Uche Ogbodo, the Nigerian actress, has apologized to Wizkid and his fanbase.
She apologized for criticizing Wizkid over the singer’s standpoint on rap music.
The actress took to her Instagram page, admitting that she might have overreacted to the news.
Wizkid had, in a recent interview, argued for the dominance of Afrobeats over other music genres.
The singer said he does not listen to rap music anymore because he no longer finds it interesting.
Wizkid also described the rap genre as “old, boring, tired and dead”.
His comment, however, did not sit well with many indigenous hip hop artistes and fans of rap music.
Ogbodo, in response, took to social media to call out Wizkid, stating that he had no “loyalty” to his people.
She also said Nigerians don’t like each other, adding that Davido wouldn’t have said what Wizkid said.
In a new development on Sunday, Uche Ogbodo came apologising.
“I wish to apologise to Wizkid and FC. Make Unah no vex. I think I overreacted yesterday over what I saw on the blogs,” she wrote via her Instastory.
Among those who have countered Wizkid’s viewpoint on rap is MI Abaga who insisted the genre is on the rise”.
Abaga, who is also a rapper himself, also gave a shout-out to his colleagues who he said are “winning”.
Oladips, the fast-rising rapper, also took a swipe at Wizkid while asking him if he had ever helped any rapper.
