November 24, (THEWILL) – Nigerian singer, Yemi Alade, has supported rapper, Emeka Akumefule, aka Blaqbonez, who accused some of their colleagues of using ‘streaming farms’ to inflate their streaming numbers.
Streaming farms are services that play music on existing online platforms to massively inflate the number of times people have streamed a song.

He also likened them to convicted fraudster, Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi. “Awon hushpuppi.”
Alade, who responded to his tweet, “Never saw a ‘realer’ tweet! Somebody please frame this tweet for me. I want to hang it on my wall.”
