Nigerian rapper, MI Abaga disagreed with Akon after the latter addressed Wizkid as his little brother. MI stated that Wizkid has gone too far in his career to be addressed as ‘little’.
Akon posted a picture of himself and Wizkid, which he took on stage at Afronation Ghana. He captioned the photo “Me and my lil bro @wizkidayo at AFRONATION Ghana!”
The caption didn’t sit well with MI Abaga who urged Akon to step the little brother talk down, noting that Wizkid’s is a little brother to none.
“I have an opinion: few African artists in diaspora actually did anything to REALLY help the movement.. as a fan of Wizkid (which I am) I don’t see Wiz as lil bro to Akon.. he has overcome larger obstacles to accomplish way more (in my eyes).. In my opinion Wiz is lil bro to none”.
