Ever since Dice Ailes released the hit single Otedola, there’s been different opinions as to why he chose the title “Otedola” with some even saying he did the song to gain financial favours from the billionaire business man, Femi Otedola.
The Chocolate City artiste in a recent chat with Sunday Scoop has now revealed the whole idea behind the hit song, he said:
“Whatever you do, people will always have their reservations and opinions, but I didn’t do the song to get money from Otedola or to get close to his family. I was just having fun. Surprisingly, upon releasing the song, I got to meet Otedola and he gave me a lot of money. I am also close to the family members and I call him on the telephone whenever I like. I didn’t plan for all these as some people have said.”
“Like I said earlier, I wasn’t paid to sing about Otedola. In the song, I was calling many names. I was just looking for iconic names that would bring out the best in the song. Since I was talking about money and Otedola is a billionaire, I felt I should use his name. Honestly, anything could have been the title of the song, but I settled for Otedola because it was one of the first names I mentioned while singing.”
