“The only thing that Bubu did for me was to award AY over that Uncle 30k. Truly AY has been constantly undervalued. 

“The other uncle has more pride than Elon Musk, meanwhile nothing dey him pocket. I hope the new smallie he’s carrying will finish his money so we can rest”.

Weeks ago, AY made headlines after he revealed that his relationship with his colleague, Basketmouth went sour in 2006 when he (Basketmouth) allegedly held on to N30k which he should have gotten after performing at a gig.

During the interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, AY also revealed that he has made several efforts to clear up things with Basketmouth but not much has changed.
