“Na why Man no dey Speak out. Shey you all were saying he was clout-chasing not up to 24 hours ago. RIP OLADIPS.”

“RIP Oladips. This one pained me way too much, way way too much. Someone that was supposed to drop an album tomorrow, now it’d go number 1 and once again the artist won’t get to see it, stupid life.”
