Olamide Says ''Logo Benz'' Lyrics Is To Condemn Ritual Killing
YBNL boss, Olamide has reacted to the opinions swirling around about the new song ''Logo Benz'' which has him and Lil Kesh reuniting.
Social media received the song with heavy criticism on Thursday, due to its lyrics which seemed to promote internet fraud and ritual killing.
Olamide claims that the song was intended to draw attention to the ritual killings and internet fraud.
Tweeting on Friday @Olamide_YBNL, he said, “Logo Benz is for the 3rd party to have a glimpse into the current state of youths in our society. (Runs girls x runs boys)
“I’m not sure if there’s anything like too much awareness but pardon me if there is. It’s all over the news, it’s always been in movies, don’t box musicians,” he said.
Fans are, however, not pleased as they feel it is the same ‘weak’ defence he gave when ''Science Student'' received similar backlash and was subsequently banned.
Meanwhile some have called for the boycott of his upcoming concert tagged ‘Olamide Live In Concert’ (OLIC) billed to hold later in December.
@MrLewinOkotie tweeted, “Condemning Olamide shouldn’t just end on social media cos I know the same people bashing him already probably have bought tickets for Olic.
“Boycott his shows and petition brands that endorsed him. When he loses a couple endorsements his head would be correct.”
@Voiceofinsanity said, “This Logo Benz song is enough a reason for Nigerians not to grace his OLIC this weekend!”
@Xotie tweeted, “You guys should boycott OLIC. We need to send a message to Olamide. This new song is so sad. There re families that have lost loved ones to rituals.”VIDEO: Nigerian Men Share Their Opinion On Oral Sex
