Later that day, he posted another tweet, where he noted that “the game is only for the real”, and made a subtle reference to Davido with the phrase “catch up or stay local”. Then he shared another piece of advice for his followers telling them not to blame anybody for their failures and work hard. Later on, he told his followers to “drink more water”. Lots of people interpreted this tweet as shade towards Davido, which it most definitely was. During the time when the two were taking a short-lived break from the feud, Wizkid won the Best International Act Africa Award at the BET awards. Davido was nominated in this category as well.

Fans quickly picked up on the line “With Yanky passport, them say we local oh / You better catch up, I go see you later”.
