Wow, there are a whole lot of artistes who have it out for Wizkid this year.
The Oyo State-born singer Seun Oni aka ‘Saeon’ is currently not happy with Wizkid. The singer, who has a song titled ‘Boogie down’ featuring Wizkid apparently paid Wizkid a whopping sum of N1.5million to get the Star boy on the song and video.
Despite the money paid however, she’s pissed with the fact that Wizkid couldn’t even acknowledge her by posting something about the song on his timeline and when she tweeted at him, he refused to do as little as retweet it.
Expressing her anger, Saeon shared a picture on her Instagram handle that reads:‘Folks be like I never charge artistes for features, but I’m 1.5m short and I couldn’t even get a retweet, anyway it’s turn by turn’.
When she was asked, Saeon declined to comment on the issue saying:‘It’s sad but I’ll rather not talk about it’.
Sources from Saeon’s camp revealed that ‘Wizkid has not been responding well to Saeon, he doesn’t even pick her calls and she’s really angry about it despite all the money he was paid for the song.’ In July 2014, Saeon became the first artiste to be signed to Baseline Music led by Howie T.
The singer officially dropped her EP titled ‘I AM SAEON – THE EP’ today. The Extended Play is a body of works that gives a true depiction of Saeon’s alluring persona and unique song writing style while also engaging listeners in its melodic array and perfect delivery.
In her words:‘I am extremely excited about this project , I AM SAEON encompasses what and who i truly am.I hope many can relate to me through this body of work. I had an amazing time working with OF A KIND Creatives in order to tell a story through each photo and am delighted to present them to you.’
The EP is highlighted by the new single produced by Sarz, Dogado, which is currently enjoying radio airplay and is steadily finding its way up music charts across country.
Other songs on the EP include ‘It wont stop’, ‘Friends with benefits’ and ‘Awada erekere’.
