I have been trying to follow the drama between Ex Ray (Boondocks Gang) and Miracle Baby (Sailors Gang) and I realized that it’s just a case of two youngins who have let fame get into their tiny heads.

Although I don’t know what caused the fallout that resulted in the name-calling, I believe there are better ways of solving their issues than washing their dirty linen in public.
You see, the truth is that once someone starts getting attention from the public, they start feeling that they own the world and no one can tell them anything. This is what others refer to as an ego.
Ex Ray and Miracle Baby have been getting a lot of attention for the last two years or so and as a result, they have both developed massive egos and we can’t really blame them, it comes with the territory.
The fact that they have been in the industry for a short time means that they don’t understand the do’s and dont’s like for instance you can’t just wake up one morning and call another public figure ‘umbwa’.
They should probably learn from the likes of Khaligraph who have been in the industry for a long time. Although he does not see eye-to-eye with Octopizzo, he can’t just wake up morning and refer to him as a dog.
What he does is to throw low-key shade and in most cases he never mentions his name but if you read between the lines you’ll know that he is talking about Octopizzo. That is how grown ups handle their business.
This is exactly the reason why you need role models. I believe someone like Jimwat would still be relevant today if he had people to guide him and not let fame get into his head.
Ex Ray and Miracle Baby are making the same mistakes in front of our eyes and to be honest there’s little that we can do other than to grab popcorn and follow the drama as it unfolds.
