Wizkid calls Reekado Banks ‘clout animal’ for announcing new song amid #EndSARS protest


Singer Wizkid has dissed his industry colleague, Reekado Banks, for scheduling the release of their collaborative single amid the ongoing protests against police brutality in Nigeria.

Wizkid, real name Ayo Balogun, had put off the release of ‘Made In Lagos’, his next album previously scheduled for October 15, as the agitation for the reform of Nigeria’s police dominated the social space.

Reekado Banks announced the release date of a single he recorded with Wizkid in a tweet on Thursday.

He tagged Wizkid and used the EndSARS hashtags in the tweet.

“Out of control gbedu must drop. This one with my brother @wizkidayo. ‘Omo Olomo’ midnight dropping. Still on the matter! #EndSARS #EndPoliceBrutality,” Reekado Banks wrote.


In a now-deleted tweet, Wizkid said he didn’t believe Banks wanted to put out a song at such time.

He also described Banks as a “fool” and “clout animal”.

“Delete this, dude. Can’t believe you’re doing this at a time like this. Old song. #EndSARS fool,” Wizkid charged.



Wizkid who have actively participated in the EndSARS protest had dissed President Mohammadu Buhari for speaking of US President Donald Trump instead of the protest.
