Fameye Speaks For The First Time After Allegedly Slapping His Manager

Cobby Sackitey by

Fast-rising Ghanaian musician Fameye, popularly known for his hit song Nothing I get, has reacted to reports that he slapped OGB Music boss, Ogidi Brown in a viral video.

News broke out on Monday that Fameye has left his label after slapping his manager during a heated argument.

In an exclusive interview on SVTV Africa, Fameye explained his side of the story and apologized.

He told host DJ Nyaami that, he signed the Europe tour contract because management permitted him to do that. He explained that the argument started when his manager wants to collect the money from his Europe tour but he never slapped his manager or anybody as the video portrayed. 

"My Europe tour was great. I met the promoters to sign the contract because my manager is not here so he permitted me to do that on his behalf. 

"The issue is that, my manager came to the show to take the money from the Europe tour and it happened so because, the promoters don't know my management but me, so when he asks for the money, I told him since I arrived 2 weeks ago you've never checked on me to know whether I'm good or not but when it came to money, you're here. 

"So I told him, he should hold on because I've used some part of the money to buy dress among other things for myself but he said no and that's where the argument started. Not knowing they were videoing me, and I asked why are they doing that, so I smacked the phone and left. I never slapped my manager, as the video portrayed," Fameye said. 

Fameye added that none of his management team showed up for his tour in all the countries and felt been treated unfairly by the label but he can't fault them because they were busy. He noted that regardless of everything he is not leaving the record label. 

The 'Nothing I Get' hitmaker further apologized to his management for everything.

"Ghanaians I'm sorry if they say I've slapped my manager, OGB, I'm sorry please forgive me as your younger brother. Let's go back to our old ways"

Fameye is currently out with his new single entitled "Mati" produced by LiquidBeatz.
