There has been a social media war between the fans of Wizkid and fans of Ali Kiba after Wizkid won the MTV European Music Awards, Best African Act that was for Ali Kiba but given to the former as a mistake.
Yesterday November 10, the MTV EMA management reversed the decision and gave the award back to Ali Kiba who was the rightful winner. Ever since, fans of the Tanzanian singer have been sending abuses to Wizkid, which has prompted Ali Kiba to come and cease-fire.
“I am not happy with what has been going on, on social media. I have a great appreciation for @wizkidayo as a fellow artist and as a fan. I am very disappointed and saddened by the insults and attacks directed at him,” Said Ali Kiba on Instagram.
He went on to condemn the behavior and disowned fans who were throwing abuses and insults to Wizkid. Ali Kiba also Congratulated Wizkid upon the success he got this year throughout Africa as the MTV Africa Music Awards Artist of the Year, Afrima Awards Artist of the Year and very many other awards in Nigeria and outside Nigeria.
“I want to be very clear that I condemn this behavior and I believe none of my true fans are part of this irrational silliness and stupidity, as they know I have always had love for @wizkidayo
Drown out the noise from the haters bro, congratulations on your very successful year. Much love from my real fans and from Tanzania”
