The two artistes have been going against each other – especially in the past couple of years over who is better, has a bigger following and international acclaim.

The rivalry between the two artistes has extended to their fan base.

In early 2018, when Wale joined Stonebwoy as a label mate on  Zylofon Music, fans wondered what would happen to the rivalry.

“Right now, you hear say people dey think; ‘so what you go do Stonebwoy?’. You see Stonebwoy, for here [Zylofon] he be my brother but for town he be my enemy.” stated Wale to his cheering fans when he was officially unveiled.
