Amidst the tussle of the rap genre and Wizkid‘s diss to his colleagues, netizens dig up old tweet of the self-acclaimed popsy begging the famous rapper, M.I, for attention.
This comes following the saga about rap being a dead music in the entertainment industry stirred by Wizkid.
A screenshot from 2010, however, revealed how Wizzy pleaded to be recognized by the hottest rapper during the time, M.I Abaga.
The Grammy award-winner declared in the tweet that he was the biggest fan of the rapper.
“@MI_Abaga hello sir..my name is wizkid..nd am an upcoming artiste….I’ve met u b4 bt not sure u remb me..am a bigg fan sir!..,” the tweet read.
“That’s what life is all about. They’ll beg you when they’re down and puff up when they’re up,” a social media user wrote in reaction.
Another user added, “We all know back then when this tweet was teeeted the rap industry in Nigeria was epic but now it’s just there. But I still think wizkid should have said it in a nicer way.”
