The noted music video director, TG Omori, has claimed that his fellow artist and rapper, Blaqbonez, is engaging in playful banter with him on social media as a strategy to maintain relevance in the music industry.
He stated that Blaqbonez’s career has experienced a significant boost ever since he initiated online conflicts with him.
Recalling the situation, Blaqbonez and TG Omori’s rivalry emerged when the rapper chose to direct the music video for his popular track ‘Back In Uni’ independently, after declining to pay the exorbitant fee demanded by Omori.
During his appearance on the most recent episode of the Zero Conditions podcast, TG Omori expressed his comfort with Blaqbonez’s lighthearted teasing on social media, as long as it remains within acceptable limits.
“Blaqbonez is just trying to use me to prosper. And he is my guy, so I will let him shine. ‘Emeka must shine.’
“Blaqbonez’s biggest video was the TG Omori’s banter; ‘Back In Uni.’ Everybody was trying to watch the video because he added TG. If you can’t afford TG Omori, you use TG Omori’s name.
“It’s understandable. He is my guy; not like we hang out or something. But so long as he has not been disrespectful to me, let the young n*gga shine. His career has gone up since the whole banter thing, I told him to give me 10%. But I would let it slide because we rise by lifting others.”
TG Omori added that he remains the best music video director in the country.
