Singer Harrysong has revealed that there is a feud between Kizz Daniel and Reekado Banks while explaining why he released another record of song “Selense”.
Harrysong who released the original song titled “Selense” featuring Kizz Daniel and Reekado Banks said he did another version with Iyanya and Dice Ailes because Daniel refused to work with Reekado Banks.
Speaking through his manager, Desmond Ike, the singer told Punch that, contrary to reports that he was upset with Kizz Daniel because he claimed he was the biggest artiste in Nigeria, Harry said he is only upset because Daniel refused to work with Reekado.
He 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.”
Ike maintained that the “Selense” singer was unaware of the feud between the artistes.
“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,” he added.
The Alterplate record boss further clarified that Daniel was not aware that Reekado Banks was also featured on the record.
He explained, “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 to choice but to look for a way out.”
On the rating and performance of the song, Ike said the success has shown that no one should think highly of himself.
“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.
