Fans were thrilled by the recent meeting in a nightclub between multi-award-winning Afrobeats singer Wizkid and the manager of Davido, singer Asa Asika. Given that Asa had previously appeared in Wizkid’s music video for “Holla at Your Boy” in the early stages of his career, it was something of a reunion. In addition, because Wizkid had recently revealed that he would be embarking on an unexpected tour with Davido, the two’s presence in a club at the time sparked online comments.
One of the most talked-about subjects in the Nigerian music industry is the long-running “beef” between the two artists. The Wizkid vs. Davido saga has been going on for years, and the fans had split into two groups depending on which artists they supported. The Wizkid-Asa meeting had a lighthearted effect on the Wizkid-Davido scenario. Given that Asa is Davido’s manager, some fans assumed it was an indication that the tour would indeed go on.
The subject of the tour had been hinted at a few times, which came alive again after Wizkid had announced the joint tour to begin after he was through with his “More Love, Less Ego” tour. Before now, Davido had confirmed in an interview that he and Wizkid had planned to work together, though it never materialized until now.
