Most of us just know these artistes on the surface level oblivious to what goes on inside the inner caucus, well, here’s throwing some little light on Lil Kesh’s struggle in his present record label which we think have prompted him to abandon the YBNL crew and forge ahead on his own, read on:
Over the weekend, there were insinuations that Talented rapper, Lil Kesh will be leaving his label, YBNL, a home which houses Adekunle Gold, Chinko Ekun, Viktoh, Pheelz, Young John under the leadership of King Olamide Badoo.
This news is one that nobody envisaged, at first, everyone thought it was just a joke but since the news broke, there hasn’t been a statement from the label to debunk the rumours, hereby confirming it to be true.
However, as surprising as it is, there has to be reasons for this development and at Saharaweekly, these are what we tink the pains of Lil kesh are:
Cheating : No doubt, Lil kesh is one great artiste that has a lot to offer, he is also a street guy which makes him blend with the whole YBNL crew. He has made lot of hit song and he was part of the first set of artiste signed to the label. Before the arrival of other artistes, videos were shot for all of Lil kesh’s song but the situation has changed. He released his album some months ago and till now, no video has been shot whereas, Adekunle Gold released ‘Ready’ some weeks back and in a space of days, a nice video was shot.
Another issue is Olamide’s latest jam, ‘Who you epp’. Olamide knows the kind of person he is, whenever he releases anything, it’s surely going to be the new language in town. This track technically killed Lil Kesh’s Album ‘Y.A.G.I’ whereas; he didn’t do same in the matter of Viktoh, Adekunle Gold, and others.
Retrogression: Lil kesh has been with Olamide for two years, and he got no tangible endorsement. He started the career with Reekado banks, Korede Bello, and those guys are already smiling to the bank. They are making a living out of their music, without depending on their record label. This is really disheartening for the Youngster. He hasn’t really progressed.
Another one is that he hasn’t gotten any prime award ever since he joined YBNL.
Modesty: This is really a big issue. It has become a custom for Olamide to say unprintable words to organizers of awards if Lil kesh isn’t given any. He has done it twice at the Headies awards. This is affecting the young man’s career. Award organizers don’t want to nominate him again, no one wants Olamide’s trouble.
Lil kesh is a great artiste, but we hope if he eventually leaves, he becomes greater even though it will be difficult.
Furthermore, confirming his Exit story, Lil Kesh’s Manager, AB Fresh was called live on radio and was asked to confirm or debunk the rumour but he said ‘ When it’s time, you will know, there’s no fun telling you right now’
