Barely two weeks into the new year and it already feels like we have had enough celebrity gossip and palaver to last us a lifetime. Starting from the Davido vs. baby mama/Dele Momodu social media war, which began in the last few days of 2015Â andÂ reached its peak in the first week of 2016, to the Olamide vs. Don Jazzy Headies stage battle on January 1 (of all days) â€“ here are the top five celebrity feuds, as compiled by Naij.comâ€™s Justin Ugonna, that have categorised the new yearÂ already as the year of celebrity beefs!Â
- Davidoâ€™s babymama (public) dramaÂ
At the beginning of the year, fans thought the dispute between Davido and his baby mama Sophia Momodu was subsiding, we didnâ€™t know it was actually going to get hotter. Last week, on January 7, Davido (David Adeleke) and his father Deji Adeleke went to the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) after Sophie Momodu filed a petition against the two of them.The pair made a statement regarding the baby mama issue.
According to Whistle Nigeria, Davido accused his baby mama of lying to him about her age and educational qualification. He also stated that Sophie Momodu slept with a friend of his fatherâ€™s.
- Olamide vs. Don Jazzy #LeaveTrashForLAWMA
YBNL boss, Olamide and Mavinâ€™s Boss, Don Jazzy who are known to be really good friends started the new year with a beef that went really due to the fact that it was the first beef of the year as a matter of fact it was at the headies award show which took place on the 1stÂ of January, the first day of the first month of the year. This beef was as a result of an award category (THE NEXT RATED CATEGORY) which involved members of the two parties as nominees, after voting had ended, the winner was announced at the show and â€œREEKADO BANKSâ€ Mavin Superstar Emerged as the winner. For some reasons Olamide did not fully agree to the decision made by the Headies so he decided to pull a Kanye, he went up to the stage and made comments that showed he did not agree to the decision. Later on Don Jazzy also had words for Olamide.it didnâ€™t just end there, later that night Olamide took it to twitter to pour out his anger. What a sad way to start the year.
- Cynthia Morgan mocks Davido on Snapchat
While people were still trying to understand what really happened between Olamide and Don jazzy. Cynthia Morgan brewed up another beef between her and the HKN boss, Davido. She Â went on snapchat to curse at Davido because he endorsed Lil Kesh as his favourite artiste on the controversial Next Rated category, which Cynthia Morgan was equally nominated for. On the other hand Davido had no other thing to say than to wish the singer well.
- Dammy Krane curses out Wizkid
In the series of rant, Dammy Krane expressed his displeasure on his lack of tolerance for thieves and accused Wizkid of stealing something from him.This accusation practically put the whole industry in a state of shock as he didnâ€™t state exactly what the Starboy ac Wizkid had stolen from him, he only ended his rant with â€˜Gbetititi. On the other hand we havenâ€™t heard anything from Wizkid so we are still yet to know what he acytually stole from Dammy.
- Tanzanians chase Tekno offÂ Instagram
TripleMG singer, Tekno, after a performanceÂ in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania to celebrate the new year, Â posted a selfie of himself with a famous Tanzanian actress and model, Lulu Elizabeth Michael, on his Instagram page. The photo immediately went viral, with many thinking they had some sexual relationship.
The tone changed afterwards when the singerâ€™s Tanzanian fans bombarded his page with â€˜RIPâ€™. According to the comments, they claimed anyone who has intimate relations with Lulu dies mysteriously because she has been cursed and is very diabolical.They noted that a lot of her exes had died. And for this reason, Tanzanians wrote RIP on all Teknoâ€™s recent Instagram photos. When the fans refused to stop writing about his impending death, Tekno deleted all the photos.
