Nigerian music producer, Samuel Oguachuba popularly known as Samklef, has given his two-cents on why Wizkid has been bragging on social media lately.
A while ago, the Grammy-award winning artiste took to Snapchat to disclose that he was paid a million dollars to perform at the Rolling Loud concert in Toronto – a move a lot of people called bragging and questioned why he divulged that information because it’s a sharp contrast from his quiet and reserved lifestyle.
In an apparent reaction to this, Samklef went live on his Instagram page to share his perceived opinion on why Wizkid disclosed his earnings.
According to him, the 31-year-old singer is being pressured by his colleague in the entertainment industry, Burna Boy, who recently called himself the highest paid musician in Nigeria.
He asserted that Wizkid has been paid millions of dollars for a show in the past but never thought it necessary to post it online, and suddenly started doing it after Burna Boy made the claim.
Samklef concluded by saying there is “pressure” in the industry and Wizkid is being affected by it.

After Burna Boy’s “Twice as Tall” album won the “Best Global Music Album” at the 63rd Grammy Awards, Samklef took to the micro-blogging platform to share a news headlines from 2020 as evidence that he indeed saw it coming and prophesied it.
He dubbed himself “the prophet of our time” and asked to be given to credit for his prophecy.
In his words,
“Samklef the prophet of our time. November 10 2020 I said @burnaboygram was going to win the Grammy…today he won it.”
