Afrobeat superstar, Wizkid, has sparked a flurry of reactions and speculations with his recent decision to respect personal boundaries during a performance with colleague, Tems.
The dynamic duo took to the stage together at the highly-anticipated ‘Essence Fest’ on Sunday night, marking their first joint performance in two years.
After captivating the audience with their rendition of the hit song “Essence”, Wizkid took a moment to express his gratitude.
However, amidst his speech, an unexpected and passionate hug from Tems caught him off guard.
Displaying a slight hesitation, Wizkid refrained from reciprocating the embrace fully, causing a stir on social media.
This cautious response from Wizkid may be attributed to a controversial incident that took place during the “Made In Lagos” concert at London’s O2 Arena in 2021.
Wizkid had attempted to lift Tems during the performance, which garnered a range of reactions on social media.
Some users accused Wizkid of assault, while others dismissed it as mere incident.
In a recent video clip, the tables were turned as it was Tems who initiated the hug with Wizkid.
Fans were quick to draw comparison to the past incident, highlighting the noticeable change in the dynamics between the two artists.
