Some social media users have accused Afrobeats superstar, Ayodeji Balogun popularly known as Wizkid of making unwelcome and inappropriate sexual advances towards his colleague, Temilade Openiyi (Tems).
The allegations trailed a clip shared online showing the duo 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 and appeared uncomfortable afterwards.
Meanwhile, some of their fans have taken to social media to knock the musician while demanding an apology.
Below are some of their reactions:
