Reekado Banks’ manager and brother, Temi Solomon, says his singer wasn’t misinterpreted or under any influence when he said he was a better artiste than Lil Kesh.
Recall that when Reekado was awarded the Next Rated Artiste at the 2015 Headies Awards, Olamide, who was Lil Kesh’s boss then, wasn’t happy about it.
Two years later, during his recent Thank You concert in Ibadan, Reekado declared in pidgin English that he is better than Lil Kesh and his father.
When Punch called Reekado’s manager and brother over the statement, he said, “It is not something I want to talk about. If certain people were annoyed because he spoke his mind, I think those people are not his fans. Our fans would not complain about what he said in that manner. He didn’t mean to hurt or harm anyone and we don’t have something against the artiste (Lil Kesh).
“If he said he is better than someone, he probably meant it. I really want to know the fans who were angry about it. Was it Reekado’s fans or the person’s fans? He said what was on his mind and it is not compulsory for everyone to agree with him.
“People who feel that he is arrogant because he said what he wanted to say have their reasons to think so. If I say that one newspaper is better than another, it is my opinion. That he didn’t say a word since the 2015 Headies Awards’ fallout doesn’t mean he has not felt like talking. So, if he said he was better than Lil Kesh, it was just an expression.”
