#OLIC4: Low Turnout Dampens Expectation Of A Sold Out Show

By Promise Iwunze

The fourth edition of Olamide’s annual concert OLIC4 is underway at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos.

For the first time since the rap artiste started the series, it’s taking place outside of Eko Hotel at the 24,000 capacity arena. The logic was that as his fans continue to grow in number, he needed a bigger venue to host his thousands of fans.

Vheektor Okpala, our correspondent on ground reports that although the concert started much later than the advertised time of 12pm, the stadium is far from being filled up.

#OLIC4 Olamide is known for always supporting young acts. An array of fast rising musicians are having back to back moments on stage but the fans are not having it as plastic bottles are already hitting the podium.

#OLIC4 UPDATE: Security is TIGHT! As heavily armed and unarmed agents are positioned strategically in and outside the stadium. But there is a biting technical issue – the sound is fluctuating. The technical team appears to be fixing it.

I’m not anti Olamide or anti OLIC biko…

I’m just saying that this is Nigeria and in Nigeria, your security is in your own hands.

If somebody can get robbed inside Eko hotel, what is Teslim Balogun Stadium? Lol

Some of the reasons may include the fear of insecurity expressed by a number of fans.

Others have declared that the roster of artistes includes a certain Yomi Sars, a member of the much criticised Special Anti-Robbery Squad- which they teemed as Olamide’s insensitive to the conversation around the dreaded squad- that people have denounced in recent times.

So Olamide is giving Yomi SARS a platform to perform at OLIC 4.

It’s one thing to be ignorant & not understand consequences of your actions. It’s another thing to be aware of it but completely detached from the reality that’s going on around you.

Zero emotional intelligence.

The fact that Olamide is planning to put Yomi SARS on that stage is enough reason for people to boycott the show.

Olamide invited yomiSARS to perform at his concert. What do y’all expect from an illiterate Like olamide? He’s just fortunate that he made it in the industry,if not Na dead smello.

Those present at OLIC the best thing to do now, is to start Booing Yomi SARS when he gets on stage to perform.. Give him embarrassment of life.

You want to come and perform to the same youth you are chasing around and calling yahoo boys?

Jeje people… #EndSARS
