The tracklist of the replica album dubbed “Lasgidi Made”.

What appears surprising is most streamers either didn’t notice the difference or clicked on his album in error.

It was revealed the dubbed album had amassed over 9 million streams translating to a profit of about 30 million naira monthly in streams and sales revenue being shared with him.

According to African Facts, Wisekid has been raking in N30million monthly from Digital stores since he uploaded the replicated album in October 2020.

Reacting to allegations of fraud levelled against him, Wisekid said he did not stream Wizkid’s music and that Freeme Digital has been distributing his own songs

Freeme Digital, in a statement denied, distributing his music.

It said: “It has come to our notice that an artiste by the name of “Wisekid” claims to distribute an album titled ‘Lasgidi Made’ with our organization.

“While it is true that he distributes some of his contents through our organisation, we will like to make it categorically clear that the said, ‘Lasgidi Made’ album was not distributed via our platform.

“We will be deleting the rest of Wisekid’s content on our platform and we have informed our legal team to immediately commence investigation on the issue and prosecute the matter to the full extent of the law.”
