Drama Unfolds As Olamide Answers Motherland's Beckon
The Afrika Amphitheatre was definitely the place to be on Monday, the 30th 2016, as popular indigenous musician; Adedeji Olamide, popularly known as Olamide Badoo visited the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-ife.
The show which hosted Olamide was organised by Motherland Beckons, an organisation which is said to reach out to Africans in Diaspora. However, the show had quite the dramatic touch as just before it began, a faction of Students caused a scene claiming that the ticket fees of the show was too expensive for a University community. It took the intervention of the security Unit of the University to salvage the situation even though the popular "Awo Boys" eventually had their way.
The show featured performances from a number of acts; Anu, the Lady Ekwe and Olo Omidan Bata who both thrilled the audience with their percussion skills and a number of other indigenous acts. Some upcoming OAU acts also graced the stage of the event.
However, when it was time for the star of the night to perform, the audience as expected went into an uncontrollable frenzy. Despite the efforts of the security officials on stage with the act, some persons were still untameable which eventually led to fights breaking out around the stage where the Abule Sowo crooner was performing. The fights left Olamide upset which led to his unexpected exit from the stage but this was not before he treated the audience to several of his hit songs. It is also worthy to note that this would not be the first time the YBNL Boss is visiting Obafemi Awolowo University and he made this clear when he obeyed popular"Dobale" tradition of the Institution.
We would hope following the turn out of events, this would not be his last visit to the Institution.
