- It’s been a while since the music group Artquake came to public attention
- But due to the insensitive efforts of one of the duo, the group is attracting bad publicity for themselves
- It all started with a trip to London
Fans of Nigerian music in the early 2000s will remember Artquake. The music duo made up of Ice K and Adx. They were responsible for hit songs like Alanta and Abule.
Little is known about the personal lives of the two members but Ice K recently invited a barrage of insults for himself.
He was in London recently and while he was taking a walk, he came across a beggar who appeared to be of Nigerian origin. The man wasted no time in asking for his help but instead of Ice K to give him a little change or just ignore him if he didn’t want to help, he gave the man N100 asking him to go ahead and change it to Pounds.
While this is a strange way of helping, Ice K further mocked the man in Yoruba saying that his life has been destroyed. His reason for doing so was because the man was a drug addict who did not need to be encouraged.
Nigerians were not happy with his explanations and they made their thoughts known. Many blasted him for his insensitivity. Even his colleague in the industry, producer Sheyman condemned him.
