KHAGO'S MANAGEMENT NOT IN SUPPORT WITH HIS RECENT SINGLE
The management of artiste Khago say they are completely against his recent recording of a song that is alleged to be a counteraction for a song previously recorded by I-Octane.
In a release sent to THE WEEKEND STAR yesterday, the artiste's manager, Bankey, said that his organisation, Bankylous Production, was not in support of any lyrical confrontation with any other artiste.
"We ah try to put out wholesome and cultural messages. Even if the songs are fun, it must not be seen as an attack on another artiste as we are not into lyrical warfare. We really hope that I-Octane does not take it personal," Banky stated in the release.
He further stated that the song, Blood A Boil, which surfaced on the Internet on Sunday, was recorded without the management team giving the necessary go-ahead. He said that such songs are not in accordance with the policies of Bankylous Productions.
In the song, which was released recently on TJ Records' Bottle Party rhythm, Khago deejays, Nuh bwoy cyaan hug mi up afta mi nuh catty/Nuh bwoy cyaan bad mi up mongrel nor ratty/ Mi sure seh woman alone wash dem hair and flash it/ Mi nuh sissy man no mi
nuh act cocky.
The song is said to be a direct counteraction of I-Octane's song Nuh Ramp Wid Wi done on Cashflow Production's Bus Stop rhythm. In that song I-Octane had deejayed; "Nuh bwoy pon Earth can put dem hand inna mi natty/Nuh bwoy caan draw mi locks when mi wash it and a flash it."
In a story published in THE WEEKEND STAR on Tuesday, Khago had dismissed the talks of a controversy between him and Octane as mere rumours. I-Octane's manager, Ray Alexander, had also said that he was not sure if the song was directly aimed at his artiste.
Now that the song has already been released, Banky yesterday said that his team will be making amends as he believes that both artistes should be looking to unite rather than to have any form of lyrical confrontation.
Efforts by THE WEEKEND STAR to talk to Khago yesterday were unsuccessful.
