Why Nigerians Blasted Olamide Over #OLIC4



The 2017 edition of the popular Olamide Live In Concert (OLIC) took a new twist on Sunday when fans already planning to be at the event discovered an operative of the Special Anti RObbery Squad (SARS) will also be performing at the event.

Findings by BlackBox Nigeria revealed that OLIC4 which was in conjuction with Lagos State Government and which held at the State-owned Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere received backlash on Sunday after it dawned on the music lovers that YomiSARS will be performing at the event. His inclusion was not welcomed particularly because of the still trending #EndSARS campaign which has remained dominant on social media for several days.

Reacting to the backlash, OLIC organisers however tried saving their face following the outcry as they claimed the controversial Police Officer, YomiSars wasn’t billed to perform but Yomi Sax.
