Nigerian rap star, Emeka Akumefule aka Blaqbonez has tendered an apology to music star, Adekunle Gold on behalf of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun state.
Adekunle Gold ranted on Friday night over an incident which took place at the university in 2015 when he was humiliated in his hotel room after performing at a concert.
He had been reportedly paid N300k to perform at the school but only mounted the stage for about three minutes and sang only his debut single ‘Sade’ before leaving, an action which outraged students and the organisers.
They stormed his hotel and collected half of the N300,000 after allegedly man-handling him. The memory of his ordeal on that day still hunts Adekunle till date.
He wrote on Twitter: “I had Just one song out then (SADE), those fuckers knew it! they booked me! I prostrated for the students (No wham). I hyped the crowd up, performed Acapella, Sang the full song (SADE), Entered the crowd, Performed again. came back to the stage did the same thing again!
They were going to harm me! Do you know how insane that is? Your foolish Rep come dey lie for here? Ori yin ti Daru! They followed me to my hotel to get half of their 300k that they paid me back. I had one song! ONE! If you like go OAU go perform, anything wey your eyes see is on you.“
