“It was at a Lagos @ 50 event and i had gone to the event with 9ice, whom by the way is humble to a fault despite his achievement. As I entered the event , the presenter that was interviewing Lil Kesh saw me and hailed me. The presenter was trying to interview me but I had to pay respect to Lil Kesh whom he was interviewing prior to my arrival. But things went sour with him and to my utter dismay, he yelled at me and pushed my hands off as i made to shake or embrace him. I never see myself as a competitor with him because our style of music is different.”
Demmie Vee continued; “He said ‘guy wetin happen? I sabi you?’” “I explained to him that i just wanted to say hi, but he yelled again ‘for what? why you wan greet me? ”.
“I was shocked and extremely embarrassed. I felt like the ground should just open up and swallow me because people were looking at me and i am generally a free minded person. I was like what’s bad in showing love to someone?. Yet i saw this dude relating to a couple of people, so not like he was in a bad mood or something. My biggest regret was greeting him in the first place.But am over it. It happens, ” he said.
Demmie who is also very close to Tubaba and has shot and released a video with the music legend disclosed that the incident that day has made him to be conscious and reluctant to approach colleagues he admires whenever he sees them at event because he doesn’t know what their reactions might be.
