I WAS DISAPPOINTED BY CLAIMS THAT I SNUBBED BLACK SHERIF AT HEADIES – Nigerian Blogger, Adesope Olajide

Nigerian media personality and entertainment blogger, Adesope Olajide has responded to the backlash he received following a video he posted during the 2023 Headies Awards.

Recall that on September 4, 2023, at the 16th Headies Awards, held in the United States, Adesope—who was recording the events via his personal blog—went to congratulate Rema and Asake. Black Sherif was seated next to them, but his back was to the camera for a brief moment.

However, the 10-second video caused a backlash against Adesope, with many people blaming him on social media of disregarding and demeaning Black Sherif for failing to offer him congratulations.

Reacting to it in a live interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM on November 20, Adesope explained his version of events, stating that he didn’t notice Black Sherif until he was prompted.

He went on to say that he saw security guards approaching just as he was going to address the Highlife star on the video.

“Something happened about two months ago when I went to the Headies Awards. I was on the grounds and ran quickly to film Rema and Asake. I did not know that Black Sherif was there; he even tapped me, but I quickly had to move away because I saw security coming in,” he said.

Adesope said that he was shocked when he saw the backlash targeted at him over the 10-second clip, stating that he had consistently promoted Black Sherif using his platform.

“I did not expect the uproar coming from Ghana. To my disappointment, I saw someone on TV publicly saying to me that I was disrespecting Black Sherif that I had used my platform to promote immensely,” he said.
