Following the reactions, Wizkid went on to broke-shame Nigerian rappers, calling them “dumb f**ks” as well.

DJ Tunez, the American-based DJ who has served as Wizkid’s official DJ for the past five years and is known as a core member of the Starboy Entertainment family as well as the Grammy-nominated singer’s right-hand man, has a different take on the situation.

Taking to his social media on Monday, December 5, 2022, DJ Tunez opined that the rap conversation was being taken too far and that Wizkid wasn’t talking about Nigerian rappers when he made the initial interview. Tunez went to urge the public that the primary focus should be on pushing African music.
