Stonebwoy vandalised my studio – Beatz Dakay

Published

on

Ghana's showbiz was hit with news of an end of a working relationship between Dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy and his resident producer, Beatz Dakay on a very unfriendly terms.

A publication by Flex Newspaper said the two parted ways over unsettled financial disputes.

“Beatz Dakay had earlier demanded for a percentage sharing of all gigs Stonebwoy will play because he does not charge him for the production. He demanded for 20% but Stonebwoy was only ready to give 5%. Again Stonebwoy has now set up his own studio in his house and instead of using his known producer Beatz Dakay for his works, he is rather using a young producer who goes by the name and was trained by Beatz Dakay,” portions of the publication read.

Two days after Stonebwoy addressed issues of a rift, Beatz Dakay in a lengthy post, has given his account of the matter, alleging that Stonebwoy once vandalised his studio after talks between them went bad.
Read his unedited account as posted on his Facebook wall below:
“Honesty is the best policy.
It's quite unfortunate I have to put this out at this time because it's so appalling seeing fabricated stories about Stonebwoy and I circulating and painting the wrong picture of me in the process.
The fact is for the past years ,I have sacrificed a lot to produce,record,direct,mix and master songs for Stonebwoy without taking a penny until he became relevant in the music scene and hence arrangement was made to pay me 5%,not only for my exclusive productions but also as a backup artiste.
It was reported in flex news paper that I demanded for 20% of earnings and also I am frustrated because I am broke and my family is having a hard time which are all false.
I only started getting 5% of the earnings when Management of Burniton Music Group sat down to apportion that to me as my share of profits from my work for Stonebwoy and Burniton Music Group. And even with that I never knew the round figure we make, to calculate my 5% to know if I'm getting exactly what they think i deserve.
It is true i raised concerns in adjustment of my 5% after about three (3) years of my services but never mentioned 20%.
We discussed this together and Stonebwoy resorted to see his lawyer to bring in contract which was a great idea, but terms and conditions in the contract were not favourable and also due to the hasty nature of the process i didn't sign.
I knew I had not signed any contract yet,so i expected the previous agreement to still hold till we sign a new contract but was dismayed by Stonebwoy going ahead to put the terms in the contract to work. I went to his residence to discuss with him the turn of events and as a result of his utterances I knew it didn't go down well with him. He later came to my studio with Blakk Cedi,who is his manager now, to have a meeting with me to discuss the issues at hand but that meeting ended with Stonebwoy vandalizing my studio where most of his works were recorded.
They came back after the damage to have another meeting with me with the aim of resolving issues and to apologize for his act.We came into new terms and by his words,I understood i can't talk to him anymore over anything relating to work because there is Blakk Cedi who is his official manager to talk to.
I want fans who are speculating about my travels to know that I paid for all my travel expenses,being it visa fees and plane tickets whenever i travel outside to work with/for Stonebwoy if the host could not afford my ticket.
As walls have ears I think the reporter who wrote the story making rounds in the media did not get his/her facts accurate.
Truth is,I mixed and mastered “Enku Lenu” for a fee which was never the case before and it was produced by who has been my trainee/protege and still is,but I have allowed him to help Stonebwoy with his works in his newly built studio.
I have been sober on this,but lies can't be hidden from the public's eye, and the ugly misconceptions people have needs to be trashed.
I worked with Stonebwoy and the team for years and do not regret it. It has been a great learning process and I am much grateful to God for how far we have come.
I want Ghanaians and the rest of the world to know that my studio from its inception has been open for commercial use,and I am still very much open to work with any artiste who is ready to work with me.
Hence,my Record Label “TooEasy” which has been in existence before my BMG affiliation has been and is still dedicated to grooming artistes and music producers.
I therefore wish Burniton Music Group the best of luck in all their endeavors.”

Sing-A-Thon: Gunness World Records disqualifies Afua Asantewaa despite paying Ghc 9,286

Published

on

Afua Asantewaa's Medical team Finally explains why she ended sing-a-thon

confirmed on February 1, 2023, that she had paid the Guinness World Record $750, or GHC 9,286 for a priority review.

revealed in an exclusive interview with Joy News that she and her team paid for the priority review after waiting weeks for an official statement regarding her longest singing marathon attempt by an individual from Guinness World Records.

Afua claims that although the priority review costs $650, there are additional unstated fees. As a result, she ended up paying $750 in total.

Citing from the official website of Guinness World Records, if an applicant chooses the Priority Application service, Guinness World Records will respond to him or her within 5 working days (as opposed to the usual 12 weeks).

Today is 22nd February (Roughly 21 days after the payment of the priority review) and we still haven't received any update from Afua Asantewaa's team concerning the current status of her sing-a-thon attempt.

Has she been informed of her unfortunate disqualification and has she been keeping it hidden from the public eye, which is highly suspicious given that if this had been the case, the news of her victory would have made the news!

We'll have to wait and see, but we're still hoping for the best.
