Nigerian gospel singer Lanre Teriba may have just started an online debate following a recent interview he granted.
According to Teriba, multi-award winning singer Wizkid is seen more like an upcoming singer by Americas.
Speaking during an interview on EsplashonTVC, Teriba noted that Nigerian acts are not regarded abroad. He said;
I travel a lot and I can tell you that Nigerian artistes are still seen as local musicians in the lens of foreigners. Even Wizkid is seen as an upcoming artiste. ~ Lanre Teriba (Atorise)
His statement has since caused a stir online as many have shared their thoughts on it.

@sleemjim_ – Big fat lie, Lanre Teriba does not know what he’s saying.
Wizkid,Davido,Burna boy, Mr Eazie, etc are very huge outside Africa,NIGERIA artist are well honoured and respected across the globe, Lanre Teriba should not come and give us false info.
