Ghanaian rapper, Maradona Yeboah Adjei, better known by his stage name as Guru has given an account of how he has been scorned and hated by some artists and managers in the Ghanaian music industry.
The ‘Kasiebo’ hitmaker made alarming allegations against Richie Mensah, singer-songwriter and CEO of Lynx Entertainment, and his brother Albert Mensah, accusing them of having sabotaged his plan to collaborate with signed artists of the record label.
He accounted that the idea of the ‘collabo’ emerged from his fans, who thought that it is about time he collaborated more with artists in the mainstream, rather than upcoming artists.
The ‘Lapaz Toyota’ hitmaker recounted to host Nana Adwoa Annan on Atinka TV’s ‘Entertainment City’ show that the subversion was a retaliation against him due to the release of Obrafour’s ‘Kasiebo’ track ten years ago that features him, which sparked controversies in the country.
He added that even the artists were ready to collaborate with him, but their managers just would not budge, due to the residual hate from ten years ago.
Guru expressed his hurt by sending out a message to Richie and the management of the record label, saying:
“I want Lynx entertainment to stop that backbiting based on some artists…Riche and Albert, that kind of lifestyle dem dey put up. If you don’t like me as Guru, because you have the backing of Okyeame Quame and Obour…and think that you will use the energy from ten years ago to play a role today and act like you like me when you see me, don’t act like you like me.”
