Nigerian music superstars, Davido and Wizkid, have revived their rivalry after Star Boy's recent reference to the 2019 elections.

Davido has been a public supporter of Atiku and PDP, but Wizkid has decided not to divulge who he would vote for at the election polls on Saturday.

Wizkid has also declined numerous offers to perform at political rallies so as to avoid misleading his fans.

He even advised Nigerians not to vote for any candidate based on the influence of their favourite celebrity.

“Politicians, stop joking with people’s lives. You are responsible for the lives of millions of people and your decision affects all. Help make Nigeria a better place,” the star wrote on his Snapchat.

“Don’t let anybody wen don collect money influence your vote to tell u who’s right or not! Use your head! Vote wisely! I’m for whoever the people vote.

“Vote who you like … vote wisely. If you are old enough to get a PVC, you are old enough to think! Don’t sell your vote … your vote can make a difference! Go out and vote,” he concluded.

Davido, on the other hand, has made numerous videos and posts on social media demonstrating his political preferences while also performing at some PDP campaigns.

There has been criticism by fans of both men against Davido but none of it escalated until Wizkid shared a post by an online channel on his Instagram story yesterday.

The post read: "@wizkidayo rejected millions of naira politicians offered him to perform at their campaigns. He said he doesn’t want to influence the people of Nigeria for his own selfish interest."

Davido, who is known for his outspoken nature, could not resist the temptation to clap back. See his response in the screenshots below:
