I’m sorry for everything; Olamide apologizes to Headies

Olamide has finally accepted the humble pie and come out to apologize to the Headies crew, Hip TV crew and Mr Ayo Animashaun himself; albeit through a Youtube video.

This comes after his outburst at the ceremony a few months ago where he got angry over the fact that the award for next rated artiste didn’t go to Lil Kesh who was still with YBNL at that time but went instead to Ayoleyi Hanniel Solomon better known by his stage name Reekado Banks of Mavin Records.

This obviously didn’t go down well with Olamide and he made his feelings known when he climbed the stage with his whole YBNL team, when his artist Adekunle Gold won the award for Best Alternative act for his song, Shade.

While expressing his appreciation, Lil Kesh prostrated before Olamide who then took the mic and said; “Lil Kesh is our own Next Rated artist. F**k that sh*t! The streets ti take over. Every f**king single was a hit back to back. From lyrically, to Shoki to Efejoku. Ko ni dafun Iya anybody. ”

After Olamide’s diatribe, Don Jazzy won The Special Recognition Award and in his vote of thanks after receiving the award from Tony Okoroji said: “I don’t like awards. I told Ayo Animashaun that I don’t want this award. I said the award should be given to D’banj but they found a way to get me here.”

Reacting to Olamide’s rant he said: “I came out here to support my children. As they were trying to present the award, Reekado Banks was performing at Ali Baba’s show. I have already told my children that I will buy cars for all of them. “Egbon Olamide, if you want the car, come and collect it”, Don Jazzy added. (The 2015 Headies Next Rated Artiste Award winner goes home with a Hyundai SUV car).

Olamide in the Youtube video said “On behalf of YBNL, I’m here to say a big sorry to the Headies crew, Hip TV crew and Mr Ayo Animashaun himself, if not for anything he has always been supportive, from 2010 when Kaffy brought me to the office, so he’s more like my dad in the industry, so I had to find a way to come down here and apologize for everything that has happened..”
He however, has not openly apologized to Don Jazzy who he abused continuously on tweeter; although many claim they have both put the rift behind them and moved on.
