Weeks after the release of Sebee remix, featuring two of Nigeria’s pop singers, there are indications that Olamide and Oritsefemi are currently engaged in silent feud following a collaboration with fast-rising Afro-pop singer, Sossi. Sossi who is signed to Bugatti records label featured Oritsefemi and Olamide in the remix of his popular single, “Sebee”, a track that has made him toast of many.
It was learnt during the week that problem started weeks after Sossi dropped the remix. Sossi and his management were said to have paid Olamide N1.5 million for him to feature in the remix while Oritsefemi was allegedly paid N500,000.
This disparity in the fee, according to our source, have angered Oritsefemi when he got to know about it. “He’s believed to be angry with Sossi and his management over their decision to pay him less fee as against Olamide, who he perceived to be his junior in the music industry,” said a source who is close to the record label.
Confirming the development, a source close to Oritsefemi said that the singer was not happy when he learnt that Olamide was paid more money than him, as he decided to express dissatisfaction over the matter.
We also gathered that there had been an unconfirmed animosity between Olamide and Oritsefemi over the latter’s decision not to feature the former in his yet-to-be released album.
Meanwhile, reacting to the development, a source reasoned that there was no need to create unnecessary feud between the two superstars, adding that “the artistes got what they asked for, and the label paid them what it felt they truly deserved.”
Efforts to contact Olamide on the phone proved abortive as his manager, Alex’s cell phone was switched off permanently.
Oritsefemi who was recently discharged from the hospital would not want to be dragged into the matter. But when contacted, Sossi Manager, Michael, said he was not aware of the development, promising, however, to look into the matter.
