I have no regrets for not being able to perform at OLIC - Yomi SARS (photo)


Abayomi Ekundayo popularly known as Yomi SARS, has opened up on his inability to perform at Olmaide's OLIC.

According to sources, Yomi was unable to perform as the organisers didn't know what to expect should he go on stage following the #ENDSARS campaign that have taken over social media.

Speaking on the issue, Yom told Sunday Scoop;



“Olamide is my friend; we started OLIC together. When he did the first and second editions, I was yet to make a name in the music industry. The fact that he invited me to the concert a big deal for me. I don’t feel bad that I couldn’t perform because there was nothing anyone could do about it. Olamide did his best and it wasn’t his fault that I didn’t perform. The crowd is not to blame as well because it was a tense situation.”

He continued;
“The people at the concert venue were happy when they saw me. Even top personalities who came to the concert told me they came to watch my performance and felt bad that I didn’t perform.

“I was there from the beginning till the end. After OLIC, I still went to the beach with friends and no one attacked me. I’m not bordered by the comments on social media.”

According to Yomi, he now works with the IGP Intelligence Response Team, but many people think he is still with the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

When you search, SARS on Goggle, it brings out picture. But I left SARS three years ago. We are the team that arrested the notorious kidnapper, Evans. Look at what I went through on Sunday because people know me as Yomi Sars. But I don’t regret being a policeman; it has brought me to the limelight.”

On music;
“But for music, you wouldn’t have called me for an interview. Professionally, I started music two years ago but I have been doing music since my days in the police academy.

“I have released many singles, but Adoyoyo, which I released in October, caught people’s attention. In November, to mark my birthday, I released another song, Say No to Drugs. Both videos and audios are online. The latter was produced by Young John. I plan to drop my debut album, Police Is Your Friend, next year.”


On family;
“I am the last of six children. My mother was in the police force before she died.”
