The recent controversy surrounding Oladips’ exit from Reminisce’s Les Rogues Roses (LLR) has begun to set tongues wagging and many people are beginning to find the issue as a thing of huge concern.
Different opinions have been aired by different music fans, but the one that has caught the eye is a comment by an anonymous music fan under a post of Oladips’ recently released single; “Maybe” published by Tooxclusive. He weighs in on the matter and advises Oladips on what to do in an open letter to the artiste.
This post was made on the first of July, 2019 at about 4;26pm and was directed strictly to Oladips.
“I will be sincere with Ola dips, Reminisce is just like every other human being. He wanted the best not just for you but for himself as well. He felt if you went commercial you might blow which would automatically make you a star and make him some money. “Idi rabata” (you know the song is the only song that can be played in a club or a party, rappers don’t blow no mo. My friend Jaido P (one of the illest Yoruba rappers around, almost committed suicide recently and also, don’t regret being signed because admit it or not it has upped your social status, compared to when we used to chill in Egba.
“You feel you were better off, na lie, but let me tell you the truth today bro, there is a price and that’s the price you pay for stardom bro! I’m very close to Damola popularly known as Fireboy and baba for still dey do freestyle with dem Okgegs and nobody fit done sabi him papa or say him mad musically. He got signed and he’s a star now. But you cannot compare yourself to him. You know why? Coz “Jealous” is highly commercial and his music is marketable as well. Same for Rema…! If rema had dropped “Boulevard,” “Spiderman,” as initial singles, take it from me e for no blow
“Baba first do dem “Iron man” and “Dumebi”, do videos, blow small den con start him rap tins. Understand your market bro, observe. Everyone knows Oladips can rap but make i no lie u bro, naija too get problems. We need gbedu weh go carry our sorrows away. Dremo and Mayorkun got signed same day whose making more money now? Don’t get me wrong o, Dremo is doing very well for himself and he’s quite talented but if i wan do show i go reason Mayorkun before i reason Dremo#fact. Biggest mistake you can make now is fight Reminisce…alaye mi artiste pon nta!
“last last he go sign better singer and all dis wan weh pple still dey do, dem go forget am…my advise to you bro is – develop a unique style like zlatan, once u hear repetition of lyrics, you know it’s him. Una gada start, pple even sabi u for Egba pass am that time. So here are my opinions:
- Develop a style
- Become a little bit more controversial
- Keep mute on the Reminisce matter and move on. He tried his best, leave the rest to God
- Make use of the buzz you’re having now
- Build a team which must include me (one love bro)
I told Skibii then but i’m sure he can remember me, i told him that he will still blow, no be him be that???
