FAMOUS fuji musician, Alhaji Abass Akande, better known as Obesere, may have further proved his innocence about the rape allegation leveled against him by one Ms. Olanike Olaiya, a couple of weeks back, by releasing a video CD, Rape Scandal, which threw light on the allegation.
The CD which contains Obesere’s interview and that of his witness, Alhaja Bolatito Omo Owo revealed how the incident that almost dragged the name of the sensational musician to the mud happened.
Rape Scandal is being marketed and distributed by De-Wish Entertainment, Mushin, Lagos. And it has been in circulation since its release on Monday, March 17, 2014.
An insider disclosed to ENCOMIUM Weekly that Obesere’s quest to satisfy the yearnings of his teeming fans, home and abroad, informed his coming out with the video CD.
“Obesere has released the video CD which explains better what actually transpired between him and his accuser, Nike Olaiya. I learnt the CD has sold thousands of copies. Everybody wants to see the face of the girl. I also learnt that some music promoters and marketers have been lobbying Obesere for the musical video of the incident, which I learnt may be released before the end of the second quarter of the year. But I think Papa is just waiting for the outcome of the police investigation before going to the studio for the album.”
Speaking with ENCOMIUM Weekly on Friday, March 21, 2014, on the reason he churned out the CD, Tosibe king, as Obesere is fondly addressed, explained, “I want people, especially my fans, to get a clearer picture of what really happened between myself and Nike Olaiya. Also, the inclusion of Alhaja Bola Omo Owo’s interview in the video is to let the public know that I have nothing to hide. I am sure everybody can recognize me, but I want people to also see the face of Alhaja Omo Owo so that they will all know she’s not a fake person. Rape Scandal was produced to explain everything in detail. It wasn’t for monetary reason, but all of a sudden, everybody keeps requesting for a copy.
“By now, Nike should just come out and defend herself. Her picture is also on the jacket of the CD. Everybody knows that Papa can never rape and that will never happen. I believe that won’t be the first time Nike will be swindling men. It’s God that exposed her. That’s why she is running up and down. Everybody has seen the face of a scammer. Very soon, she would show up or be fished out.”
On Saturday, March 22, 2014, Alhaja Omo Owo also corroborated Obesere’s submission, adding that she could go to any length to support the talented singer on the matter.
“My brother, it’s a dirty allegation against Alhaji Abass Akande Obesere, and I am ready to stand by him till we see the end of the matter. It’s unfair for Nike to have done that. Since she left for her home town, Shagamu, Ogun State, one old man has been threatening me. He warned that I should withdraw from the matter or else I would be dealt with. It’s just few days ago that he stopped calling me. That’s the reason I didn’t want my face to appear at all in the CD but later I supported the idea because I know and I am sure I am on the path of the truth. And no evil shall befall me. I want the public to know that I am real. One thing I am sure of is that Nike will soon be declared wanted by the police if she fails to appear at Adekunle Police Station, Panti, Yaba, Lagos for further investigation of the case. She can’t run away anymore, everybody has seen her face now.”
Reacting to the development on Sunday, March 23, 2014, Olaiya said, “Let them go ahead with their video CDs. If they like, they should come out with 10 of such, it doesn’t bother me. Very soon, the whole world will know the truth. All I know is that sinners won’t go unpunished. But I thank God I am okay now.”
Obesere rape mess shocked the industry and beyond when the news broke, via the internet on Monday, March 10, 2014. It has since kept a lot of his fans in doubt as to the authenticity of the weighty allegation, on the ground that the Asakasa crooner is always surrounded by beautiful ladies of different shapes, sizes, heights and complexion.
However, the matter can’t be concluded yet as investigations are still on.
