Iceberg Slim is unhappy with Peter of Psquare and Phyno, who he accused of copying his hairstyle and has pleaded with them to stop it so that he can have his own brand identity.
In an exclusive interview with Punch Newspaper, fast rising musician, Olusegun Olowokere popularly known as Iceberg Slim, has slammed two of his colleagues, Peter Okoye of Psquare and Phyno, who he accused of copying his hairstyle.
The singer who is signed to Tiwa Savage’s ex husband, TeeBillz’ 323 Entertainment, said his voice and his hairstyle are the unique features that distinguish him from other musicians, pleaded with them to stop it so that he can have his own brand identity.
“I don’t sound like anyone else, from my accent to my tone and diction. I try to constantly reinvent my hairstyle, so that I do not look like anyone else either. So far, these two things have been distinguishing factors.
“When I started the MoHawk in Nigeria, I saw the likes of Phyno and Peter (P-Square) replicate it. I later changed my hairstyle and decided to just do one single braid going to the back, now I see X-Busta and a few others have reproduced it, once again. If they weren’t entertainers, this would probably be fine.
Well, I’ve changed it yet again! Please, no more copying,” he said.
The singer who says he draws his inspiration from notable superstars like Drake, Kanye West and TuF@ce, lauded the Nigerian music industry, affirming that it has definitely come a long way.
He said, “I’m honestly impressed at the level of success and global recognition we have achieved thus far. It can only get bigger and better with time.”
