A few days ago Dammy Krane  unleashed a string of abuse on Wizkid, calling him a b**ch and thief. He never revealed what Wiz stole from him until now.

The Hypertek artiste took to Twitter to apologize to Wizzy, saying he “looks up to him”, he then went to add that Wizkid had stolen some his most notable slangs & content from him, after he (Krane) had recorded songs in Wizkid’s home studio.

Krane cited some examples such “Park ,reverse baby pull over” from the Kcee  & Wizkid’s Pull Over, as well as the chorus & melody of Wizkid’s “Baba Nla”.

#OscarsSoWhite What The Internet Had To Say About Not One Black Person Getting Nominated For Oscars 2016

CYsTHq4UMAIVpvX

A few hours ago this year’s Oscar Awards nominees were announced and just like last year there wasn’t a single black actor nominated in any of the 20 slots in the four acting categories.

The blatant racism of the Oscar panel is obvious for everyone to see and many people (black & white) took to Twitter to vent about the lack of colour in this year’s nominations.

Interestingly a black woman is the president of the Academy. Cheryl Boone Isaacs has worked to foster more diversity in the Academy but it appears the powers that be won’t let her.
