What do you do?
My name is Jacobs May. I am a Germany-based Nigerian performer. I am an artist and I claim a moving school which centers around African contemporary move. As a Nigerian in the Diaspora, I attempt to utilize my move to advance the Nigerian legacy.
What prompted the battle in the video?
I truly did not have any desire to speak encourage about the Olamide issue, however I saw a video on YouTube and this influenced me to understand a few Nigerians still do not understand or a top to bottom comprehension of what precisely occurred in the video.
The coordinators moved toward me, a month and a half to the show, requesting that I put €6,000 in the show as Olamide will be in Germany to perform. I disclosed to them the warning was too short for me to contribute that sort of cash.
Three weeks to the show, they reached me again,begging me to utilize my photo to advance the show, which I acknowledged to do. I likewise posted the photograph on my Facebook and Instagram pages and even advised my adherents and other individuals to get their own tickets.
All in all, would you say you were at the occasion?
Indeed, I was at the occasion. I purchased a VIP ticket for €100, however I shouldn’t pay, considering the way that I was utilized to promote the show, yet I did it to help them.
What occurred amongst you and Olamide at the occasion?
Olamide and I didn’t have any encounter at the show, however his disposition was annoying to the point that I needed to go up against him after the show. It wasn’t an Olamide appear however he was the principle artiste. Some other Nigerian artistes likewise highlighted in the show.
What did he do at the show?
I was informed that Olamide touched base at the inn where I additionally held up on Saturday and he was planned to perform at 1:00am on Sunday. However, shockingly, Olamide came up at 3:30am, having kept individuals sitting tight for two hours.
When he went ahead stage, fans were furious.People were at that point alcoholic and they began throwing objects onto the stage. I was situated on the VIP segment, which was mounted on the stage. I was a piece of the general population who got hit by a container and I nearly crumbled in front of an audience. Individuals, including me, got so furious after Olamide performed for just 20 minutes. Individuals paid such a great amount to watch your execution and you set up a pitiful execution and for only 20 minutes.
All in all, what occurred after the show?
Like I specified before, I held up in an indistinguishable inn from Olamide. I became acquainted with when he landed on Saturday since I have been in the lodging since Friday.
Since we were in a similar inn, I strolled up to him in the anteroom at sunrise to disclose what had transpired because of him coming late in front of an audience. I moved toward him as a common individual and disclosed to him what had transpired. I likewise disclosed to him that it was out of line that he flew seven hours just for a 20-minute show. I defied him with the way that it was impolite of him to have come late and not to apologize to his fans and to likewise toss a 20-minute execution for fans that have sat tight more than two hours for him.
I was bewildered when he stood up and left me.
What happened from that point?
I was brimming with seethe when he demonstrated no concern,compassion or regret. That was the point at which I drew out my telephone to record the entire occurrence. Maybe on the off chance that he was considerate I would have acknowledged his conciliatory sentiment and strolled discreetly to my room; however his disposition prompted the disaster.
Much the same as it is regularly said that pride goes before a fall, there was no chance I would endure such a state of mind.
Did you contact the coordinators of the show?
Truly, I did.
What was their response to the video?
They completed a video disavowing my allegations and saying it was a wrong move.
What do you mean doing to them?
I am suing them. I will ensure no show is done here again if the security of the general population can’t be ensured.

Did Olamide get in touch with you after the video became a web sensation?
No. Truth be told, I accept there is no requirement for that. His haughtiness would not give him a chance to do such.
The administrator said you were just endeavoring to stand out enough to be noticed. Is it valid?
That isn’t valid, however I’m not amazed in light of the fact that I wouldn’t have expected less; that is so average of
Nigerians. I did not understand he was remaining at the inn before I stopped there.
Obviously, what do you anticipate that his chief will state?
Without a doubt, they will dependably make it sound awful for me, however I mind less. I just said things the way they are and I
am certain next time he wouldn’t attempt such and different artistes will likewise gain from this.
