Entertainment Roundup: Comedian AY, Sheyman react to M.I’s interview on #LooseTalk Podcast; Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting a baby girl | More stories

Here are the stories you missed from yesterday and others that unraveled over the night – and are still buzzing this Thursday morning.

Celebrities weigh in on MI’s interview with Pulse’s Osagie Alonge on the #LooseTalk podcast

It was the most talked about thing on Nigeria’s internet space yesterday and we will not be getting over it in a while.

After what has been described as “a badly-digested article” doubting the continued relevance of M.I’s music, the rapper was invited on the podcast and as the conversation got deeper, emotions got heightened.

In the heat of the moment, Osagie called M.I’s Chairman album “weak”, prodded him to name his weakest album and threw jabs to his label, Choc City’s upcoming artistes.

M.I’s calm demeanour through it all, the friendly manner with which the conversation eventually ended and how all of it defines something new for the culture was what ripped the internet all day yesterday.

Comedian AY took to Instagram to dish on criticism and artiste’s ability (or lack of it) to take it:

Producer, Sheyman also weighed in calling out Osagie for being rude and unprofessional in his practice of journalism:
