Olisa Adibua“In September 2014, BEAT FM OAP Olisa Adibua started his entertainment interview show on YouTube called ‘The Truth With Olisa Adibua‘. The interview series has featured top Nigerian celebrities such as Wizkid, Davido, P Square, Genevieve Nnaji, M.I and others. The show has flown off to rave reviews because of Olisa’s ability to ask his celebs tough questions.

While the show is no doubt good, investigations have found out that Olisa’s YouTube based show bears a strong resemblance to another interview series called ‘The Truth‘ hosted by Elliot Wilson. Who is Elliot Wilson? Elliot Wilson is arguably Hip Hop’s greatest rap journalist. He is regarded as the G.O.A.T (greatest of all time) in Hip Hop journalism circles. After being the Editor-in-Chief Of XXL Magazine, he founded a rap website by the name of Rap Radar.” – The Pulse Ng has the full story.
