Ace talent manager, Olayinka Babawale known popularly as Wale Applause has accused YBNL boss, Olamide of unfairly firing him. He revealed this in a comprehensive memo which is already causing a stir amongst music industry practitioners and observers.
He also accommodated an account of how he was unjustly dismissed from his assignment as manager to then-buzzing Nigerian artiste, Lil Kesh.
Wale’s ties with the Olamide-led YBNL label traces back to the inception – around the time rapper, Olamide was working on his debut, YBNL album.
“I remember when Olamide dropped YBNL album, that was my first major project. God bless Baddo, he loved me so much. I got some CDS from him, I signed them myself in his name drove down to Ibadan and was handing it out to all radio stations, telling them Ola sent me, whereas, I sent myself. You wonder why YBNL have so much fan base in Ibadan and Ikorodu, I did that. I laid the foundation”, He cited.
Wale went on to disclose that his sack was a result of his over-zealousness and total dedication to the building of Lil kesh who he sporadically referred to as a King.
He alleged that in an attempt to stick up for Kesh who was being black-balled and robbed by industry gatekeepers, he landed himself a letter of termination.
