DJ Magic Jay, a Jamaican poker player living in the United Kingdom, claims Grammy Award-winning Nigerian singer Wizkid slapped him at an event in London in 2018.

The Jamaican claimed he went to greet the singer at Ycee’s performance at 02 Academy in Islington, London, but Starboy slapped him on the arm.

This was revealed by the DJ in a recent interview with Ruggedman TV, hosted by legendary Nigerian rapper Ruggedy Baba.


The Jamaican, who describes himself as a fan of Nigerian Afrobeat music, explained that after introducing himself, he only offered to shake hands with Wizkid, but the singer seemed offended.

DJ Magic Jay said;

Ycee’s concert, I was in Islington at the 02, I walked in, I went to greet him [Wizkid], I said, ‘Hi, how are you doing, Wizkid? My name is Cool Magic Jay; a Jamaican guy who loves afrobeats’. I went to shake his hand and he slapped my hand away.

He said he would love to interview Wizkid to unravel why he acted the way he did.
