Former artiste manager and ex-wife of singer, 9ice, Toni Payne,has recounted how AY Comedian begged Olamide to perform at his show a year after he rejected a request to allow the rapper perform at one of his shows.
She made this known on her Instagram stories moments back, as she went down the memory lane when she was managing Olamide.
“I was speaking to a friend today and it reminded me of the story when I was managing Olamide. I stopped speaking to comedian AY because of this incident and honestly till today, I’m glad I did cos I don’t like people with that kind of character. So me and AY use to be cool. I’ve done favours for him in the past, no big deal.
“When Olamide was coming up, I decided to ask cash in favour and asked if Olamide could perform at his show even if it’s for a minute. Omo see ela.
The man refused to give the boy a chance. It pained me ehn, I took the L and lamented for weeks. Lmas. No wahala, we sha kept on pushing. Anyway, fast forward to the next year, Olamide had started doing well, and guess who conveniently needed a favour 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 ehn, it’s ok 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!
I told Cabasa he must pay but Cabasa, as per man of God, said to just free him and I had to respect that. Left to me, lol…I would have charged him that day and at double our rate. Glory be to God sha cos if man na God ……See ehn, no one born of man can stop anything God has planned for you.
I’m always very proud when I see Olamide thriving cos the road was fucking hard. I knew his talent couldn’t be hidden for long sha so all na time. Lemme not talk of the day one boy carried him and Gabriel Afoloyan to I think Ogun state and I showed that one that, emi Osha, on my watch, no one I’m managing is to be messed with.”
