Wizkid’s Manager, Sunday Are is finally speaking on the scuffle he had with Triple MG Artiste, Tekno at the One Music Festival held in Dubai.
Recall many days back, there were reports of a violent clash between Wizkid and Davio, and many witnessess present at the festival gave different versions of the event that transpired.
Recall later, there were also reports that the scuffle began after Tekno “disrespected” Wizkid’s manager, Sunday Are by offering him a handshake rather than prostrating…
Wizkid’s manager, Sunday reportedly got pissed by “the handshake offer”, and then proeeded to punch Tekno. Davido who was present at the event then heard of the assault, then rushed to Tekno’s defense, this of course triggered the viral fight between his team and Wizkid’s.
To confirm this version of events, Davido took to his twitter to write;
TEKNO !!! I GOT UR BACK G!!! NO ONE WILL EVER TOUCH U AGAIN!!!
Now, in a new interview with PUNCH, Sunday Are is addressing the whole drama… though he didn’t explain how tekno disrespected him, but then he said no artiste had ever disrespected him the way Tekno did.
Asked why he doesn’t want to say what exactly Tekno did to disrespect him, he said it is“because if I speak, the industry would not be happy about what happened.”
However, he wishes the young star well in his endeavours. Read what he told Punch:
“Initially I did not want to say anything about the issue I had with Tekno at the One Africa Music Fest because if I speak, the industry would not be happy about what happened. I just want to be silent on the matter because what actually happened was more or less like the quarrel of a father and son in the house. When a father has a problem with his child in a house, that is when the child will do something that is not good, you scold him and it ends there.
“What people have been reading was not actually what happened. When these young boys in the industry act sometimes, it makes me remember the Yoruba proverb which says, ‘a child can have as many clothes as an elder but he can never have as many rags as the elder.’
“Also, what an elderly person sees while seated, a child cannot see it even if he climbs a skyscraper. With all due respect to every artiste in Nigeria both old and young, what happened on that day has never happened before. No artiste in Nigeria has ever disrespected me.”
“Every artiste in this country knows that I am always there for them and I also try my best not to disrespect any one of them.”
“They can all testify to this. I always wish every music artiste the best because I stand for African entertainment. I have always wished them the best including Tekno; my happiness is for him to grow higher than he is today.”
