Looks like yet another person in the music industry isn’t happy with Wizkid and has taken to calling out the pop star publicly!

In the last 3 months Wizkid has been called out by 3 people, first it was pop rival Davido, then the producer of his debut album Samklef who called him a “disgusting person”, followed by Saeon who put him on blast for not helping to promote her video after she paid him N1.5 M to feature and now Sarz had joined the growing list of people who have an issue with Wizzy!

Sarz is the producer responsible for a number of Wizzy’s most recent hits including ‘Jaiye Jaiye’.

So here’s the gist on what led to their beef.

It would appear after Sarz gave him hits like Jaiye Jaiye, Wizzy did a 180 and began working more with producers Maleek Berry and Legendury Beatz. Things reportedly did not improve when Alex Adegbenro, Saeon’s former manager tried to explain why the R & B singer (who’d paid the star boy N1.5 Million to feature on her single “Boogie Down”) was beefing Wizzy. He said,

And I remember he (Wizkid) gave us a list of producers he could work with, he said it was either, Samklef, Sarz or Maleek Berry and we picked Sarz and then when he heard the beat Sarz made, he didn’t like it, so he called Sarz and was like ‘dude, you know my new sound, why do you keep making beats like this. So we went back the second time and Maleek Berry just laced a beat and the song happened like a freestyle

All this may have led to Sarz calling out Wizkid 3 days ago in a twitter interview. When Sarz was asked if he would still work with Wizkid, his reply was, “No Lol, I don’t have his time anymore”. When someone else pointed out that he had produced Wizzy’s Hennessy Artistry duet with 2Face Idibia, Sarz replied saying,“Because 2baba begged me”. Another twitter user aked what Wizkid did to incur his wrath and he said, “Hmmnn so much I can’t say it all”.  He also added that Wizkid “will have to beg me because it was painful”.
