Olamide Gives Statement On Logo Benz, Says It’s For Awareness
The Motigbana singer posted on Twitter on the 21st of December that he had no idea there was something known as too much awareness because all he believed they were doing with such song is to create awareness on what is presently going on in the society by making that the subject of their song.
The singer went ahead to apologize for creating too much awareness but also defending his action by saying issues like these are also talked about in the movies and the reactions are different.
Logo Benz is for the 3rd party to have a glimpse into the current state of youths in our society. (Runs girls x runs boys) “ I’m not sure if there’s anything like 2 much awareness, but pardon me if there is. It’s all over the news, it’s always been in movies, don’t box musicians.

This explanation is definitely not being accepting by Twitter users that have come across it or fans that also love him as they further expressed their anger at not just his explanation, but on the song which seems to be promoting the ills of the society but they’re other fans who seem to be in support of his explanation, justifying it with thesame reason Olamide did.
Awareness is usually done to bring positive things to light (e.g cervical cancer screening) and educate people on the need to stop wrong practices e.g FGM.
How is this awareness?
You're simply promoting evil!
What Falz did with 'This is Nigeria' is awareness. Not this!

People took this Olamide line in #Logobenz too serious. Man was probably speaking in 3rd party form and saying the minds of desperate ones who do rituals to buy Benz and not actually saying he’ll do money ritual.
We should be more enlightened.

What do you think though? Does this explanation justify the lyrics of Logo Benz?
