Singer, Harrysong, has finally cleared the air on why he recorded another version of his song, Selense, with Iyanya and Dice Ailes; after releasing the first version on which he featured Kizz Daniel and Reekado Banks.
It came as a shock that the singer stopped the promotion of the original version of the song. It was generally believed that the singer took offence with Kizz Daniel’s verse on the song, claiming to be the biggest artiste in the country.
Harrysong has however come out to correct that thought. The singer said he didn’t take offence with Kizz Daniel’s claim. The Reggae Blues singer said he was upset because Kizz Daniel refused to work on any song with Reekado Banks.
Speaking through his manager, Desmond Ike, Harrysong said, “It wasn’t about what Kizz Daniel said on the song; there is nothing out of place about it. When you do something with people and they don’t make it easy for you, you have to look for a way to sort yourself out. Harrysong originally did the song with Reekado Banks and Kizz Daniel but at a point, Daniel said he didn’t want to star in the video because Reekado would be in it. He said he didn’t want to have anything to do with Reekado. We tried to sort out the issue between both of them so that we could shoot the video but Daniel refused vehemently; he didn’t want any reconciliation. Because of that, we decided to do another version of the song with Iyanya and Dice Ailes. Kizz Daniel was just being arrogant about the whole thing and behaving like he is a demigod.”
Maintaining that Harrysong’s camp was unaware of the source of the bad blood between Reekado and Kizz, Desmond stated, “We don’t really know the issue between them but it must be a long-standing feud. He said he didn’t want to be on any song that Reekado was featured on. He refused all our entreaties.”
On whether Kizz Daniel wasn’t aware that Reekado Banks was featured on the song when he recorded his verse, Ike said, “They recorded their verses separately. The moment he realised that Banks was on the song was when he started saying he didn’t want to be a part of it anymore. We initially thought it was something we could resolve amicably as friends in the industry but Daniel insisted that he didn’t want to be part of it. He frustrated every move to reconcile them. Kizz Daniel even made the song to be pulled from iTunes, claiming that he did not give his consent for his voice to be used; that was how far he went. We had no choice but to look for a way out.”
Ike said the performance of the song had shown that no one should think too highly of himself or herself. “Right now, the song is doing very well on the charts. That shows that no one is indispensable. Everybody likes the new version. We have done all we were supposed to do and we have moved on. We cannot beg Daniel because Harrysong is bigger than all that,” he added.

“DEAR EFCC NIGERIA! My name is Mike Godson I’m an actor with the Nollywood industry.
I’m writing this open letter with tears in my eyes. Few days ago, It was brought to my notice by the chairman of the Actors Guild, in the person of EMEKA ROLLAS. That a woman in America was defrauded by an internet fraudster who pretends to be me. He advised I quickly make an entry at any police station close to me. But the truth is, I have been to all the police station in the past 2 to 3 years, reporting these internet fraudsters tarnishing my image not just as an actor but a responsible Nigerian.
Some weeks ago, one of them made a Photoshopped nude picture of a white man’s body with my image on it. They have stopped at nothing to convince my fans they are speaking to me. They follow me on Instagram watching my every move, lifting and reposting my videos and pictures on their fake pages of me. THROUGH the police, I have caught, arrested, and detained some of these boys but they won’t stop.
They have fake pages of me everywhere. FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM TWITTER to name a few. I can no longer cash western union money transfers just because my name has been used a million times to defraud women oversees.
I’m going crazy, Something must be done to stop this madness. PLEASE! PLEASE! And PLEASE! come to my aid. This is my only verified Instagram account other accounts with my name and image are fake! I humbly await your response thanks and God bless.”

By taking that plea, Gaulden was able to avoid jail time as he was given a 10-year suspended sentence, however, he was placed on probation for three years.
Gaulden was instructed to keep himself out of trouble, but in February of this year, the rapper was arrested in Atlanta. According to reports, Gaulden was at a hotel when a woman he was with assaulted a housekeeper. During that time, a video circulated on social media that reportedly showed the rapper threatening someone, also a violation of his probation.
In June, Gaulden was sentenced to serve 90 days in jail, but after being credited with time served, he had roughly a remaining two months. The day of his release has come as he was captured making his way out of the facility before he jumped on Instagram Live where his adoring fans were excited to see his face. Gaulden will now be placed on house arrest for 14 months where he will wear a GPS ankle monitor. During this time he also isn’t allowed to perform.
