Skales reacts to being mocked for not being as big as ex-label mate, Wizkid



Nigerian rapper, Skales has spoken on how much the comparison between him and colleague, Wizkid, used to affect him.

He went emotional in a series of posts on Twitter as he replied those who often mock him for not being as successful as Wiz, even as they started out together.

Skales and Wizkid were signed to Banky W’s Empire Mates Entertainment in 2010, and they released a good number of songs together before parting ways.

However, ever since then, Big Wiz has gone on to become a star where he has been getting trolled for his career not taking off as much as his colleague.

Skales said that despite the negative comments and comparisons, he is doing great career-wise. He stated that he loves those who hae been supporting him.

The Hip Hop artiste also noted that he used to avoid Twitter because of how toxic it is, but he is no longer allowing it get to him.

The Shake Body hit maker also said that his heart is filled with nothing but love for everyone including those mocking him.

He, however, added that if he were not making money from music, he would have been hurt by the comments.

Skales further said that all he is trying to do is to leave an impact in the world and inspire as many people as possible.

Taking to Twitter, he wrote;

”Over the years it’s “your career is dead” “no be you and Wizkid start” lol 🤦‍♂️ I see it !! It’s all love and I’m still doing great as far as careers go … and I love all those that support me !!
