Despite the massive rave and praise the song has been receiving, Wizkid has yet to respond officially to his tribute song, “Machala”.

Godson, an aid to Wizkid, however guaranteed Carter that he would perform Machala, with the starboy. He made the pledge to Carter during an Instagram livestream, weeks after lambasting Carter for recording and dedicating one song to Wizkid.

Godson has said he will ensure the skits maker performs the song alongside Big Wiz on an international stage.
