    As some one said… Olamide didn’t just stand up for one of them, he stood up for Dbanj, Wande Coal and the future SMD…. LOL
    Really, can this matter just die forever? and this Adekunle guy is a very clean dude.
    Boys of today… you can dress decent and still be loved. Ask Jidenna and Adekunle Gold.

    Umm, he said he stood *up* for one of them. Please quote correctly, BN. Even one word counts when you’re quoting someone else.

    Way to go. Is it me or something?… I think he is not like an act for YBNL. He is way too composed and mature for them. Great year I pray.

    What is Respect in the first place, HIPTV repeated #TheHeadies twice yesterday and believe me OLAMIDE was highly disrespectful. What do we even want his boy to say, tell us otherwise, he’ll have to protect his boss.
    Olamide allowed pride took over him at the awards, with millions watching, some of who are those that made you and gave your STREET BRAND the look it is today, whatever it cost you to maintain, he could have done it.
    He slammed the Mic on the floor, that’s absolute madness, no one should talk about Olamide been respectful, I love him but this is unacceptable

    You just gotta like this guy, I met him at a club in Ikoyi a few months ago and he was so respectful and level headed…… he was practically bending while he was greeting self.. at that point I thought it was all some kind of rehearsed behavior for show but….. looking at him even months after he just seems like a pretty nice guy. I really hope he does well with his music….. and when the album drops I’ll definitely be one of the first persons to buy it……..
