In celebrating the Nigerian artists who won, the ‘Duduke’ crooner excitedly wrote:
”Starboy and Burna E Definitely Choke!!!”
This did not sit well with a Twitter user who tweeted:
”Simi ending that tweet with e choke doesn’t really make sense sha. E be like shade.”
In her defence, the mother of one pointed out that she loves both Davido and Wizkid.
”Loool ffs I LOVE David and I LOVE Wiz. I was celebrating the winners and used the slang just as a SLANG. A friend said to remove it cos fans thought it was shade and so I did. It didn’t even occur to me at allll. WHAT WOULD BE THE POINT OF ME SHADING EITHER OF THEM?? To what end?”
