Onome Onokohwomo, better known as Young6ix, a Nigerian hip-hop artist located in the United States, has criticized singer Davido for leaving him off of his list of the first generation of kids to become famous in the Nigerian music business.
Recently, Davido claimed that he and Wizkid were the first young Nigerian musicians to achieve popularity.
He said he was excited to see “new cats” (stars) such as Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy, Mayorkun and Asake now dominating the music industry.
Reacting via a video message shared on social media, Young6ix said he, Olamide and Wizkid achieved fame before Davido.
He said, “David, David. How many times I called your name?
“You know I got nothing but love for you, my boy. But let’s get it straight. It was Wizkid, Olamide and Young6ix before it was you. We were the youngins of that time.
“You want to skip me from the legacy?”
