Nigerian singer, Lil Kesh has reacted to
Reekado Banks claims that he is a better
musician than him.
Reekado Banks had made a statement during
his Thank You Concert in Ibadan in which he
said that he was better than Lil Kesh and that
there was no basis for comparison.
It should be recalled that the two artistes had
A ‘beef’ at the 2015 Headies Awards. Reekado
Banks took home the award for the Next Rated
Artiste, which came with a new SUV and this
caused a stir as some people had thought Lil
Kesh would win the award.
Lil Kesh in an interview with Saturday Beats,
said: “I saw the video online where Reekado
Banks said that he was better than me, but I
have nothing to say about that. I don’t care
what anybody says, and I don’t have any
feelings regarding what he said because I am
just in my own world.”
“I was not scared when I took the step to leave
Olamide’s record label. I am never scared; I just
knew it was the right move, so I was never
scared. So far, I think the steps have helped
more as a person and as a brand. For one, I am
a better person mentally and right now, I am
not an instrument for the growth of someone’s
business. Instead, I am instrumental to my
“Looking at the financial side as well, it was a
good step. I cannot say I would reap what I
have sown immediately, but every move I make
now is to ensure I have a brighter future. I am
doing all this for the future.
“When I announced that I left Olamide’s record
label, some people were sceptical, but I proved
them wrong by releasing hit songs. To me,
there was no option of failure; it was a win-win
situation. That was my strength and my fans
have been so amazing in motivatting me.
Thanks to my fans. With little effort, the results
have always been amazing.
“Life as a label owner compared to when I was
under a record label is good, but I have more
responsibilities now. Life is a bit tougher now
because of the responsibilities; it depicts
growth and leaving YBNL was a very big step
my life,” the singer said.
