Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade, Nigerian singer and songwriter, popularly known by his stage name Mr Eazi, has asserted that renowned comedian, I Go Dye took his money and failed to show up for his event.
In a recent podcast interview with music journalist, Joey Akan, on Afrobeats Intelligence, he made the accusation against the stand-up comedian.
Mr. Eazi recalled how despite having paid I Go Dye to appear at an event he had planned in Ghana, he never showed up.
He claimed that he would still bring up the incident and insist on receiving his money back anytime he saw I Go Dye.
In his words,
“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 Go Dye if you are hearing this right now, you took money from some Kwame Nkrumah University students and you never showed up.
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.”
