It has been quite a battle between some artistes, music promoters, managers and Ovie of notjustok.com. According to the above mentioned people who have teamed up as a group, are accusing the notjustok.com boss of being partial about the songs on his website. 'He promotes the songs of his friends online and hardly welcomes any upcoming artiste who does not belong to his clique', a music promoter said. The message which was spread across BB yesterday reads thus;
@Ovie of notjustok.com is a fucked, stupid and useless guy. He is playing politics and cliq fing. Why should we the poor then patronize him, if he can't post the up and coming stars on his website for the whole world to see. There wld be a change soon, if we can work hand in hand 2 tackle this issue.

Aside this and the many tweets we saw, one tweet really got our attention and it was the one of music producer and the pioneer of coded tunes who dropped a voice on this. 'Why must people die b4 u appreciate them? Errybody standing 4 d ghetto king dagrin yet nt standing 4 wat he stood 4! D STREET!' directed at Ovie.
Anyway I got in touch with Ovie, and he denied rejecting any upcoming artiste's song and even asked me to login to the site and be the judge. We can only hope this fight stops now before it gets out of hand, as some artistes are already taking sides. And if care is not taken, this might leave a big crack in the music industry.
