The beef between former Five Star Music label mates, Kcee and Harrysong is far from over as Kcee has filed a lawsuit at the High Court in Lagos against Harrysong and their former manager, Soso Soberekon who announced his exit from the label last month (June).
It would be recalled that Harrysong who has moved on to form his own music label - Alterplate, was arrested back in February with his new manager, Desmond Ike by Five Star Music on criminal charges involving fraud, forgery and impersonation.
Reacting to the lawsuit, Harrysong, who is currently in Asaba for his show, said in an exclusive interview with LIB, he doesn't know why Kcee keeps frustrating his moves.
"I was in my house before I traveled here and they said Kcee sent court papers to me. I don't know what I have done again. I asked him what have I done again, he did not say anything. I don't know what this is about. I don't know my offence. These guys are just saying they are upset with me. Angry with me? What have I done? I don't know what their problem is? Anytime I want to do something or they see anything that is coming up that is good about me, they come to fight and to pull me down. So I don't know what the problem is. People would talk to me that I should stay humble, don't fight them back. Even when they are oppressing me, I don't say anything. I am just tired. Maybe after these shows, I would now seat with my team to see what to do".
Also reacting to the lawsuit, Harrysong's manager, Desmond Ike said Kcee is jobless and is only trying to stay relevant with the lawsuit because his career is dead.
"From what you can attest to, Kcee has not gotten over dumping him in the thrash. He hasn't. All he does everyday is to talk down on Harrysong, trying to bring his person down all the time. In as much as Harrysong has been that very loyal person who doesn't want trouble, he doesn't want it to seem like he is biting the finger that fed him. Kcee keeps coming at him. So the tone of that writeup on IG is nothing short of it that he would hear from us this time around. They have bitten more than they can chew."
"He (Kcee) granted LIB an interview which is on record where he said Harrysong is now free to do his thing. For crying out loud, what is this nonsense he is trying to do? If you ask me, there is only one explanation to it. Kcee wants to stay relevant because his career is dead and he knows it"
"Now, it is no more only Harrysong. It is now Soso. Everbody needs to ask him what has Harrysong done to you? We have challenged him and we are still challenging him. Let him go and make a hit instead of running around looking for relevance where there is relevance. Let him and make music. Let him trend doing music and not on controversy. It is because he is jobless that is why he is looking for ways to make himself relevant. Because we know that he is jobless, we are going to give him enough work. He should go ahead, we will meet him".
On the charges filed against Harrysong, he said:
"It is about Harrysong and Soso working together against him. That is his claim. That it is a breach of his fundamental human right. That they are trying to do some publication against him, to malign his image. It is a cheap lawsuit. It is lame. There is no depth to it. Those claims are fictitious claims. There is no depth to it. So as far as the Alterplate family is concerned, Kcee has been dumped where he belongs and we are not going to go there to him except he comes to apologize and he must make this apologies in the public For as long as he has decided to toe the line and path of war, war shall he get".
On when the court papers were served, he said:
"It was served last week Friday. We are working on responding to him".
Asked whether the Alterplate team have reached out to him, he said:
"No. He should F**k off. We are not getting across to him. Our lawyers will get across to him. He is an idiot. We are not going to glorify a jobless bunk career. Did he call us before he dropped the lawsuit? We are ready for him. If he drummed the drum of war, then let us go to war".
Asked whether chairman of Five Star music and Kcee's younger brother, E-money might be aware of the suit, he said:
"I don't care if E-money is aware or not aware. For as much as I know, if he is not aware, he is aware now and he should call his brother to order and if he doesn't want to call his brother to order, the same thing awaits the two of them. We don't care anybody who is aware and who is not aware. Nobody is bigger than the law of the land. The fact that he has gone to court which is the hope of the common man, then let us go to court. We are not afraid to go to court. We will meet them in court".
