OAP Benny Ark reacts after being blasted for trolling Tiwa Savage
Popular Abuja-based OAP Benny Ark who had earlier given his opinion of singer Tiwa Savage and whom he believes she shouts in her songs, have been blasted by her fans.
But in his reaction to the lashing, the OAP, Benny has insisted that his opinion counts and he can speak authoritatively as an experienced stakeholder in the entertainment industry.
Let me state this unequivocally clear that given the years I have put into my craft as a broadcaster/OAP, I occupy a premise as an authority to give critique to music and the custodians of it as an art form ..
I won’t meander the maze of mediocrity with the popularity or resort to sycophancy just to be liked or accepted . I have had my fair share of fame as an OAP as one of the best legacy Abuja ever had on its airwaves .For a career that’s spanning over 13years and still counting , I am one of the gatekeepers entrusted with our airwaves and so,I will give my professional unbiased critique regardless of who’s ox is being gored. We’ve gotten so use to mediocrity in so much, we confuse it for excellence and Superstar!
