Indigenous rap star, Olamide, has dropped a new single, titled ‘c.Ronaldo’. The ‘Science Student’ rapper announced the song release on Instagram. Olamide, who is a fan of Barcelona FC, outraged some of his fans days ago when he praised C.Ronaldo, a Real Madrid player over Lionel Messi – the ‘Barca god’. ‘Because I’m a Barcelona fan is not enough reason for me to deny that C.Ronaldo is great and the most hardworking player in the history of football. Gbefun, make God no deny you your right. Update lori titi ororo!!!’, Olamide said on Instagram. However, the post drew quick rejoinder from many fans informed about the Messi-Ronaldo rivalry as pointed out to the rapper that the Argentine skilful player (Messi) was the better of the duo. A fan, Kboss1010 said: “am glad you said ‘the most hardworking, but not the best. Abeg everybody wey sabi football know say Messi na baba”. Another fan said praising Ronaldo was Olamide’s ploy of getting the Portuguese footballer to follow him on Instagram. The fan, @petkoffrex said: lol…U sef wan Ronaldo follow u too.” The fan claimed another singer, Davido did a similar thing. @elvooolii wrote: If you (Olamide) is a Barca fan, you will know Messi is the best player in history. Meanwhile, Olamide launched his own television channel – Voice of The Street (VOTS) on Thursday.
