YBNL boss, Olamide, has reacted to the criticisms that trailed his latest song titled “Logo Benz” with Lil Kesh.

The award-winning music star defended the music on his Twitter handle stating that “Logo Benz” is for the third party to have a glimpse into the current state of youths in our society.

The controversial track from the former labelmates was produced by Rexxie and dropped on Thursday.

He further stated that the song is too bring awareness to runs boys and girls adding that It’s all over the news and has always been in movies.

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 2 much awareness, but pardon me if there is.

“It’s all over the news, it’s always been in movies, don’t box musicians,” Olamide wrote.

This is coming after Nigerians took to their social media handles to express their displeasure over the morale behind the song.

The song has vulgar lyrics like “If money no enter I go do blood money” which many perceived is glorifying and promoting “Yahoo Yahoo”, ritual killings, and other illegal ways of making money.

In the song, Olamide said: “I dey pray to Jesu, k’owo wọ lé o, if money no enter I go do blood money o.” Which means “I am praying to Jesus that money should enter if money doesn’t enter I will do blood money.

Lil Kesh came on next to sing, “pata ni logo Benz, a fẹ́ wa Benz,” meaning a pair of panties is the logo of Benz, we want to buy Benz. He went on singing about how he will enjoy the money of the panties in different ways.

Apparently, most Nigerians think the new song is promoting “Yahoo Yahoo”, and ritual killings and other illegal means to make money.

Recall that that Olamide’s hit single, “Science Student” was also banned by National Broadcasting Corporation because of its unhealthy lyrics.

Many stated that Olmide and Lil Kesh song has no depth and passes no credible message.

One @Ayò Bánkólé @AyoBankole, empathetically stated that the song, “Logo Benz” is “just a shameless promotion of ritual killings and desperation for money at all costs, including human blood.”

 

Hip-hop artiste, Olamide, has come under fire for featuring on a new song by his former protégé, Keshinro Ololade, popularly known as Lil Kesh, with provocative lyrics about money rituals.

The song, titled ‘Logo Benz’, which was released on Wednesday, has been criticised for promoting criminal, immoral and diabolical practices, and bringing the nation into disrepute.

One of the opening lines to the three-minute 52-second-long song says, “I dey pray to Jesu, ‘K’owo wo le o! If money no enter, I go do blood money o!’ I dey pray to Allah, ‘K’owo wo le o! If money no enter, I go do blood money o!’”

However, the lyrics have stirred strong criticism from Nigerians online. Reacting on Twitter, many derided the artiste for the perceived promotion of a rampant social vice.

A user, @youngichu, citing other controversial tracks by Olamide, said, “’Story for the Gods’ – Rap . Science student – drug abuse. Poverty die – yahoo (Internet fraud). Logo Benz – Ritual. Olamide really is not only trash but a liability to Nigeria’s journey.”

Omope AbdulAzeez said, “Suddenly, Nigerians are woke. Falz spoke against yahoo boys and praising illegal acts some time ago and majority came for him and labelled him a privileged child. Lil Kesh and Olamide just remixed what 9ice said some time ago, which was glorifying blood money. It’s now a norm.”

Similarly, @ani_nomso said, “We have praised fraudsters in so many ways, especially in the music industry (such) that Olamide has the guts to publicly say he’ll do ritual. No fear whatsoever, (he) talked about killing someone to make money so casually like it’s nothing. Pathetic!”

Daniel Iyam said, “I like Olamide but I think he needs to put a stop to his trashy lyrics. It’s okay to be creative and relatable but never make it look like fraud and other vices are normal. Kids listen to his music a lot and these influences make them see yahoo as a career path. Not cool.”

In the same vein, @royzkingin said, “At this moment, Olamide and Lil Kesh are toxic to the music industry.”

@OlaTheOG said, “This ‘pata ni logo Benz’ song is a totally insensitive song. In fact, if you find it funny, you’re stupid. Olamide and Lil Kesh should be banned. Their desperation to stay relevant has got out of hand.’

Favour Onyeoziri said, “If you believe no one should criticise Olamide and Lil Kesh because some other artistes glorified internet fraud and got away with it in the past, then you need your brain examined by a qualified psychiatrist.”

Lil Kesh, responding to the backlash, posted, “If money no enter, I go do blood money o. Talk your own. We are not promoting what already exists. We are bringing awareness to it, so spread your panties at owner’s risk because people are targeting panties.”
