Muyiwa Awoniyi, manager of Tems, a Nigerian singer, has responded to an argument made by him that Wizkid, the superstar artiste, refused to pay the female singer for her contribution to Essence.


Tems is featured on Wizkid’s “Made In Lagos” album track “Essence.” She also wrote the album, according to sources.

However, a social media user took to Twitter to share a screenshot which he claimed was from Muyiwa’s Instagram page.

In the screenshot, Tems manager had alleged that Wizkid failed to pay the female singer royalties for Essence which turned out hugely successful.

The Twitter user who shared the post wrote; ”Tems Management just confirmed

Tems didn’t received any Royalties for writing / recording Essence.

Omo wizkid no try at all oooo”

However, in a swift reaction, Muyiwa debunked the post as falsified, saying the screenshot was photoshopped.

This is photoshop. You are so weird.”
