Management of Kumawood actor cum musician, Kwadwo Nkansah aka Lil Win
says Ghanaians have not been fair to him over the controversy
surrounding his latest single, Corner Corner.
Abdul Zach Amissah, who speaks for Lil Win, says Ghanaians have
pronounced judgment on the Ladder hitmaker without even hearing his side
of the matter.Lil Win has since last week received constant bashing on
social media following accusations by Agona Swedru based artiste,
Patapaa, that he was trying to take his shine.
Patapaa’s single, One Corner and its accompanying video is currently getting a lot of buzz everywhere.
However, Abdul says, “It’s very disheartening to hear people lambast
you for something you aren’t guilty of. Lil Win’s objective was to give a
young artiste the platform to grow his brand but unfortunately, his
good intent has been misinterpreted.” The saga began last week when
Patapaa accused Lil Win of undermining him. According to him, Lil Win
and his manager approached him for a collaboration after his song came
out. However, the terms the actor’s camp proposed were not favorable to
his management so they turned down the offer.
Patapaa claimed Lil Win threatened to release a similar song which
would bring down his One Corner. “Lil Win called me and was angry I did
not follow the orders of his manager who had asked me to send a demo of
the song to their sound engineer. I was really surprised when his
manager called again saying Lil Win recorded the song before me. I was
wondering how that could happen when One Corner was all over the place,”
However, Amissah tells Showbiz a different story. According to him,
they were rather approached by one Nana Yaw to help his artiste who
happens to be Patapaa when they went to Adom FM to promote Lil Win’s
song.Patapaa later contacted him (Amissah). Their aim at the time was to
do a collaboration on One Corner remix.
However, one of Patapaa’s managers called Godfred said that was not
possible since he had been nominated for an awards scheme in the Central
Region and joint ownership of the song could deny him a chance to win
He rather suggested a remix on which Lil Win will feature but that
was also rejected.Since they couldn’t come to any conclusion, both sides
agreed to discuss the issues with their respective teams.
“Before we could conclude on the matter, Patapaa ran to the media to
accuse Lil Win of using his popularity to steal his song. This is where I
think Ghanaians have been unfair to Lil Win. They were quick to condemn
him without knowing the details. Who can steal a song that is already
in the public domain? It’s unfortunate things turned out this way but
it’s a great lesson,” he added.
