doesn’t exist‘, J Martins also tweeted.
