(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Nigerians on Monday slammed Grammy-winning Nigerian singer, Ayodeji Balogun, better known as Wizkid, after he disrespected music executive, Don Jazzy while reacting to a shade fired at him by Mavin signee, Ladipoe.

Ladipoe, a rapper signed to Don Jazzy’s label, recently berated Wizkid for his controversial “hip hop is dead” comment.
