See Why Davido And Wizkid Fought In Dubai
The beef between Davido and Wizkid added a new twist with a physical confrontation in Dubai on Thursday, November 16th.
What was meant to be a venue to bring Africa’s biggest superstars together to perform and thrill their fans, turned into a wrestling bout in Dubai.
The shopping and tourist destination played host to a number of artists on November 16, 2017 for the One Africa Music Festival, with Davido and Wizkid listed as part of the performers for the night.
According to reports and a video, a fight broke out after Wizkid was assaulted by someone from Davido's crew.
Now the fight has been linked to a tweet by Davido where he said “TEKNO !!! I GOT UR BACK G!!! NO ONE WILL EVER TOUCH U AGAIN!!!”

The Dubai fight’s genesis has been linked to Tekno.
According to an eye witness who was backstage at the One Africa Music Festival in Dubai, Tekno extended his hands to shake Wizkid’s manager, Sunday Are. But the veteran artiste manager allegedly punched Tekno’s phone saying he doesn’t have respect, probably because he thinks he has done him a favour by allowing Wizkid jump on a song with him.
It was then reported that Tekno and his crew wanted to retaliate the insult but Ubi Franklin prevented anything from happening.
The eyewitness claims when Davido and his crew heard what had happened, they decided to ‘buy the fight’ and Wizkid was slapped in the process before a scuffle ensued between Lati on Davido’s camp and ‘small god’ on Wizkid’s camp, which is what people saw in the video of the ‘Davido Vs Wizkid Clash’ that has been circulating on the internet.
The just concluded Africa Music Awards(AFRIMA) and MTV European Music Awards(EMA) sparked a renewal of the beef between the stars, where both took home accolades.
Davido started by shading Wizkid over his 3 wins at the AFRIMA in an Instagram story post, where he called AFRIMA fake.
Wizkid then took to Twitter to continue his frog voice diss, where he put up a smiley of a frog and splash of water.
