Wizkid’s global phenomenon, ‘Essence’ featuring US-based Canadian superstar Justin Bieber and songstress, Tems has hit another milestone after emerging number one on Billboard’s R&B/Hip Hop Airplay chart this week.
This information was shared on the official Twitter page of Billboard. The tweet read; ”@wizkidayo’s “Essence,” featuring @justinbieber & @temsbaby, hits No. 1 on this week’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart.”
This comes just days after the original featuring Tems emerged as the most Shazamed song in the United States. Additionally, Essence recently made history as the first song to make Billboard Hot 100 as it debuted at Number 82.
Starboy’s name popped in the news recently when Nigerian Twitter influencer, Tife Fabunmi has slammed over his recent tweet where he was spotted saying he knows he’s not the best in the game.
His comment which has been interpreted as a litotes (an ironic understatement in which an affirmative is expressed by the negative of its contrary), has obviously not gone done well with Tife who came for him on behalf of OBO.
According to Starboy, while people believe he is the best, to him, he only makes good music.
”I’m not even really the best in this shit.I just make some good sh*t!” Wiz tweeted.
Taking to Twitter, Tife said that the Fever crooner’s statement is him acknowledging that Davido is the best singer.
He wrote; ”Even Wizkid knows Davido is the best, debate settled”
The comment sparked and intensified the age-long debate between the two opposing factions from Starboy FC and 30 Billion Gang.
See some of the reactions the post generated;
