Popular singer, Davido has lent his voice to the ongoing battle of words between UK based Nigeria artiste, Naria Marley and music legend, Rugged man. lt all started 2 weeks ago,after Naria shared a message, which tried to justify internet fraudsters aka Yahoo boys, saying that it is only a payback for what their ancestors suffered during the transatlantic slave trade.
His comment didn’t sit well with Ruggedman,who pointed out the wrong.
Ever since, the two have been trending on this topic. While Naria was for it, ruggedman was against.
The latest is over how Naria called Ruggedman out as an artiste that is no longer relevant .
Davido responded by advising both parties to put an end to the feud. According to him,”yes, Nigerians are known with fraud, l understand Ruggedman’s point ,he is a legend that I grew up listening to his music.I think I have seen him once or twice.I love and respect you and nobody should say you are not popping anymore,but at the same time , we must know that Nigerians are sensitive people.” On Naria he said, l love you but we should learn how to respect our legends.I know we are young and we sing based on what we are seeing, I have made mistakes in my music career that sometimes, when I look back , l am like what was l thinking back then.
Nigerian music is everywhere around the world right now, our music stars are doing exploits every where. I travel around the world and I see what our music is doing, Tiwa Savage, Burma, Yemi alade,Zaltan and everyone else is doing well.
I have seen people not doing legit jobs helping people, while the one doing legit jobs don’t help no body ,I love them all.
We should not be throwing shades at this time .peace”
