Fans accuse Wizkid of sexual harassment.
Afrobeats superstar Wizkid has been accused by Nigerians of making unwelcome and inappropriate sexual advances towards Tems. Nigerians made the remarks while reacting to a video of Wizkid and Tems performing their song titled Essence at the O2 Arena, London.
In the video, Wizkid moved closer to Tems and attempted to carry her by putting his hands beneath her buttocks.
However, Tems quickly removed his hands, pulled back and she also appeared uncomfortable afterward.
