Five Star Record Label star singer, Kingsley Chinweike Okonkwo, popularly known as Kcee, has been chided for boasting during an interview on how he picked his record label mate, Harrysong and MMMG’s boss and singer,Iyanya inside bars to make them who they are today.
They queried him for reminding the singers and their fans that he was behind their grass to grace stories on a platform that might unsettle them, their families and loved ones.
Celeb Police conducted a vox pop to hear the view of some of the fans of the singers and captured them here;
Bamidele Yemi: he has done well for bringing them thus far but, it does him no good for reminding them of their past. That is why it is said when human beings assisted your growing up; they would make a story out of you for self glorification.
Femi Japhet: He can only say that because they are doing well today because I’m sure these are not the only persons he has assisted in life. But, because they are doing well, that is why he’s claiming the glory. He should look somewhere else for his inspirational story or whatever he might be trying to achieve.
Lilian Ogbuake: Maybe he is trying to bring up another song that involves these artistes because; those are some of the ways they explore to hype their songs.
Joseph Daniels: Kcee has done well for bring up those two guys from pub to where they are today. It would be nice if we can have people like that all around the country but, it is always good to be a silent philanthropist.
Mercy Adebayo: Who does his story epp? Let him look for other struggling artistes and bring them up. Stop dwelling on your past glories; bring others up and we shall celebrate you.
Kcee had during a chat with Naija FM, a Radio Station in Lagos, said he met Harrysong in a bar in Lagos and Iyanya in another in Calabar; “I met him at a beer parlour. It was atOjez in Surulere, I went there to chill with my brother E-money. So, a guy came on stage, took off his shirt and dazzled, we were impressed, sprayed him money and gave him my card to call me when we were leaving”.
“By the time Harrysong came to the house, I had already brought Iyanya from Calabar because I also discovered Iyanya at a bar signing too, so I moved him to Lagos after speaking with his mum.
We registered Iyanya for the MTN project fame then he went for auditions in Calabar and he was picked.
I paid for Iyanya’s first ever flight to Lagos, it was a virgin Nigeria flight, I remembered“.
