A tweet by Nigerian singer, Wizkid, to rapper MI Abaga when he was just an upcoming musician has suddenly resurfaced on social media.

The tweet, which was posted on November 1, 2010, at 8:14 pm, revealed the Afrobeat singer seeking the attention of the veteran rapper.

The tweet read: “@MI_Abaga hello sir…my name is Wizkid…nd am an upcoming artiste…I’ve met u b4 bt not sure u remb me…am a bigggg fan sir!..”

With the resurfacing of Wizkid’s tweet, social media users have reacted in a number of ways.

While some have hailed Starboy for his record-breaking growth, others have said he was kidding with his tweet.

Yet few have argued the tide eventually changed as the one who was being sought after has now become the upcoming artiste.
