The ace singer 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 the brouhaha, Kcee 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.
