A young upcoming artiste Wisekid whose real name is Hosea Yohanna, has finally spoken after being accused of music fraud over his duplication of superstar singer, Wizkid’s album.
Wisekid had been playing a fast one on many unsuspecting Wizkid fans on Apple music by uploading a replica of ‘Made in Lagos’ album, leading to a diversion of some traffic to himself.
To fool people in a cunning way, he named his own album “Lasgidi Made” with a replica tracklist off Wizkid’s album thereby hoodwinking unsuspecting music lovers.
According to Africa Facts, Wisekid has been raking in N30 million monthly off the album which has gone on to amass a total of 9.3 million streams since October 2020 that he uploaded the replicated ‘Lasgidi Made’.
