A recent video footage showing popular Nigerian Afro-pop music sensation, Wizkid, exchanging pleasantries with Afro-pop music legend, Innocent Idibia, a.k.a 2baba during a social gathering, “Wilmer” album listening party, in Lagos, has sparked debate on Twitter.
The debate followed a comment by a twitter user, @IdBoss2 who tweeted the video clip and called Wizkid a proud fellow. He also accused Wizkid of arrogance for allegedly greeting his elder in the music industry, 2baba, ‘in what he described as disrespectful manner.’
According to him, “When we say Wizkid is arrogant, his fans will call us haters. How can you greet 2 baba like that To even see that he looked away after shaking pato, then 2 baba had to stretch his hand to shake him. SMH”
In the video footage, the ‘Fever’ crooner was seen greet 2Baba, his wife, Annie and Patoranking.
Wizkid is seen shake 2Baba’s hand with his two hands and even gave a bow before leaving but the twitter user, @IdBoss2, would not accept this as he said Wizkid looked away and that 2Baba had to stretch his hand before Wizkid shook hands with him.
When we say Wizkid is arrogant, his fans will call us haters. How can you greet 2 baba like that🤦

But other Twitter users soon descended on the Twitter user as they disagreed with his position.

Wizkid disrespected 2baba with the way he greeted him. Okay. Are you done? Now get out of my sight. Wizkid should roll on the floor from here to Ebonyi even after bowing down his head twice for 2baba right? Mtchewww!

Wizkid is trending for not responding to 2 baba’s outstretched hand in like 2secs
As opposed to removing his clothes and prostrating for him
Must be nice having to pretend wizkid is not bigger than 2baba
