Lil Kesh – “I Have Been Able To Save Lives With My Song ‘Logo Benz”
Nigerian rapper cum singer Lil Kesh says he has no regrets about his most recent track ‘Logo Benz’ which has very controversial lyrics.
While speaking with Sunday Scoop, the music star born,
Keshinro Ololade said he was inspired by the recent trends on social media and society at large.
“Logo Benz was inspired by things we saw on social media and in our environment. One of the trending news now is how people are stealing pants for money rituals. One of those things they buy with the money is Benz cars. We thought we should do a song about it and create awareness; this is what we have been doing as musicians. But I guess people got the wrong impression. When it came out, it was heavily criticized and people felt we were promoting money rituals. I understood why it happened because some parts of the lyrics were not too clear. If we had looked for a better way to put the story out there, people would have understood it better.”
Lil Kesh who featured his former boss on the track said that he besides having no regrets about his song, it has also saved lots of lives.
“We have been able to create so much awareness on the issue and I am sure we have been able to save lives. Even if it was just one person we saved by releasing the song, I am happy. I don’t live with regrets. If I could go back in time, I would still release the song. But this time, we would do it in a way that it would not be misunderstood.”
The YAGI boss said that he was aware that the song would generate a lot of controversies even before its release.
“I didn’t know the controversies would be this much. I intend to address the issue, but I wanted the tension to drop. If I had come online immediately to address it, people might still not pay attention to me,” he said.
