YBNL star rapper, Olamide, has blasted celebrity blogger, Linda Ikeji, after the latter posted a ‘fake story’ on her blog concerning him.
Olamide launched a tirade at the blogger over her unsubstantiated story posted early this week claiming that the Bariga-raised rapper is expecting his second child with long-time girlfriend.
Linda wrote: “All you Naija celebrity men know you can have sex (plenty of it sef) without getting any woman pregnant, right? Olamide has reportedly joined the growing list of celebs having kids outside marriage as his long-time girlfriend, Adebukunmi Aisha Suleiman, is said to be expecting a baby.”
But in a series of furious tweets, Olamide took the blogger to the cleaners. Tweeting via his handle, @olamide_YBNL, the rapper wrote: “Lmfao Linda ikeji done fuck up. I’m sorry sweetie…Baby number 2 not number 10? Really? I’m a proud mofo. I hustled my way to d top if had i a baby y’all gon know . Balu !!!
“U don’t drag ppl’s name through d mud just like dat Dnt give me bullshit,I drop songs nd videos u don’t post u got a fake news piam! Oloshi…Haters of destiny!!! Ur papa no be president u de hate on another human from d buttom like u … Naah I won’t take ds shit Linda naaaah
“Fuck with others don’t fuck with me cos u never supported me .. I’m allowed to say shit to sis @lindaikeji or whatever … God punish u…God is the greatest ! U don write fake news insult me join.. I done talk my mind .. 50/50 .. Bless u Linda .. We go see 1 day.”
Olamide also got support from his colleagues in the industry. But the most vociferous of the responses came from Wizkid.
The StarBoi/EME act chipped in his comment via Twitterhandle @wizkidayo: “Awon Oloshi United!! Oma baje fun gbon gbon won!”
With the ranting taking the best of Tuesday, Linda waited till the following day to admit her error and did a follow-up.
“So I wrote a story today that Olamide is expecting a baby with his longtime girlfriend, Adebukunmi Aisha Suleiman. Someone in his camp put the story out because I am not the only news source to carry it, but anyway, Olamide has denied that this is true. He took to twitter about an hour ago to lash out at me.
“I feel like one he has been waiting for the moment to lash out at me..lol. Which is fine. And two, I also see he’s mad that I don’t post his songs and videos on my blog. If I’m not posting it, it’s because no one is sending to me…I’m a huge fan so…. Oh and love you too, boo!” Linda posted on her blog.
Last week, Olamide, in a yet-to-be-published interview with P.M.NEWS Entertainment Cafe, also denied having any love child.
“At my age, I am not too young to have my own child but none yet. The baby will come when the time is ripe,” he told P.M.NEWS Entertainment Cafe.
