After female Nigerian singer, Seyi Shay declared boldly in an interview that Drake‘s ‘One Dance’ was actually Wizkid‘s song, she has received backlash from social media and now from Wizkid himself.
Wizkid had gotten a wind of the claim on social media and simply tweeted, ‘she lied’, referring to Seyi Shay.
Seyi Shay had said in her interview with Onstage TV: ‘It’s actually Wizkid’s song, it’s not Drake’s song. I don’t know if I can talk about this but Wizkid wrote it, Legendary Beatz did the beat and some other Nigerian producers produced it as an Afrobeats song and they stripped a lot of the music away and just left the rhythm’.

Even after Wizkid affirmed that what she said was not the truth, he went on to tweet this:
I appreciate everyone loving the sound right now. Thank u so much for your support. God bless us all.
