Upcoming Artist named Wisekid has been accused of making 30 million Naira from Wizkid – MADE IN LAGOS ALBUM that he cloned
Up-and-coming artiste with the moniker WiseKid has come under scrutiny after it has been revealed that he illicitly profited by uploading songs of Afro-beats star, Wizkid, on multiple streaming platforms.
It has been alleged that the singer has raked the sum of 30million naira monthly since October 2020 by uploading Wizkid’s recent album, Made In Lagos on Apple Music, Amazon, Shazam, and Tidal.
An album uploaded by Wise Kid on the streaming platforms is titled “Lasgidi Made,” an alteration of the original “Made In Lagos” by Wizkid. But despite the change in title, all the songs contained in the album are songs by Wizkid, including Essence, Ginger, Grace, No Stress.
Wise Kid also uses similar social media handles to Wizkid. On Twitter, he is @wisekidaya, whereas Wizkid goes by @wizkidayo.
Wise Kid drew attention to himself after he tweeted a now-deleted screenshot of an Apple Music analytics which he captioned “On God.” The screenshot showed that in the past 4 weeks he’s enjoyed 9.3 million views, 133.6k average daily listeners, and 1.2k song purchases.
