Nigerian superstar rapper and YAGI label boss, Lil Kesh has reacted to the ongoing outrageous debate on social media with respect to his latest single ‘Logo Benz’ with former record label CEO, Olamide, where the glorification of money rituals was the subject of the lyrics.
The singer (real name: Keshinro Ololade) and Olamide have come under fire for releasing the new song with provocative lyrics that promote money rituals.
“If money no enter I go do blood money”, a line which means ‘I’ll do blood money if I’m broke’, has drawn the ire of many who have called for the boycott of the duo’s songs and concerts.
However, social media users slammed the rappers for what they call mockery of alleged victims of money rituals and glorifying the act.

“If money no enter I go do blood money”
LOL I have been shouting for years but people seem unbothered. Can we all come together and tell Olamide and Lil Kesh that “enough is enough”???
If they want to perish, they should perish alone and not drag other youths along.

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.

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.
