The much anticipated OLIC 3 has come to an end and while some thoroughly enjoyed the show, others regret attending it
The show happened on December 26 and reports said it literally shut down the island area of Lagos
Disappointed Fans write letter to Olamide, pointing out the horrible treatment they received at the show
While everyone is raving about the just concluded Olamide Live in Concert (OLIC3) and how lit it was, some fans are writing letters of disappointment to the street bred muscian
OLIC3 happened on the night of December 26, a day after Christmas. The show was one of the most anticipated show of the year. It was shown in its attendance as reports say the whole of the road leading to the venue was blocked.
However as fans and celebrities stepped out in style to rock the event at Eko convention centre, many enjoyed the show but many were left outside till the early wee hours. Fans who were unhappy about this decided to write Olamide a raging letter. See letter below:
The long letter was from the heart of a twitter user in the name of princess Jacki. Here is the highlight of the letter:
Yesterday was OLIC, I never thought I’d say this, but it was zero. Security was zero; organization was zero as well. Firstly, porous security. Anyone, I mean anyone, could literally walk through the gates of Eko hotel. I swear, I didn’t sight one metal detector. People walked in and out as they liked.
I’m sure every Nigerian right now is 150% aware of terrorist attacks and the need for security to be tops at all times especially at social gatherings. Some people said there were dogs. Excuse you, someone could walk in and just start shooting and these people won’t have cared if they died! Security is major key. Anything could’ve happened TBH.
Then to the ‘disorganization’. A lot of people didn’t have tickets; it was no one’s fault. A lot of people ended up getting regular tickets for 15k or more, and VIP for about 30k or 40k – also no one’s fault.
After getting tickets the next thing is to queue up to get tags to get in, and trust me the queue was long ASF. After a while, at about 10 or 11 p.m, they said tags were finished but we needed to hold on a little because they went to get more.
From 11 p.m to 2 a.m a lot of people were outside waiting for tags. These people had tickets but were deprived of what they had paid for, because of the inability for the organizers of OLIC to be effective. It’s just like going to the cinema and more tickets are sold than the number of seats. How dumb can that be? What stopped them from producing tags equivalent to the number of tickets they sold?
Eventually people got really angry. A concert slated for 7 p.m and they were left out till 2 a.m! The guys at the gate, bouncers or whoever, weren’t even making situations better. They were so rude, saying stuff like they don’t know why we were still waiting that the tags were finished, and there’s no space in the hall anymore. There were no fights but they released tear gas on us and used tasers on a few people.
No like FML despite this economic hassle going on. People went out of their way to be there for the concert and this is what they get??? You think it’s so easy to hustle up 5k, 10k, 20k etc? Or you think people don’t have better stuff doing with their money than watching a bunch of musicians perform? Things got emotional ASF yoooo – people were crying. That’s how deep it was.
This isn’t for Olamide alone. All artistes need to get their act together and learn to treat your fans with more respect and love, because without us you’re nothing.
I’m the wildest Olamide fan, but even if they have 10 OLICs after this, I don’t think I’d want to be there. Because it looks like he’s started doing stuff for the rich lads alone, and we’re sorry we can’t afford the gold, silver and platinum.

Nollywood actor Jim Iyke wants a baby girl do bad he's asking God for one publicly.
The actor who has since settled into a very quiet life in Atlanta with his Lithuania girlfriend, Dana Kinduryte says he has no love for any woman.
According to him, "Dear LORD,
I decided to quickly submit this petition before the year runs out. I'll keep it short n straight. The last time we had this convo, King Harv showed up. My life has nv been the same since. It's being an amazing cocktail of unprecedented blessings, self realization, bold endeavors and forging of powerful alliances.
I'm eternally grateful LORD.
Nw to the matter at hand. My sister says I'm a career cynic. My Ghanaian ex says my head is too strong for love. My Nigerian and past exes says I'm amazing but GLADYS took the last iota of love I hv for any woman with her. My longest friend ,UK, seems to agree and my longest biz partner has wisely said he's unsure where to stand in the matter! Smdh!
I want a baby girl LORD. A daughter that will keep me on her permanent MUMU BUTTON since nobody else can. I've done this bf when King Harv came and turned even the hardest skeptics to awe struck as I took fatherhood to the letter as naturally as fish in water.
Pls give me a daughter this time Lord. You know I'm one that never never bring my private affairs to the public but I want this act of vulnerability to be my most ardent test of faith.
I'll be the father fathers dream of. I'll pour my body, soul and spirit into raising her. Besides, King needs a sister to protect and love.
Ok I can already feel you shaking your head in exasperation. But I also glean a little smile beginning. You know how your boy roll! Lol. I'll keep my part of the bargain by doing that 'THING' I pledged wholeheartedly.
Ok let me get out of your space. I know you have more pressing requests to attend to. You've been too good to me this year to ask for anything else..... For now LOL!
Visit anyone in need at the point of their station IJN.
PS: ( ANGEL IN CHARGE) I moved my file from the middle to the top of the stack when the LORD asks for it. A little addendum if you pls; I want her to look like SHADE ADU in her teens with the brains of MICHELLE OBAMA. Right! I don't like the look on your face now. I guess I'm pushing my luck yeah?! OK done! I'm out! Happy Boxing Day Everyone! Enjoy!"
Billionaire daughter, Florence Otedola aka DJ Cuppy has finally opened up on her love life.

The show host, , asked her about him and she said:
"He is good. We are good. He is very busy. Its sad we don't get to spend Christmas together".

I was in New York at that time and she said I think you guys should just go for a coffee. I happened to be in London and he happened to be in London and we went for coffee and the rest is history."
