Popular rapper, Olamide Adedeji also known as Olamide, has addressed controversies that have trailed ‘Logo Benz’, a new track by Lil Kesh. In the new song, Olamide raps about money rituals, diabolic practices and how he and Lil Kesh want to buy Benz.
The song comes against the backdrop of the curious cases of disappearing female pants in parts of Nigeria said to be the handiwork of Yahoo boys. The cover art for the audio is an altered version of the Mercedez Benz logo and a female pant.
Amidst growing calls for a boycott of his forthcoming concert in Lagos and censoring of his offensive lyrics, Olamide justified the lyrics of the song, saying that it is only raising awareness about societal ills.
This is not the first time Olamide will be accused of glorifying social vices with his music. In his 2014 hit ‘Story for the Gods’ he was accused of glorying rape, tobacco use with his video ‘Wo’, substance abuse with ‘Science Student’ and advance fee fraud with ‘Poverty Die’.
The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has reacted to the song by the artist. The Assistant Director of Public Affairs of the NBC, Ekanem Antia, today said the agency will ensure that the song does not get airplay.
