Nigerian producer turned singer, John Saviours Udomboso, also known as Young John and his colleague, Olakira have clashed on social media over music supremacy.
It all started with a fan expressing surprise that Olakira’s newly released song ‘Ileke’ was on the Nigerian top 10 charts by Beat FM.
The tweep known as Provii shared the music video for Ileke and told netizens that they should see the type of song that is maintaining the 10th spot. He alleged that the artiste is one of those who uses the much talked about streaming farm.
“See wetin dey enter top 10😂😂, wetin streaming farm no go cause,” he tweeted.
Reacting to the comment, Olakira compared his single to Young John’s song, Aquafina, which he said is topping charts but is not being listened to by anybody in real life. He bragged that the reason Ileke was on that particular chart was because it was compiled using organic airplay.
Olakira wrote; “Lmao you think say this one nah aquafina wey dey para for apple charts but nobody dey hear irl? Your foolish self don’t know this particular charts is measured by organic airplay, strictly for organic artists”
The comparison did not sit well with Young John, who accused the ‘Maserati’ crooner of trying to use his name to gain cheap promotion to revive his dead career.
“Dead guy looking for free promo! congrats” he wrote.

In sports news…
WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury recently ruled out the possibility of participating in a four-man tournament which featuring British boxer, Anthony Joshua.
Four months into the year and the ‘Gypsy King’ has yet to step in the ring despite series of negotiations with Oleksandr Usyk over an undisputed fight – it ended in failure to reach an agreement.
Radio host Simon Jordan, during a programme suggested that negotiations were underway for a four-man tournament featuring Fury, who would face Usyk, while Joshua could step in the ring with Deontay Wilder on the same night.
These claims were apparently confirmed by Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott, who revealed that negotiations were underway.
Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn also admitted that Saudi Arabia had expressed interest in the idea. But Fury quickly dismissed the fan-friendly format in a post on his Instagram story.
The WBC champion wrote; “I can confirm that these rumours are absolute bulls***.”
He hasn’t fought any contender since he stopped Derek Chisora in a routine trilogy bout last December. But Fury in a recent post shared a picture of himself returning to the gym alongside training partner Joseph Parker, which sparked speculation that he could be looking at a return date.
