Well, celebrities are just like normal people! They get involved in messy breakups, family drama and of course friendships that don’t last forever.
Friendship plagued with egos, self-obsession which ends up being explosive when there’s a fall out.
From friends to ‘frenemies’, below are 5 Nigerian celebrities whose falling out we can never ever forget!
1. 9ice and Ruggedman
Even though they’ve settled their beef and are now releasing a song together, 9ice and Ruggedman had one of the biggest fall outs the entertainment industry has ever seen.
Six years ago, it was alleged that Ruggedman had an affair with 9ice’s former wife, Toni Payne. The controversy became more heated when 9ice dropped his single titled ‘Once beaten, twice shy’, which had a theme of betrayal from people he loved.
The duo who were once good pals started making headlines when they reportedly stopped speaking to each other.
2. Tonto Dikeh and Toyin Lawani
This two used to be good pals back then. Infact they were one time bffs before they proceeded to drag each other’s names in the mud!
Their epic fall out began when Tonto Dikeh took to her Twitter page to publicly denounce Lawani’s Tiannah’s Styling. Toyin who used to be Tonto’s former stylist then accused the actress of giving the credit for her stylings to her friend, Jeremiah Ogbodo, and threatened to sue whoever took credit for her work.
The two ended up exchanging words on social media and would barely cross each other’s paths.
3. Wizkid and Skales
Wizkid and Skales had a really big ‘cat fight’ over his hit song ‘Azonto’. Skales claimed to have written ‘Azonto’ for Wizkid when he was still with E.M.E but Wizkid swiftly responded to Skales which led to a feud between the two with Skales girlfriend even wading into the fight.
The star boy denied Skales claims and even said Skales was looking for cheap publicity to promote his album.
4. Dammy Krane and Wizkid
Wizkid again? Apparently Dammy Krane hinted that Wizkid used materials that were not originally his and did not credit the actual owners.
Their falling out led to an infamous club fight in the early hours of Friday, January 15, 2016 at Lagos night club Quilox where Wizkid allegedly threw a bottle at Dammy Krane cutting his lips.
5. Don Jazzy and Wande Coal
Wande Coal departed Mavin Records, unceremoniously to setup his record label, Black Diamond Entertainment, where he made hit songs such as ‘Baby Hello’, ‘My Way’,
But there were cracks in his relationship with Don Jazzy, which was made public when Wande Coal released his ‘Babyface’ song in November 2013, and Don Jazzy went public, claiming to originally own his song. Don Jazzy also released his version of Babyface, with many fans taking sides and branding Wande Coal a thief.
