Rising star, Wani, has ruffled some feathers on music twitter following his comparison to Iyanya. Wani replied ‘God forbid’ to being called the new school Iyanya and a lot of people thought he was being disrespectful.
God forbid 🙏🏾 https://t.co/R0QuaGaB5Y

Iyanya has however replied with nothing but positivity while promoting his new EP.
Pikin wey no learn from home, na from outside he go receive training. Maybe then, he go learn. Great feeling to know that my core fans don’t joke with my work. It’s largely all love always from my end. #FYL

Iyanya fans and music lovers still haven’t let go and are still coming for Wani, peep some reactions below:
Wani’s biggest song, ‘China Designer,’ was a refurbished beat from one of Tekno’s weakest releases, ‘Be’. https://t.co/WokKFC0zb2

Wani's comment about Iyanya was unnecessary and rude.
But that's life.

it’s okay for wani to feel like he’s not the new school iyanya. it’s ok for him to want his path to be diff. they don’t sound / write alike..
but pls never disrespect that man. those hits, those moves & his humility @ his height can’t be taken from him
have a good day

As Nigerian music fans, we must not normalize newbies disrespecting those who came before them. We cannot let this become a trend.
