Abolore Akande, popularly known as 9ice has debunked rumours of him having any form of beef with former Coded Tunes label mates, Olamide and Reminisce.
Speaking in a recent interview with Punch Newspaper, the Gongo Aso crooner revealed that there is no beef between them and that he maintains a good relationship with both rappers.
He said “There is no issue between myself, Olamide and Reminisce. The reason I was not at one of Olamide’s concerts was because I was not in the country and that was the same reason I missed Reminisce album listening party. During the last Sallah, I was at Reminisce’ house and that was where I ate Sallah meat. It is just that our schedules are tighter now”.
He further revealed that he has so many unreleased songs with Olamide “I was on Olamide’s first album and he was on my last album. I have so many songs with Olamide that are yet to be released. I also feature in about four songs with Reminisce that have not yet been released. I am on his recent album”. He stated.
Stating further, the MOBO Award winner reiterated on their tight schedules “It is just that I have a busy schedule now. Imagine if we want to have a Code Tunes concert as big as all its artistes are now; don’t you think it will be a big budget that would require lots of time to take Olamide out of his terrain, it has to be worth it for him to come and participate. Those are some of the factors. It is not as if someone is fighting or angry with anybody. There is nothing like that,” 9ice said.
The Temple Management Company artiste also hinted that he has not given up on his promise to bring home the Grammy.
He said: “I am still working on bringing the Grammy to Nigeria. Abraham Lincoln tried several times before he became the president of the US while Buhari tried about four times before he became president. As long as I am still doing music, I can still get the Grammy,” 9ice said.
With his new management – Temple Management Company, – do you think there is going to be a new direction in his career, which will make him bring home the Grammy?
