I started playing Wizkid songs in 2012 – Cipha Sounds blasts Nigerians (video)
The American DJ, Cipha Sounds who mentioned that Wizkid is not known in the United States of America, has blasted Nigerians coming to his page to call him out.
The DJ in his reaction through a video stated that he is the first American DJ to start playing Wizkid’s songs on the radio and he has been doing that since 2012.
He, however, cleared the air on what he said about Wizkid and claimed Nigerians and other Wizkid fans across the world only misunderstood him.
In the video, he said Nigerians coming to his page need to apologize to him as what he meant was that Wizkid has not actually penetrated the Main Stream America and not that the artist is not known in the country:
“Fvck Out of Here and stop Behaving Retarded, I Have Been Supporting Wizkid Playing His Songs In The US Since 2012, I Deserve An Apology From Nigerians Who Have Been Coming to My Instagram Account To Insult Me”
