‘Wizkid and I are original creators of new afrobeat sound’ – Samklef

Nigerian music producer and singer, Samuel Oguachuba, popularly known as Samklef, has claimed that he and Wizkid are the “original creators of the new afrobeat sound”.

The ‘Noni’ crooner stated this via his Twitter handle on Thursday in reaction to the ongoing supremacy battle in the Nigerian music industry.

He said anyone who doubts his claim should consult Google.

Sharing a throwback picture of himself and Wizkid, he wrote, “The original creators of the new Afrobeat sound! Nack ur head for wall when u see this post. Samklef x wizkid. Go do ur home work guys. Google is there to help u. Aw! Aw!” (sic)

In another tweet, Samklef countered Davido’s claim that he and Wizkid were the first young Nigerian artistes to hit stardom.

The producer said Wizkid and Olamide were actually the kids that first blew up in the Nigerian music industry.

Sharing a picture of Wizkid and Olamide, Samklef wrote, “The two street kids that started the game. Others joined them. Samklef dey talk am as e be.”
