'Olamide destroyed my music dreams’

09 June 2016, 13:03

Lagos - Former YBNL artiste Xino slammedhis ex-label boss and mentor, rapper, Olamide.

The rapper was signed by Olamide in 2015, adding him to a growing list of YBNL members which included Chinko Ekun, Lil Kesh, Adekunle Gold, and Viktoh. 

Over 1 year later, Lil Kesh has transitioned into a star with his personal record label, Adekunle Gold is gearing for an LP release, and Temi Ovwasa, a new female act has been added to the fold.

Xino's music was never released, and according to the rapper, the fault lay with Olamide, who 'made him feel impatient and destroyed his dreams.

The rapper made these accusations on Instagram, where he wrote a passionate and personal piece to explain his situation.

Under YBNL, Xino dropped two singles ‘Nakam’ and ‘TTYBL’ produced by Pheelz and recently a single titled ‘Ojumeta’ to re-launch his career. 

Okay! This post dey uncalled for totally, but bread wey dem leave for air gaz dry. I used to be under YBNL Nation till my Boss, Mentor and Big bro left me out on the streets with no form of support but these undoubtedly wise words "Only the grind connects hustlers" Real talk. But real talk no dey put records on countdown. I worked my ass off recording over 12 songs within a month and just to be recognised by the fam, but it's like I was just shadow punching. I won't curse or slander coz we all love him. This is a pussy move prally, but e no nice to have ur hopes of making waves dashed (which they aren't) by someone u look up to and believe in. I didn't mind waiting for even a year to have my records out, but bros made it seem like I was the most impatient fool. The aim of this post sha na to encourage my people dem to believe yourself, I tot we was all from the street tho, but turns out... any how help me tag someone that'll take this to heart. I am Xino and blood runs in my veins what don't kill me make me stronger. I'm a better afro artiste, growing producer and the total package. I might not fly round the world yet for shutting down London and malay and eko hotel, but ehnn... I'll be damned if I die with less than 10MILLION DOLLARS in my second account. Now pls no more questions. SHEY MAN GO LOYAL TILL HIM GET HUNCHBACK #TagAnybody #IMUSTBEHEARD #ThisPostIsCoveredByTheBlood lol..
