My Song Isn't aimed at mocking Kan Dapaah - Musician

Cobby Sackitey by

 

UK-based Ghanaian musician, Lady Sledge has stated that her ‘Fab3 Woso’ song is not a diss song directed at National Security Minister Kan Dapaah.

Few weeks ago, Ghanaians woke up to the trending news of the Minister of National Security, Hon. Albert Kan Dapaah modeling for a lady other than his wife in a video.

The video has received massive condemnation from Ghanaians on social media and traditional media as well.

Since Lady Sledge released her ‘Fab3 Woso’ song, several people have argued that the song was directed towards Kan Dapaah.

However, in an interview with DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, Lady Sledge said, the song was already out even before the Ministers’ issue came out. She added, the mentioning of Minister in the song is nothing but a mere coincidence.

“Somebody threatened me for mentioning Minister in the song. But even in Church, we got Minister in Church; that doesn’t mean the song has something to do with the Minister. No, coincidentally the Minister issue came, but Fab3 Woso is already done. The intention behind the song wasn’t for the Minister.” She said.

Lady Sledge added that, “Even the video is coming up, you’ll not see anything like pyjamas and all that, it depicts differently while the Minister’s situation is there. So that’s where I’m having a bit challenging but at the end of the day, because it wasn’t purposely for the Minister, I don’t care.”

Lady Sledge is currently working on the video for her single ‘Fab3 Woso’.

We are capable of writing our songs – Krymi and Mr. Drews Fight Kurl Songx

Cobby Sackitey by

 

Highly Spiritual’s very own, Krymi and Mr. Krymi has rebutted Kurl Songx’ claim over the Dw3 hit single being his.

According to the ‘Jennifer Lomotey’ hitmaker, the song titled ‘Dwɛ’ by Krymi and Mr Drew featuring Sarkodie belongs to him but the boss of Highly Spiritual Music, Kaywa, gave the song to his former label mates.

However, Krymi and Mr. Drew in an interview with DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa stated that, they wrote word for word, every lyric in the song.

“First of all, I wrote the song myself, Krymi also wrote his part, the song belong to both Krymi and I; and we all wrote our part. But the beat was produced by Kaywa and every beat has its melody, so we use that melody to write the song. So I was surprise when Kurl Songx said the song belongs to him.” Mr. Drew said.

Krymi also added that, “I can tell you for a fact that, lyrics wise, I feel my lyrics. I don’t need to steal anything from Kurl Songs, I don’t need anything from anybody. What I do is, I learn and take advice from the seniors in the game even the young ones but I don’t steal songs from anyone. So it hurt when after I have taken my time to do something, somebody will come out and say it belongs to him, it makes me feel very bad.” Krymi added.

He further supported his claim with videos of the studio sessions that led to the birth of the hit single.

Mr. Drew pointed out that, in any case, boss of Highly Spiritual Music owns the beat and can give it to any artiste of his choice.

 

Krymi however concluded that, amidst the brouhaha, he is ever ready to collaborate with his former label mate Kurl Songx if management agrees to it.
