KCEE IS CONFUSED AND TALENTLESS || HARRYSONG SAYS

After the arrest made on former Five Star Music act now Alter Plate CEO, Harrysong and her label manager Desmond Ike-Chima have been forced to pen down a statement where they call KCee confused and talentless.

According to NigeriaNow, the statement reads;

A FAMOUS SAYING GOES THIS WAY, ‘A CONFUSED MAN IS MUCH MORE AN ANGRY AND FRUSTRATED MAN. 

TO BE HONEST, GOING BY MY NEWEST RESOLVE TO NOT FOR ANY REASON CELEBRATE MEDIOCRITY, LAZINESS AND TALENTLESS PEOPLE, I WOULD HAVE CHOSEN TO BE QUIET AND PRETEND AS IF NOTHING HAPPENED YESTERDAY, JANUARY 27, 2017, BUT GIVING MY ROLE AS A JOURNALIST AS WELL AS A HIGH RANKING MEMBER OF NIGERIA’S MOST TALKED ABOUT MUSIC COMPANY, ALTERPLATE, I HAVE BEEN ‘ARM TWISTED’ SORT OF TO WRITE THIS STATEMENT AND TO FORMERLY ADDRESS THE CONCERNS OF OUR FRIENDS, WELL WISHERS, FAMILY AND FANS WHO ARE CURRENTLY SAVORING OUR NEWEST SOUND, SAMANKWE. 

IT WAS 8 AM AND POLICEMEN ACTING ON THE INSTRUCTION OF THE ASSISTANT INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE IN ONIKAN, STORMED OUR HOTEL ROOM TO INVITE HARRYSONG OVER FOR QUESTIONING. 

AS A LAW ABIDING CITIZEN WITH NOTHING TO FEAR, WE GOT DRESSED UP AND SET OUT FOR THE AIGS OFFICE AND ON GETTING THERE WE WERE GREETED BY THE PRESENCE OF A HAGGARD LOOKING YOUNG MAN IN CHEAP PAIR OF SUIT, IDENTIFIED AS FIVE STAR MUSIC LAWYER. 

HIS AWFULLY SHALLOW REASONING BECAME SO EVIDENT WHEN HE WAS CALLED UP TO DEFEND THE PETITION HE PREPARED ON BEHALF OF HIS CLIENT (FIVE STAR MUSIC). HE SUFFERED A HARD TIME CONVINCING THE AIG AND HIS MEN, INCLUDING A VISITING COMMISSIONER, WHY THE CHARGES AGAINST HARRYSONG WERE CRIMINAL RATHER THAN CIVIL.

EVEN BEFORE ANY MEMBER OF OUR CAMP COULD VOICE A WORD, THE VISITING COMMISSIONER (FROM THE WAY HE SOUNDED, A VERY LEARNED AND EXPERIENCED OFFICER) FROWNED AT THE CONCOCTED CHARGES AND RECOMMENDED THAT THEY DROP THE PETITION AND RATHER FILE A SUIT IN A CIVIL COURT INSTEAD OF BRINGING THE POLICE INTO THE PICTURE.

IN VIEW OF THE LIES PEDDLED ON SOME SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS, I WISH TO STATE HERE CLEARLY THAT:

1. HARRYSONG WAS NEVER WHISKED AWAY BY SOME MOBILE POLICE OFFICERS TO AN UNKNOWN LOCATION;

2. IT WASN’T AN ARREST BUT AN INVITATION BY THE AIG, A HIGH RANKING POLICE OFFICER, WHICH HE HONOURED.

3. A SUPPOSED BREACH OF CONTRACT AS CAPTURED IN THEIR PETITION IS A CIVIL AND NOT A CRIMINAL CASE.

ON THE OTHER HAND, AS AGAINST THE KANGAROO STATEMENT RELEASED BY FIVE STAR MUSIC EARLIER TODAY, I WISH TO ALSO STATE THAT HARRYSONG DID NOT AT ANY TIME APPROACH ANYONE OR COMPANY TO SIGN HIM; IT WAS RATHER THE OTHER WAY ROUND.

KCEE APPROACHED HARRYSONG ON BENDED KNEES TO HELP SALVAGE HIS DYING CAREER AFTER HE FELL OUT WITH HIS THEN PARTNER. AS MUCH AS HARRYSONG LOVED TO HELP HIM OUT IN THAT TIME OF NEED, IT IS WORTHY OF NOTE THAT,

1. HE (KCEE) WAS TALENTLESS AND KNOWS NEXT TO NOTHING ABOUT MUSIC.

2. HARRYSONG HAD A RUNNING CONTRACT WITH QUESTIONMARK RECORDS, BUT OUT OF DESPERATION, KCEE AND HIS FIVE STAR MUSIC WERE PREPARED TO PAY OFF KELVIN LUCIANO IN THEIR QUEST TO HAVE HIM (HARRYSONG) AT ALL COST. IT WOULD BE RECALLED THAT HARRYSONG SUCCEEDED IN RECREATING KCEE’S SOUND, WROTE AND CO-PRODUCED HIS FIRST MEANINGFUL SINGLE, ‘HAD IT BEEN I KNOW’, FOLLOWED BY ‘OKPEKETE’, ‘LIMPOPO’, ‘PULL OVER’ AND OTHER SONGS THAT DEFINED THE KCEE THAT EVERYONE NOW KNOWS AND CELEBRATES TODAY, ALL PRO BONO.

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.

AS THE CASE MAY BE, WE ARE NOT SURPRISED AT THE TURN OUT OF THINGS AND WHY KCEE-LED FIVE STAR MUSIC HAS CHOSEN THE WAY OF REPROACH RATHER THAN THAT OF HONOUR. THE EARLIER THEY WAKE UP TO THE REALITY THAT HARRYSONG HAD LONG DUMPED THEM IN A TRASH BIN AND MOVED ON, THE BETTER FOR THEM, ‘COS’ I CAN TELL YOU FOR FREE, HE IS NOT COMING BACK.

AND TO OUR FANS AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC, I WISH TO APOLOGIZE ON THEIR BEHALF AND TO LEAVE YOU WITH THESE WORDS,

‘KCEE IS CONFUSED AND AS SUCH FRUSTRATED AND WE CAN UNDERSTAND’.

FOR THE RECORDS, ALTERPLATE HAS COME TO STAY AND YOU ARE FREE TO DO BUSINESS WITH HARRYSONG AND ALTERPLATE MANAGEMENT, WE ARE INDEED THE REAL DEAL.

FIVE STAR MUSIC RELEASES STATEMENT ON HARRYSONG’S ARREST

Nigerian entertainer blogosphere is awashed with news of Harrysong’s arrest by estranged label Five Star Music.

Five Star Music has released a press statement on why the arrest was made. The label has also issued a warning to members of the public to desist from transacting business with Harrysong (Harrison Tare Okra).

Read official press release below as issued by Five Star Music. 

It has become both imperative and necessary to state our position on the ongoing misguided and fallacious news making the rounds in the media between our esteemed record label and Mr. Harry Tare Okri.

Sometime in 2008 when Mr. Harry first approached our record label for a music contract, we immediately declined the request when we found out that he had a subsisting contract with one Mr. Kevin Luciano of ‘Question Mark Entertainment Label’.

All efforts then by Mr. Harry to influence our management proved abortive as our position was maintained on grounds of equity, fairness and professionalism.

For further avoidance of doubts on the true facts of the present situation, our management has decided to officially set the records straight, because of negative and pervasive influence being foisted on the psyche of our numerous and well meaning fans.

Our first encounter with Mr. Harry was sometime in 2008 when he approached our management for a music contract. As stated above, according to our findings at that time, his contract with ‘Question Mark Entertainment Record Label’ was still subsisting and valid.

Obviously we declined when we found out that Mr. Harry’s plans were ill orchestrated against his employers, by walking out on them without fulfilling the obligations clearly contained in his running contract with them.

When Harry’s employers (Question Mark Entertainment) got wind of his frantic efforts to desert his contract, a stern and official public statement was issued against Mr. Harry and a certain clause establishing his existing contract was clearly published for full consumption by the general public.
3a. The tussle continued between Harry and his employers till sometime in 2014 when Harry once again approached us, this time very desperate.
We opened preliminary discussions with him but demanded an official document from his former employers relieving him of any obligation or liability with regards to his contract with them.
3b. Our move to do things right and professionally with Mr. Harry earned us a Twenty Million Naira Legal Suit (N20,000,000.00) from Mr. Kevin Luciano of Question Mark Entertainment (Records are there for confirmation). We were joined as co-defendants with Mr. Harry.
Juxtaposing the above with what is going on now, it is quite unfortunate because “Good intentions counts as much as good actions, and the person seeking to do good is as good as someone who actually does it.

3c. Knowing the vulnerability of Mr. Harry on the impending legal suit, we solicited the help of certain well respected individuals in the Music industry to wade into the matter, one of which was our dear veteran Daddy Showkey.

Mr. Luciano having found out our intention from inception to act in good faith, agreed to withdraw his suit against Mr. Harry and our company BUT, not without consequential and settlement fees of Five Million Naira (N5,000,000.00, records available for verification).
We paid this amount solely without Mr. Harry contributing a dime!
It is often said that “When people sense that someone else is vulnerable, they tend to attack, for when the calf falls, the knives come out”.
However, in Mr. Harry’s vulnerable situation, we did nothing of the sort. Rather, we whole heartedly bought all his liability off Question Mark Entertainment Label, and welcomed him as a family into Five Star Music Label, a genuine gesture and decision we are all regretting this present day.

Because we are known for running our affairs professionally and legally, we signed a three year contract with Mr. Harry and certain conditions and obligations were specifically and properly spelled out apart from the terms of the contract.

Most important of these were his obligations to our Music Label, which amongst others include:
That he must deliver at least, three (3) full music albums on or before the expiration of the first term of his three year contract, otherwise the label solely reserves the right either to rescind or extend the contract.
These conditions were never met.

While in the employment of the Five Star Music Label, he must not engage himself in anyway whatsoever, whether directly, by proxy or through a third party in any Music or recording business other than that of Five Star Music. This condition was also repeatedly breached as Mr. Harry has been releasing music, going on tours locally and internationally without our consent or paying the agreed percentage to the label.

Five Star Music wishes to state categorically that this reckless breach of contract by Mr. Harry stands contrary to our company’s work ethics and will therefore be pursued to a logical conclusion using the full instrument of the law.

In setting the records straight, let it be known that before now, the label refrained from instituting any legal actions against him for his blatant breach of contract, just because he was still considered as part of Five Star Music family.

However, his posture as clearly manifested through his lawyers whom have continued to write and make all kinds of assertions and threats to the label necessitated our immediate response for the general public to know the truth and inherent facts of the story. For it is said, that facts speaks for themselves.

We therefore advice the general public to tread with caution and desist from transacting any business with Mr. Harry Tare Okri, as same is both illegal and a total breach of his existing contract with our record Label, ‘Five Star Music Label’.
Notwithstanding what propaganda he feeds the public, we further advice that proper verifications are made from us, as there is no iota of truth emanating therefrom.

Signed
Mr. C.C Chris
Five Star Music Limited

HARRYSONG ARRESTED BY POLICE OVER DISPUTE WITH FIVE STAR MUSIC

Harrysong former member of Five Star Music has been arrested by management of his ex record label.

AM GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL – BRYMO

Controversial singer Brymo says he is “going straight to hell”.

The “Prick No Get Shoulder” singer Brymo has made a rather ridiculous statement on twitter. It’s difficult to ascertain the depths of his statement when he tweeted he will be “going straight to hell” when he eventually dies. He added that’s where all good people go.

Olawale Ashimi aka Brymo tweeted this.“When I die I am going straight to hell, its where all the good people go.” 

HOW I HAVE KEPT MY MARRIAGE GOING FOR 10 YEARS – DAREY

Award winning R&B singer Darey Art Alade and his wife Deola Ayeni Art-Alade have been married for 10 years. In an industry where marriages crash per-minute, we thought to ask him the secret to his successful union that’s already blessed with two kids.

‘By just taking things easy, it’s the grace of God. Also, spending time with your family, it is important to realize what is important to you, put your family first. You have to protect your family and you keep answers to such questions very short. You don’t want to say too much, saying too much is unnecessary.

It’s really nobody’s business. The tongue and teeth fight but still in the same mouth. Brothers and sister have arguments too. Nobody has a perfect relationship but it is how you manage yourself that is important. Once you start involving the public or different people, it gets a bit difficult. I didn’t get married because I want to count 50 years or what people will say about me, I got married for myself’ he said.

Reacting to a statement made by Flavour in 2016 where he said ‘it’s impossible to be in the industry and have a successful marriage’, Darey says, ‘what am I supposed to think? He was speaking for himself lol! He wasn’t talking about me. How do I answer the question when I am living in the situation? I am already an answer to the question.

But away from that, there are lots of responsibility involved in marriage and if you are not ready for it, then you are not ready for it, but it is important to speak for yourself. You can’t generalize’.
