According to reports, the claims originated from a fake Twitter account purporting to belong to the rapper. The publicist of Shatta Wale, Flex Germain, called out Citi TV on Twitter, urging the media house to take down the video and apologize for their lack of research.

The unverified tweet in question claimed that Medikal had praised Shatta Wale for paving the way for Burna Boy’s success.
