UPDATED: Kemi Olunloyo Schools Popular American DJ Who Defamed Wizkid

(This post has been updated. CHECK BELOW FOR THE UPDATE)

Earlier today a video went viral that had a popular American DJ, DJ Ciphasounds, saying Nigerian Afrobeats superstar was not known on the streets of America


Kemi Olunloyo, Nigerian Journalist has swiftly responded, as typical of her, with facts. Read her Instagram post below and tell us what you think.

WIZKID IS A MAINSTREAM ARTIST! DRAKE @champagnepapi WILL BE OPENING FOR HIM SOON SEF. These guys are making the same mistake with Drake and @wizkhalifa #TheWeeknd. As much as I love and promoted Drake and other artists on my famous music blog #HipHossip, these guys are talking nonsense.

I was doing promo PR for Khalifa @warnerbrosentertainment records when he DECLINED to open for Drake. He wanted to build his own brand singlehandedly. We all cautioned him but look at #WizKhalifa today. He didn’t wanna ride on anyone. Stop overrating one artist against the other😠😠😠🎶 I lived 32 yrs in the 🇺🇸 5 yrs in 🇨🇦 Grammy Judge twice in both countries, music publicist for Starboy’s first show in Toronto 2012 with EME, even booked him @mtvcanada last minute. Nobody knows R.O.A.D DJCity. Never heard of these guys. Wizkid is NEVER EVER to be compared to Sean Paul, two different genres, Wizzus is more popular globally, Sean is old skool 90’s, no damn comparison. These DJ’s are trying to use Ayo for clout. Imagine saying Drake made him known. Ayo that met Beiber on that 2012 Canadian trip and Drake was out of town and missed him. Even when I booked him at MTV Canada and their flight was late, MTV music director Dave was actually begging me to reschedule him. Nonsense talk with these mumus. Follow #hnnmusic. I’ve been in music journalism 12/25 yrs in journalism. @wizkidayo get in here. @bankywellington remember this trip? Complete nonsense😠 #IyaNaira®🇳🇬

UPDATE: The corrections are thanks to Kemi Olunloyo. The said American rapper is actually a local Britsh rapper that lives in the US.
