Was speaking to a friend today and it reminded me of one story when was managing stopped speaking to comedian AY cos of this incident and honestly tin today, glad did COS don’t like people with that sort of character.
So me and A Y used to be cool. I’d done favors for him in the past, no big deal. When Olamide was coming up, decided to ask cash in a favor and ask if Olamide could perform at his show even if it’s for a minute. Omo, refused to give the boy a chance. It pained me ehn. took the L and lamented for weeks. Lmao!
No wahala, we sha kept it pushing. Anyways fast forward to the next year, Olamide had started doing well and guess who conveniently needed a favor, and wanted Olamide to perform? Oga comedian. This is the same guy that turned Ola down cos he wasn’t big now looking for “friend of the house” performance. See it’S 0k to turn him down, nothing is by force but don’t come back later looking for a favor from that same person you underrated. It makes you look like a user. IMO! told Cabasa he must pay but Cabasa, as per man of God, said to just free him and had to respect that. Left to me, would have charged him that day and at double our rate.
Glory be to GOd Sha COS if God.
See ehn, no one born of man can stop anything God has planned for you. I’m Very proud when see Olamide thriving cos the road was fucking hard. knew his talent couldn’t be hidden for long sha so all na time.
