Daniel Benson, better known as BNXN, an Afrobeats singer, has accused his colleagues of stealing his slang, ‘Otilo.’
BNXN made the claim on his social media page, noting that he began saying Ezz Going with his team last year.
They were initially questioning his decision to say Ezz going/Otilo, according to the former Starship Entertainment signee, only for them to copy him.
The Confident crooner said that other artists have started using the slang he popularized even though they do not understand its origin.
One of the buzzing artists who use 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”.
