– Nigerian music star, Olamide and Lil Kesh, recently trended for wrong reasons
– Their new release, Logo Benz, has earned a lot of criticism from fans for seemingly promoting ritual killings for blood money
– The YBNL boss has finally reacted to the backlash the track has faced
Music is no doubt a very powerful tool seeing as it has a great influence on an individual. Singers also hold a great deal of influence when it comes to controlling some actions of their fans.
It is common for most Nigerian songs to be about beautiful girls and making money among other things. However, when some lyrics seem insensitive or has the potential to cause harm, it usually faces criticism.
Nigerian singer, Olamide and his former label mate, Lil Kesh, recently offended a number of fans after their new track, Logo Benz, was released. It is widely believed that the song promotes blood money and several people took to social media to share their grievances.
The YBNL boss has finally taken to his Twitter page to react to the poor reviews. He reposted a tweet by one of his followers which claims that when he does a good song, it goes unnoticed but now that he has sang something controversial, people are complaining.
The tweet reads: “When @olamide_YBNL does amazing songs like “Shine” that talks about record label executives ripping artistes of it will not trend oo, when it is Logo Benz everybody turn werey for twitter.”
He further explained that the song creates awareness on the things that are prevalent in our society.
Artistes who feature on the album include Limerick, Lil Kesh, Davolee, Temmie Ovwasa, Lyta, Picazo, Yomi Blaze, Fireboy DML and DJ Enimoney.
Fans have already begun to express their excitement at hearing Olamide’s newly signed acts Picazo, Yomi Blaize and Fireboy on the album. Picazo and Yomi were signed by Olamide after videos of them rapping on the streets went viral. Visibly impressed with their skills, the YBNL boss rewarded them with recording contracts.
