Your Limpopo Master, Kcee begged me to save his dying career – Harrysong

When talented songwriter and singer, Harrysong announced some months ago that he was leaving his former record label, Five Star Music to set up his own company, Altar Plate, discerning observers knew that it was a move that would be accompanied by drama for a long time to come. Even though the two major parties involved, Kcee and Harrysong, made it seem like there was no hard feelings between them, the gloves have finally come off.

 

On Friday, Nigerians were treated to the news that Harrysong had been whisked away to a police station on the order of Five Star Music. Shortly after he was released, Five Star Music claimed in a statement that Harrysong had begged Kcee profusely to be signed to his label some years ago. The statement also painted a picture of an ungrateful Harrysong who was fond of abandoning contracts halfway like he allegedly did with his first record label, QuestionMark Entertainment.

However, in a swift reaction to Five Star’s statement, Harrysong claimed that it was actually Kcee who begged him on bended knees to help ‘salvage his dying career.’

In a statement made available to Sunday Scoop by Altar Plate and signed by the company’s media manager, Desmond Ike-Chima, Harrysong also claimed that he was not arrested by the police, rather he was invited by officers from the Onikan Police Station in Lagos. The statement reads in part, “It was 8am 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 went to the AIG’s office. On getting there, we were greeted by the presence of a haggard looking young man in cheap suit, identified as Five Star Music’s lawyer.

 

As against the kangaroo statement released by Five Star Music, 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, 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. For the records, Altarplate has come to stay and the general public can do business with Harrysong and Alterplate management.”
