Oluwatosin Ajibade, a.k.a. Mr Eazi, a popular Nigerian musician, has accused comedian I Go Dye of stealing his money.
During an interview on the Afrobeats Intelligence podcast, Mr Eazi explained how the comedian failed to appear at a concert he organised in Ghana despite being paid to perform.
Mr. Eazi, who is married to Temi Otedola, stated that other artists, such as Sarkodie, showed up even though he had not paid him in full. R2Bees had also recognised the occasion.
The singer claimed he had no idea Wande Coal, who was scheduled to perform, had not been paid in full until he failed to appear at the event.
Mr Eazi also stated that I Go Dye, who was supposed to collect his money, wasn’t there. He stated:
“I had the first social award of my university, Swagatainment Award. That was when I booked R2Beees, Wande Coal and Sarkodie. Wande Coal was in town but didn’t show up at the event. I did not know he didn’t receive his full money.
“I was like begging Sarkodie. It was about $2,500. Please, come on stage even though I have not paid you in full. And he saved me by coming on stage. That is why he is more than a friend. He is my brother. I had Sarkodie, R2Bees. I Go Dye ran away with my money.
“I remember texting him that ‘you never pay me my money.’ I hope the next time I see him, I will tell him bro, you still need to pay me my money. it is not a beef. It is somewhere in the back of my mind.”
