Nigerians were shocked 3 days ago when Olamide and Don Jazzy had a big fallout at the Headies 2015 while on Live International TV, and the fight spilled over to Twitter and made a bloody mess.
Fast forward to two days later, a huger, bigger surprise lay in wait. The two super icons at the same time on Instagram and Twitter, released a photo along with a statement that said they had reconciled.
Their fans and colleagues were excited but if you re among those who have been wondering how this reconciliation happened, I’ve got the gist for you. It’s EXCLUSIVE to Laila’s Blog and you can take it to the bank, thanks to a very credit worthy friend who witnessed it all.
I’m told that the picture we all saw of Olamide & Don Jazzy shaking hands was taken at Aliko’s place. Aliko Dangote stepped in for there to be peace. I’m also told that Olamide prostrated himself for Jazzy. Yes, my guy was shocked too when Olamide did that. All thanks to Dangote.
I’m told Jazzy has been angry since the incident happened, infact he wasn’t even talking to people.
He was angry especially because Olamide did something similar last year when Reekado Banks got the Headies 2014 Rookie award.
If you recall, the undisputed street King went on stage to receive his award at the 2014 Headies and while giving his speech for the “Best Rap Album of the year ”, he clearly stated his displeasure for the omission of his Label mate and protege “Lil Kesh” in the Rookie of the year Category, the category which was won by Mavin’s Reekado Banks.
Olamide took the mic said some stuff in Yoruba and then added “I dedicate this award to my nigga “Lil Kesh” for the Rookie of the year , Fuck that sh*t” and then returned the mic.
Fast forward to 2015, my source says everybody that was sitting next to Jazzy was sad Olamide did what he did. I hope you know Olamide and Tiwa did a song together on her recent album plus Teebillz, Tiwa’s husband, I’m told, really loves and respects Olamide. I’m told the video of the song has not been finished sef, Olamide’s part has not been done sef.
People were not just happy that Olamide conducted himself in such a manner. That was why Jazzy said all he said on the podium. He had been pushed to the wall.
Olamide, you all already know, destroyed things back in Headies’ green room. I’m now exclusively told he also punched someone.
Anyways… Dangote called Jazzy, got Olamide’s number from him and then he called both parties to his house for the settlement.
And, EVERYONE is cool now sha.
My source says Reekadobanks will release a new single this January. His label did not expect to win Headies’ Next Rated.
