Samklef claims credit for Davido and Wizkid's reunion, calls out DJ Tunez
Renowned music producer, Samuel Oguachuba, popularly known as Samklef, has asserted that he played a pivotal role in orchestrating the recent reunion between Nigerian music heavyweights, Davido and Wizkid.
Taking to social media platform X on Sunday, December 17, Samklef attributed the reunion to his efforts and took the opportunity to call out DJ Tunez for allegedly taking credit for the meetup.
In a video shared by Samklef, DJ Tunez is seen disclosing how Davido approached him to facilitate a meeting with Wizkid. According to Samklef, he personally reached out to Wizkid to extend an invitation to Davido, strategically planning a public hangout to garner media attention.
The music producer emphasized that the reunion was part of a carefully devised strategy to generate buzz for their anticipated 2024 tour.
In a statement posted on social media, Samklef expressed his dissatisfaction with DJ Tunez, accusing him of falsely claiming credit for the orchestration of the high-profile meeting. Samklef urged DJ Tunez to acknowledge his role in bringing Davido and Wizkid together for the hangout.
In his words, "Why DJ tunes Dey lie say na him make wizkid and davido hang out. Na me gan gan SAMKLEF noni call wizkidayo make him invite davido make dem hang out so the media go see am. so we go fit start to the hype the tour next year. @dj_tunez give me my credit."
