Top Nigerian rapper IllBliss has reacted to the Oba of Lagos' recent remarks saying that all Igbos leaving in the city of Lagos should vote APC Gubernatorial candidate Akinwunmi Ambode.

On Saturday, April 4, 2015 Oba Rilwan Akiolu in his meeting with Igbo leaders in Lagos state said "On Saturday, if any one of you goes against Ambode who I picked, that is your end. If it doesn’t happen within seven days, just know that I am a bastard and it’s not my father who gave birth to me" he said.

For the Igbos and others in Lagos, they should go where the Oba of Lagos heads to. When they were coming to the state, they didn’t come with all their houses. But now they have properties in the state. So they must do my bidding. And that is the bidding of the ancestors of Lagos and God.I am not ready to beg you. Nobody knew how I picked Ambode. I am not begging anybody, but what you people cannot do in Onitsha, Aba or anywhere you cannot do it here. If you do what I want, Lagos will continue to be prosperous for you, if you go against my wish, you will perish in the water,” the monarch  further said.

IllBliss has reacted to the controversial statement. He responded on Twitter yesterday April 6, 2015. "Dear Oba...truly cant write the next words so i don't make the same error you made...may God forgive you and bless you with more wisdom" he tweeted.
