"Great Ife Is Every Music Artiste’s Nightmare"

The Social image of the Obafemi Awolowo University has probably lost some points in the Nigerian music industry following the latest performance of the YBNL 'Sade' Crooner, Adekunle Gold, at the OAU Invasion which was held on Friday, 12th June 2015.

Adekunle Gold was the most anticipated performer of the night and some of the students were disappointed following his very brief performance. The disappointed students claimed that they did not enjoy the value of the money paid for tickets as his performance was too brief and some even related the incident to Kim Kardashian and the Darey's Love like a movie show in 2013.

 However, Event Promoter; Wale Applause, took to his twitter account to further claim that the DOS of the Students Union and some "Awo boys" went back to collect part of the money already paid to Adekunle Gold and blogs like and have already started drawing inferences from this twitter release.

 The Leadership of the Union have not released any  official statement concerning the incident but a relieving fact is that Adekunle is not the first musical artiste to perform in OAU. In fact over the last two years artistes like Wizkid Oritshe Femi, Wande Coal, Burna Boy, Harrysong, Reminisce, Sean tizzle and even the indigenous Chinko Ekun  to mention a few have performed in OAU without making negative headlines and so it is perhaps a misunderstanding of some sort.
 We however hope that the parties involved (Office of the DOS and Adekunle) can come out to clear the air, sort their differences and move forward and the music industry does not get the wrong impression of OAU. It would also be imperative at this  juncture to admonish the Great Ife Students not to be so alutaristic especially when they are supposed to be having fun. 
P.S- Falz the BAHD guy was also in Ife yesterday at a different show.
