Since yesterday, PulseNG’s Osagie Alonge and his co-host on their weekly podcast show, LooseTalk Podcast, have been trending on Twitter they released an episode criticising Nigerian Afropop star Wizkid.
In the episode themed ‘What’s Your Shoe Size’, Osagie and co-hosts AOT2 and Steve Dede made to address the recent baby mama drama surrounding the popstar after he was called out Shola Ogudu, the mother of his first son Boluwatife.
Shola, sharing a number of screenshots of conversations between her and her baby daddy, made to expose the singer’s alleged neglect of his fatherly responsibilities, a claim also being made by his second baby mama Binta Diallo who accused the singer of failing to meet his child support obligation of $2000 for his son Ayo Jnr.
The LooseTalk podcast crew in their attempt to discuss the issue made very weighty allegations against Wizkid as they berated him for being too self-centred and not willing to take care of his baby. Osagie, the main host of the show went on to allege that Wizzy swindles managers and associates who have worked with him in the past, collects advance for shows which he doesn’t eventually turn up.
Osagz also said that Wizkid wasn’t a loyal person and has not carried along most of his day1’s who were with him from the start, mentioning producers names like Maleek Berry and Legendury Beatz whom he alleged were being owed money for their production and as such refused to produce for the StarBoy Boss.
Other allegations made by the crew were that the Singer is constantly on drugs and that he’s beefed Davido for so long as has tried to match up with the affluent lifestyle of the billionaire’s son, also being the reason Wande Coal didn’t make Davido’s first album. Osagie claimed Wizkid was ‘insecure’ and is also over 27-year old, alleging also that his previous management flipped his age to make him more attractive to young people.
No sooner has the over 3 hours podcast dropped before the backlash came. Friends, associates and fans of Wizkid came for the LooseTalk Giants as they are called, calling them out for spreading ‘false’ news about what they knew nothing about.
Rotimi Rudeboy, who is an associate of Wizkid and was alleged to have been abandoned by the star debunked all the claims made on the podcast, saying that Wizkid had been of great impact to his life.
