In a recent chat in the Ginger Yourself Podcast, Lyta explained that he didn’t leave YBNL “intentionally.”
“I want to be back with YBNL. What I did back then [leaving YBNL Nation] wasn’t intentional. I didn’t hear from Olamide before leaving and after I left, he just locked up.
“But I’ve spoken to him since leaving. I chatted with him via Instagram on his birthday and he responded.”
When questioned about Olamide following him on Instagram, the ‘Monalisa’ crooner said, “No. He is not following anybody on Instagram.”
