Music producer, Samklef, has asked Seun Kuti to calm down on the Grammy banter.

Many believe that Seun Kuti, the son of Fela Kuti, has been taking jabs at Wizkid since he won a Grammy.

By featuring on Beyonce’s ‘Lion King’ album, Wizkid picked a Grammy award. He was not the only Nigerian to win an award, music counterpart Burna Boy also picked one.


Seun Kuti took to Instagram to indirectly ‘yab Wizkid’ for the award. According to him, “Album no be music video”.

Seun Kuti is popular for being outspoken and controversial with his views.

“Today is the day for the ignorant. I told you. I am the chairman of haters. You don’t want to believe I will prove it today. I am even more petty than you jobless people all over my page.

“I am a Nigerian. I grew up in KALAKUTA and also an ARSENAL FAN. Una never plenty reach. This one na dragging? You can’t drag me because I no dey una hand like una fav yeyebrities. Una go hear word today.

“E be like say una wan cry. #getthesax#letsgetignorant#nosensethursday. Also I want to see all of una teacher, you can buy data but u don’t know the difference between album and video?,” Seun wrote on Instagram.
