MC Galaxy, Oritse Femi are proud ingrates – The Young Pioneers
Teenage singing trio, Young Chizzy, Wendy and K-dawg, a.k.a The Young Pioneers (TYP), have accused Sekem crooner, MC Galaxy and double wahala hit maker, Oritse Femi of biting the fingers that once fed them. The teenage music group which is set to drop its new single, Proud Nigerian, alleged that MC Galaxy has become a proud and arrogant person because he is now a celebrity. In a recent chat with Vanguard, the music group condemned artistes who when they become celebrities, neglect people who once helped them. “MC Galaxy has become proud now that he is a celebrity. This is someone that we used to hang out together a lot before.
When we won a flat screen TV at a music competition in 2013, we decided to give it to him because we saw him as a senior colleague and we had no need for it at that time. Immediately our manager called him to come and pick the TV, he quickly jumped on a taxi and rushed down to pick it up, expressing so much happiness that the gift was timely”. Oritse Femi was not left out of the accusation, “when Oritse Femi’s father died, we donated N30,000, a carton of Black label and two bottles of Hennessey. On our way to the venue of the burial, he was even the one calling intermittently to give us directions on how to get there. But now, he has abandoned us”.
