Nigerian rapper Oladips recently took aim at celebrity blogger Tunde Ednut in a video, expressing his frustration over Ednut’s apparent reluctance to promote his album.
During an Instagram live session, Oladips pointed out the inconsistency, mentioning that despite Ednut swiftly sharing content about Oladips allegedly being deceased for three days, he seemed hesitant to assist in promoting his new album.
Oladips further explained that on Sunday, November 3rd, 2023, he reached out to Ednut, requesting promotion for his album, despite Ednut previously posting about his purported death.
The rapper even offered to pay a reasonable fee for promotional services, but Ednut reportedly stopped communication after the initial conversation. This left Oladips feeling disappointed and aggravated by the blogger’s lack of response.
Oladips expressed his deep frustration over Tunde Ednut’s swift posting about his supposed death for three days yet ignoring his messages regarding the promotion of his latest album. He criticized Ednut and other Nigerian media platforms for leveraging his name for engagement without extending support to promote his album.
The rapper emphasized that using his alleged demise to garner likes and comments without backing his musical projects was problematic. He called for a balance, insisting that if they continued using his death for engagement, they should also actively promote his album to maintain a fair and respectful equilibrium.

As expected, the video stirred mixed reactions, while some accused Oladips of being entitled in nature, others threw their weight behind him as they referred to Tunde Ednut as a hypocrite.
