DJ Magic Jay, a UK-based Jamaican disc jockey, claims that Grammy-winning Nigerian singer Wizkid slapped him at a London event in 2018.
The Jamaican claims that he went to greet the singer at Ycee’s concert at the 02 Academy in Islington, London, but the Starboy slapped his hand away.
This was revealed by the DJ during a recent interview with Ruggedman TV, which was hosted by legendary Nigerian rapper Ruggedy Baba.
The Jamaican, who described himself as a fan of Nigerian afrobeat music, explained that after introducing himself, he simply offered to shake Wizkid’s hand, but the singer seemed offended.
DJ Magic Said .
Ycee’s concert, I was in Islington at the 02, I walked in, I went to greet him [Wizkid], I said, ‘Hi, how are you doing, Wizkid? My name is Cool Magic Jay; a Jamaican guy who loves afrobeats’. I went to shake his hand and he slapped my hand away.
He said he would love to interview Wizkid to unravel why he acted the way he did.
