Seriously it has been the talk of the year since After the epic happenings from the simply closed Headies awards which Reekado Banks of Mavin records was awarded the ‘Next Rated Artiste’ over YBNL’s artiste Lil Kesh which prompted a lot of tirades and beef by the two mark CEOs Don Jazzy and Olamide Baddo.
A lot of fans were in backing of Lil Kesh while Mavins too had their own particular fans in backing of Reekado Banks. After all rantings and beef which did not surpass 24 hours (what was the need for the beef in the first case *sigh*), both sides accommodate and issues an expression of apology to their fans.
YBNL artiste Lil Kesh acknowledged defeat and released a new single titled ‘Ibile‘ which was started to trend immediately and alot of YBNL fans adored and lauded Kesh’s endeavors on always producing hits and took after by solid backing from the Mavin team. Lil Kesh’s Ibile enjoyed a large number of downloads in couple of hours.
Mavins’ next rated Reekado Banks likewise turned out solid with his very own single and video directed by Clarence Peters (boy no wan dull, lol!) Reekado released ‘Oluwa Ni‘ which is a hit, Reekado not baffling his fans again has possessed the capacity to win their hearts even though some wanted floating Kesh’s direction ‘cos of the beef which came through on the platform of the Headies awards.
After clearly listening to the two singles from both teams it seems there is a lowkey competition in the air between Mavins and YBNL by trying to prove who really deserves to be the next rated artiste.
Listen to both singles, judge for yourself and let us know who you think truly should be next rated.
