Nigerian celebrity blogger Linda Ikeji and Afrobeats artist Wizkid have finally smoked the peace pipe after weeks of social media banter that led to a threat by the latter.
The two on Monday April 18 2016 met at the office of the Lagos Commissioner of Police after to settle their impasse after Linda Ikeji had reported the threat issued by Wizkid on social media to have his 16 year old brother beat up the blogger for publishing news on his quit notice.
According to Linda Ikeji, she chose to have the case settled out of court and not to prolong it because Wizkid and his lawyers had apologized to her on phone prior to meeting the commissioner of police.
“He tendered an apology to me and said he wasn’t a violent person, that he didn’t mean what he said, that it was just an emotional outburst. And then he asked for forgiveness.”
This could have the case settled right? However, an image Wizkid shared on Instagram seems to throw jabs at the blogger.
Wizkid in the said picture is seen with the Lagos commissioner of police with a caption, “With the Hon Commissioner of Lagos Police!!! Police is ur friend! ???????? #youngPablo!!”
Linda Ikeji later commented on the shared picture and explained why she decided not be part of the photograph.
In a post on her website, she said:
” I turned down taking a photo with him and the police commissioner this afternoon. One of his people took a pic of him and the commissioner with me in it and my people insisted they delete it. Not because I haven’t forgiven him, I just don’t need the extra drama.”
