[Sharingbuttons]Dancehall artiste Khago has unleashed a verbal onslaught on producer Seanizzle over what he described as a ‘lack of earnings’ for songs he voiced for him.
Khago said back then he did not understand the business of the music and as a result, he was used by producers. He is also encouraging upcoming artistes to learn how to produce their own music.
“A di younger youth dem me a bawl fah. A dem me a cry fah, and me wah dem know say me sacrifice my career so dem can learn certain things bout the industry. Me just wah the youth dem know say unuh nah fi voice fi no producer again enuh. Buy one computer and produce unuh music unuh self,” Khago said.
“And if somebody ago produce unuh song dem, unuh sign contract and make sure everything deh pan paper so dem know say when dem sell di songs to big companies like VP, unuh want unuh 50 per cent.” he adds.
“Mi nuh get dollar from my songs dem, and me have some a di biggest songs inna dancehall up to dis day,” he said. “When Nah Sell Out blow up big, a Seanizzle see the bulk a di money from dat song. Me get credited as the writer and so me collect money from JACAP when it play pan di radio, but dem boy deh (referring to Seanizzle) sell me song to VP Records and to all kind a people. Yuh wouldn’t wah know the millions weh Seanizzle make off a Nah Sell Out Mi Fren Dem, and me never get dollar. A nuh Seanizzle alone, but a him produce some a me biggest songs.” Khago told the Star.
