For the second week running, popular singer Ayodele Balogun, aka Wizkid, has been at the receiving end of criticism from music fans. The young man’s ‘offence’ is his response to a fan, who had dared to correct him for making a grammatical error in a posting on Instagram.
In answer to the fan’s tweet, Wizkid had written on his Twitter handle: “Broke people always think they have an opinion.” Instantly, other fans of the artiste had pelted him with tweets, condemning his action. One of them reminded him that he owed his success to the likes of the ‘broke’ fan and it was wrong not to appreciate him.
Commenting on a popular blog, some of them, however, engaged in an argument over the matter. While some wondered if it was right to have corrected Wizkid’s grammatical blunder publicly, others noted that the artiste’s response had exposed a ‘shocking’ side of him that they never knew.
Whether he was publicly corrected or not, I think his Fans deserve an Apology. This could be done and well packaged by Wizxy’s Publicist.
