I was at Rhythm and Wizkid used to carry speakers and he will be sent by DJs to buy Amala and he will do it, he was the studio rat, just help me play my song he will say. People look at him now and say he is arrogant not knowing the work he had put into this journey”.

Speaking further, she said “it is the same way people can look at me now and say I got it all easy but if you have been following my career, and seeing the hardwork I put in, you should ask me what I am doing with my life if by now I am not enjoying all I am enjoying now from my hardwork”.


Reacting to the statement, Wizkid via his Snapchat, questioned the sanity of Toke Makinwa accompanied by multiple funny emojis. He wrote: ‘Toke Makinwa, crase dey your head’.
