The war of words between Nigerian music superstars Kcee and Harrysong seem to not stop as Kcee claims that he was the one who picked and brushed Harrysong up.
He said this in a chat with Saturday Beats. It is coming few days after Harrysong posted a court document showing that Kcee had dragged him to court. Harrysong’s manager, in an interview, also said that Kcee filed the lawsuit because his career was dead. .
While reacting to this publication, The Limpopo crooner said, “When Harrysong was with us, we paid for his video shoots. He never travelled with his money and I am saying that with all confidence. I challenge him to contradict what I am saying. .
When I met Harrysong, he had no visa on his passport. We gave him his visas. He travelled business class even when he had yet to release any song under Five Star. .
He started travelling business class just to build self-esteem and confidence. He shot all his videos internationally and I can show you all the invoices. Most of his videos were shot abroad.” .
Kcee further warned his former label mate to tread carefully as he had enough evidence to nail him. He added that he found it laughable for anyone to say that his career is dead without Harrysong. .
According to him, he had remained in the Nigerian music industry for over a decade. He was quick to remind his critics that he won Star Quest with his former singing partner, Presh, without Harrysong’s help. .
Kcee said that he later went on to sign with Kennis Music where he released three albums with numerous hits without Harrysong’s input. “He needs to be careful. Harrysong never influenced our sound; instead we polished his sound and we added more groove to it. .
For me, I have my own weaknesses and he also has his element. I started as a DJ and I know what the people want and I direct his music. If you ask most of our producers, I changed the direction of his song, Better Pikin. .
He sometimes advised in my song; we had a collaborative relationship. When you work as a team, it does not mean you own everybody; you cannot just write somebody off. ..
Because you bring in inputs does not mean you should look down on anybody, it is wrong. We are all human and I deserve some credit. I have been in this industry for a while,” he said.
Meanwhile, Harrysong replies Kcee with this words;
Harrysong did not at any time approach anyone or company to sign him; it was Kcee [who] approached Harrysong on bended knees to help salvage his dying career after he fell out with his then partner [Presh].
“As much as Harrysong loved to help him out in that time of need, it is worthy of note that Kcee is talentless and knows next to nothing about music.
“Harrysong had a running contract with Questionmark Records, but out of desperation, Kcee and Five Star Music were prepared to pay off Kelvin Luciano in their quest to have Harrysong at all cost.
“It should be recalled that Harrysong succeeded in recreating Kcee’s sound, as he wrote and co – produced hits including Had it been I know, Okpekete.
“Limpopo, Pull Over and other songs that defined the Kcee that everyone now knows and celebrates today.
“For what it’ s worth, Harrysong’s dealing with Five Star Music was with the clause that he would be left to pursue his career whenever he deemed it fit. For the records, Altarplate has come to stay and the general public can do business with Harrysong and Alterplate management.”
