Forty eight hours after Linda Ikeji’s response to Singer Wizkid, the latter is yet to counter the revelations made by the blogger.

Some fans of the Ojuelegba crooner who have been taking sides on different social media platforms eagerly await a response from him, wondering if there is any truth in the blogger’s responses, one of which indicated that Wizkid does not own his Lekki home, as claimed.

Linda had also alleged that Wizkid got his Porsche automobile on hire purchase.

While many have continued to criticise Linda and Wizkid for their behavior, popular filmmaker and critic, Charles Novia lent his voice in a recent post to the ongoing imbroglio between the two celebrities. He spoke about the expectations of the audience from them both as public figures, alluding to the fact that they had fallen far below the expectations of their fans.

He said: ”This means that while some measure of success demands some form of etiquette from Linda, now living among the elites, same is not expected ( even if demanded) from Wizkid.”

Speaking further, Novia explained that Wizkid’s reaction was expected, considering his background, but that much more was expected from Linda considering her present position. He said, “Wizkid’s reaction was true-to-type. He’s a street kid. A Surulere or Ojuelegba product and he’s not expected to have any chill. Unlike Linda, who’s also from a poor background and has some understanding of the rules of the streets of Surulere. Wizkid is a supposed nouveau rich kid whose fame and fortune are grounded in the music of his streets.”

Novia was quick to add that although Linda was only doing her job, it was tactlessly and vengefully done. As he put it, “Putting up the post yesterday of the eviction notice given to Wizkid was perhaps an intuitive gossip obligation she felt she had to share; after all she’s a known gossip blogger. But it was tactlessly done and exposed an underlying beef which was waiting for an opportunity to get back.”

Continuing his post, Novia advised Linda that the power of music in the present age, and Wizkid’s cult status in the African music industry makes it difficult, if not impossible to win a war of words with him, as Chief Dele Momodu can attest to. Saying that all Wizkid need do is to set some abusive words to music, and the rest is history. In the end, he advised the two cult figures to bury the hatchet.

Some fans of both Ikeji and Wizkid have continued to voice their disapproval of both parties’ unruly behavior. A fan of Ikeji said, ”I am disappointed that an influential person like Ikeji can descend so low by engaging in war of words with a younger Wizkid. I can’t believe that an older and respected woman like Linda Ikeji can stoop so low to give that child the time of the day”. Another said he had lost respect for both, and it would require them to compete for his respect, saying, “I don’t know why they are displaying ignorance and acting immature”. Another Wizkid fan expressed her contempt stating that both parties needed a reality check saying, “Both of them are just displaying an act of foolishness and it is amazing how ignorant they are, and I am really disappointed. Wizkid, who is my star, is feeling bitter because his fake life has been revealed to us, the fans. Continuing she said, ”He needs to get his act together and not embarrass us.”
