Nigerians slam Drake for leaving out Wizkid in video shoot for ‘One Dance’

Canadian rapper cum singer Drake sent tongues wagging when he was spotted in South Africa for the video shoot of his track titled ‘One Dance’ without Starboy honcho, Wizkid.
Eyebrows were raised by close watchers who are going critical especially with the fact that two other artistes who featured in the song Wizkid and Filipino singer Kyla were not spotted on the set of the video shoot for the song.
Drake who confirmed he was actually in the country in a post on Instagram, shared photos of his video crew and the Material Culture, who are part of the ‘izikhothane’ dance-battle movement by black youths in the townships of South Africa.
The obvious absence of Wizkid sent Nigerians on the overdrive on social media who queried Drake for not tagging along with Wizkid for the video shoot of the song which according to reports was co-written by the “Ojuelegba” crooner.
Below are comments of some aggrieved fans of Wizkid;
“Wizkid, come hear o, they are talking your matter o. People should chill nao, does it mean all the scenes have been shot in South Africa alone? Drake will definitely lose me as a fan if this is true. Why won’t you put our Naija brother in your video?” A fan of Wizkid said.
Another angry fan spilled his guts when he said Drake was making the video shoot a one man show; “Hell no if Wizzy helped in writing the song he should be in it, not fair for it to be a one man show, depends on what they have both agreed on together. Just my opinion…This will be war if Drake doesn’t include Wizzy in “One Dance video” o! How far na?!”
