Nigerians have taken to social media to react to a controversy generated by the way Wizkid greeted 2baba at Patoranking’s Album Launch party.
In an edited version of the video that previously circulated, Wizkid appeared to have initially snubbed a handshake from 2baba before finally shaking the iconic artiste.
Some commentators had described Starboy’s alleged action as disrespectful to 43-year-old 2baba.

However, many Nigerians took to social media to react to the incident.

Check out the actual video of how Wizkid greeted 2baba. Having bowed himself twice to greet, what else do you guys want? Lick his shoes? These guys are busy having fun while we waste our data promoting their next songs. pic.twitter.com/FGWBKBDP6P

Were you all expecting Wizkid to kneel and greet 2baba? Or take off his clothes and prostrate before you guys call that respect?
Shook him like thrice and even hailed him again when he was walking away. That one never do? 🤦🏽♂️

2baba did not expect Wizkid to prostrate. Some of you carrying this thing on your head will be fine. Thanks for promoting them free of charge they’re my favs 😄👏🏽
