The memories from the 2015 Headies Awards will forever linger in the hearts of everybody as music industry heavyweights Olamide and Don Jazzy started the New Year by switching on each other, leaving many in the Nigerian music industry shocked.
It would never have actually occurred to anybody that these 2 had it in them to brawl in the open space, having actually worked together on the song Skelemba, which is consisted of in Olamide’s November 2014 album.
The program of shame by mavin records boss and YBNL’s street champion started following a series of occasions at the awards in Lagos after Marvin Record starlet, Reekado Banks, beat Olamide’s protégé, Lil Kesh, to the coveted Next Rated Artist award.
Olamide revealed his disappointment at the decision when he accompanied Adekunle Gold, another YBNL act, who won the award for Best Alternative Artiste, to get the award.
“He (Lil Kesh) is our next rated artiste. He had back to back strikes throughout the year– Lyrically, Shoki, Gbese and Efejoku,” he said to name a few things prior to throwing the mic on the stage.
The circumstance took a turn when Don Jazzy, obviously feeling slighted, told Olamide to come and take the vehicle, which comes with the Next Rated award, if he wanted it while getting the unique acknowledgment award.
The remarks infuriated the YBNL employer who required to Twitter to blast Don Jazzy, alerting him to keep away from Lagos mainland.
In a series of tweets Olamide accused Mavin’s boss of messing up D Banj’s career and oppressing artistes signed to his record label.
