Afrobeats singer, Daniel Benson, popularly known as BNXN, has called out his colleagues for allegedly stealing his slang, ‘Otilo.’
The Confident crooner said that other artistes have started using the slang he popularized even though they do not understand its origin.
BNXN took to his social media page to make the claim as he noted that he started saying Ezz Going last year with his team.
According to the former Starship Entertainment signee, they were initially questioning his decision for saying Ezz going/Otilo only for them to copy him.
One of the buzing artistes who uses Otilo while either talking or singing is Asake, who has had a successful year.
BNXN wrote; ”First they don’t understand it, then they copy it.
When me and my people were saying “EZZ GOING” last year N as were like ?? now everybody saying EZZ GOING” / “OTILO’ now , mo ti TRABOSKIIII!! ”
A social media used known as Catalyst countered his claim of pioneering the slang as he said that it has been in existence since 2018
He wrote; ”L Last year lol???? Mushin slang since 2018. Waving is the sign of OTILO.”
In response, the singer added; ”You and your mushin ni**as are lying And nobody talking about waving dimmy”.
