“If Money No Enter, Na To Do Blood Money” – Nigerians Roast Olamide, Lil Kesh Over Contents Of New Track, Logo Benz
Nigerians on the micro-blogging site, Twitter have come for the duo of Olamide and Lil Kesh after their new track, Logo Bemz went viral.
Though the YBNL label owner, Olamide and his former signee and Lil Kesh are not new for controversial songs as their songs in the past have also received rejection from some section of the society, but their latest studio work is a little bit different as it is perceived to be promoting ‘money ritual’.
Recall that earlier in the year Olamide received knocks for his track Science Students as it was seen as a song promoting the use of drugs among the youth in the society just as his business partner and owner of Young And Gettin It, Lil Kesh have been bashed for promoting other immorality. Both are now been roasted for allegedly supporting ‘blood money’ in their new collaboration.
BlackBox Nigeria learnt that the problem started right in the intro in Logo Benz when in the plea to Jesus to bless them with money to buy Benz then said, “If money no enter i go do blood money.”
While none of the duo is yet to release official statements on intentions behind the track, reactions have started trail the track by Twitter users as they registered their displeasure at both artists. See below for some reactions…
Mazi Chima Amadi Ph.D @AMADICHIMA– If this was a country where “normal” people occupy, by now Olamide and Lil Kesh would have felt the brunt of antagonizing and attacking the fabrics of society through their songs. Within 24 hours of the release of the LEGO Benz song, virtually all the companies endorsing them.
👑 DaddyMO 👑 🚀 ♠ @officialdaddymo- Why is the new Lil Kesh and Olamide song promoting/glorifying ritual killings/blood money?? Why must you use terrible lyrics like this?? “If money no enter i go do blood money”
There needs to be a line that you can’t cross when it comes to lyrics in music. This is one of them.
FAVOUR ONYEOZIRI (GCFR) @Rouvafe– If you believe no one should criticize 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.
Isima Odeh @IsimaOdeh– This Olamide and Lil Kesh song is painful to listen to. A song that glorifies rituals, internet fraud and blood money. What does “If money no enter, I go do blood money” mean? That song will get across to millions of youth, that’s the worst part. There is no excuse for this.
Despite these reactions, some users are of the opinion that the track is just a reflection of what is presently going on in the society and hence, no need to blame Olamide and Lil Kesh for their lyrics in Logo Benz.
IG: Omope Abdul Azeez @Iam_Abdulaxis– Suddenly, Nigerians are woke. Falz spoke against Yahoo boys & praising illegal acts sometimes ago & majority came for him and labeled him a privileged child. Lil kesh & Olamide just remixed what 9ice said sometimes ago which was glorifying blood money. It’s now a norm.
@JajaPhD– Music is usually a reflection of the society from which it originates at the time it is produced.
So, Olamide and Lil Kesh are just producing music that reflect our society at this point in time just as Fela’s music in Fela’s time.
