Fast-rising Nigerian musician, Omah Lay recently put himself up for drags when he shared images of Burna Boy and Wizkid, projecting them as the two great artistes he looks up to.
Undoubtedly, Burna Boy and Wizkid are worth emulating due to their hard work and art that extends notably beyond ordinary limits. A few days ago, the two won their first-ever Grammy at the 64th Grammy Award show held in the United State of America.
As part of celebrating his favorite artists over the win, Omah Lay shared a tweet with images of the duo saying Burna’s photo is his home screen whilst Wizkid is his lock screen.
The tweet sparked a huge deliberation on social media where he was lambasted for his actions.
According to Daniel Reghan, a popular Twitter commentator, it is wrong for Omah Lay to pick sides in the industry because he is an upcoming artist who hasn’t cemented his place in the industry therefore it was needless for him to declare his support to the duo to trend.
Another follower of his expressed disgust in him for disregarding Davido in his tweet. Others also swore never to listen to his songs ever again.
