Wizkid can’t write his story without mentioning my name – Samklef


Music producer, Samklef, has once again stated that the story of pop star, Wizkid, will not be complete without mentioning his name.

Samklef, who is also a singer, however, says he is no longer bitter with the more popular ‘Ojuelegba’ singer whom he had a major beef with in 2014.

Speaking in an interview with Punch, the producer said “I am part of Wizkid’s history whether he likes it or not.

“He cannot write his story without mentioning my name. I have always respected Wizkid’s hustle from day one. He has a strong will.”

The relationship between the two turned sour after the release of Wizkid’s debut album, Superstar, in 2011.

Apart from calling the singer ungrateful, Samklef, who worked on many songs on the album, said in an interview that Wizkid smoked too much weed.

Both men seem to have put all that behind them now.

“So far so good, we have settled the misunderstanding between us in 2015 after one of my trips from America,” Samklef continued in the Punch interview.

“We are all busy now, so I am no longer worried about whatever people say because, at the end of the day, we all have our journey in life and success is the most important thing.

“I am no longer bitter at Wizkid; the past is gone.”

Apart from Wizkid, Samklef has also worked with Skales, Durella, Ice Prince, Olamide, Sunny Neji and others.

He recently signed a two-year production deal with KonLive, owned by Senegalese-American rap star, Akon.
