Soulja Boy, an American rapper, has sparked outrage on social media after threatening Nigerian Afrobeat singer Wizkid with death. The rapper went on a protracted rage in a series of now-deleted tweets in the late hours of February 24 and early hours of February 25. He mocked Wizkid and threatened to kill him.
According to sources, the threats occurred after Wizkid was announced as the headliner for Rolling Loud in Germany, and his supporters mocked Soulja Boy on his Facebook page. Soulja Boy allegedly replied to a tweet comparing him to Wizkid and calling him “weird” thirteen years ago. Soulja Boy responded by mocking Wizkid.
A fan recently resurfaced the matter on Twitter, claiming that Wizkid owned Soulja Boy, which evidently enraged the musician. Soulja Boy responded by making death threats and promising to beat up Wizkid if they meet.
The threats have alarmed Wizkid’s fans, who have rushed to social media to express their concerns and tag the appropriate authorities. It is unclear whether authorities have taken any action against Soulja Boy in response to the threats.
Wizkid is a well-known Nigerian artist who has received several prizes, including the Grammys. He is well-known for his distinct sound and has worked with a number of major singers, including Beyonce, Drake, and Justin Bieber. In contrast, Soulja Boy is a well-known American rapper and record producer. He’s been in the music industry for almost a decade and has multiple successful songs to his credit.
It is anticipated that the disagreement between the two artists will be settled amicably, with no harm done to either party.
