Banky W might Have just Put an End to the Rivalry between Wizkid and Davido!

For the most part of their careers, there has been this bitter, never-ending public feud between two of Nigeria’s biggest musical talents, Wizkid and Davido. It’s been much-publicised and quite distasteful to say the least,  no thanks to fans’ insatiable appetite for celebrity gossip.

One of those was actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde who, in a lengthy Instagram post talked about the challenges she faced as a teenager following her father’s untimely death, as well as the stigmatisation and sexual harassments she had to endure upon choosing to work in the entertainment industry.  She wrote: “On today’s girl child day I’ll do an unusual post true to me.
