The feud between Olamide and Don Jazzy may have ended with both artistes apologising for their behaviours at the just concluded Headies 2015, but the dust is yet to settle with Ayo Animashaun, the organizer of the Headies award, saying that a disciplinary committee has been set up to review the actions of the two label bosses.
Olamide had ealier taken to social media to apologise to his fans for his conduct on stage before he and Don Jazzy released a joint statement and photo on their Instagram handles.
In a recent chat with Kemi Filani, Ayo Animashaun disclosed that although the YBNL boss and music artist, Olamide has to come to apologize to him, both parties will still have a meeting with the disciplinary team.
In his words:
“Olamide is like a son to me. What he did was to the Headies and not to me but he has apologized to me personally. He knows the right thing to do because The Headies is a platform that has celebrated a lot of artistes including him. He and Don Jazzy apologized to me the next day. As the executive producer of the award, I do not act unilaterally, I have a board and we have a disciplinary team and very soon, they will come up with a statement on how to handle the whole issue. We would make it public.”
Speaking on whether the votes were rigged, he disclosed that he would never feel offended if asked whether he collected money from any artiste because he is like a father figure and tries not to take sides.
Ayo Animashaun said: “I would feel offended if i’m ever asked whether we collected money from any artiste. I am like a father to them and I try not to meddle or prefer any artiste over the other. We did not influence the results submitted by the screening team and we also did not reveal the identities of all members of the jury. People have gone to the extent of threatening lives if their artistes do not win. I have reported some of them to the police too.”
When asked how he felt about P-Square boycotting the award, Ayo had this to say:
“You cannot have all the artistes in the country around every year. Just a few days before it held, we postponed the awards to two days and no one was given a prior notice. I cannot mandate artistes that were nominated to cancel their previous shows to be present at Headies. If they were billed to perform at another event, they would not return their payment because of Headies so as not to be sued. They performed last year at the Headies last year and they closed the show. I also saw Paul a day after the awards were held and we are fine.”
