The Next Rated category of Headies awards has sparked a row between ace producer Don Jazzy and super rapper Olamide. The category won by Rekado Bans also has a suv Hyundai i35 as a bonus.
Shortly after the presentation Olamide was on the stage with Adekunle Gold to receive an award on alternative category where Olamide declared that to them Lil Kesh is their Next Rated with back to back hit singles. With the shocking words Olamide and his crew walked away and angrily slammed the mic on the stage.
Don Jazzy soon came on stage to receive special recognition award presented by Tony Okoroji of COSON. On the stage the producer explained how he has always been very careful to receive awards saying he actually advised the organisers that it is logical that Dbanj receives the award he was being presented since TuFace, Psquare have all received in the sucessive years adding ‘I basically came here to support my ‘children”.
Lastly he said ‘egbon Olamide, if you want the car you can come and have it’ (obviously refering to the suv won by Rekado who’s on Marvins label ).
Not long after Olamide went on twitter to throw the first shot at Don Jazzy saying “f**k you don jazzy. F..k your whole generation, I’m not Dbanj God will punish you and yourfake ass…Bastard omo ale forming humble ”
He them followed up series of tweet that got retweeted at 2000 times every five minutes
One of the tweets that perhaps explain his anger reads ‘ God punish elder wey dey call me out when I no call him name. Bastard!’
The tweet war soon shot the awards and olamide to number one trending on twitter for the better part of early this morning.
Wande Coal on his part simply tweet ‘LOL..just passing through’
Another tweet of a fan says ‘Don jazzy was there to support his children and Olamide was there to defend bis children ‘
For now the battle continues while people await what comes next in few weeks time.
