The comparison fuelled by a twitter debate after Wizkid performed at The Royal Albert Hall in London in 2017.
Reacting during an interview with HipTV, the pop superstar stated that it was disrespectful to compare him with Fela.
According to him, Fela is an inspiration to him.
"You cannot compare me with Fela, let us not use that word that is disrespectful.
"You cannot mention I and Fela in the same sentence.
"Fela is an inspiration, my performance at Royal Albert hall was inspired by him," Wizkid said.
