Ghanaian highlife singer K.K Fosu has confirmed in an interview that he has sacked his manager, Mel Kwasi Davis of Airtime Records.
The angry musician speaking in an interview about the split accused his former manager of spending his money. Kaakyire Kwame Fosu as he is known in real life further disclosed that Mel was also under performing so he had no reason to work with him again.
According to the D-Style, there were different occasions he had to perform his manager’s role because Mel was not yielding good results for him.
“I’ve sacked my manager. A manager who cannot work for the artiste and has made the musician turn into a manager, then you are not good to be managing an artiste. If you hear anywhere that I’ve sacked my manager then it is true.
I didn’t want the information to come out this way but I’m speaking because of certain things I’ve been hearing. My wife sent me a message when I was in U.S.A that MTN has used my song for caller tune for about two years. I sent the message to my manager to trace it because we can even sue the telco but Mel didn’t say anything about it. Anytime I asked him about it, he always didn’t say anything about it not knowing he had secretly sent the song to the company.
I remember I asked him sometime ago to send the song to companies for caller tune and introduced Obed to him, he never did that but later gave the songs to him for his personal gains. Anytime a cash came out of my song and that of Dada Hafco, he would go for it and would not tell us” angry K.K Fosu said.
Mel Kwasi Davis reacting to the musician’s accusation in an interview he also confirmed that he has not been working with the singer for months now. Giving reasons for their split, the boss of Artime Records mentioned that “I’ve been busy and he also has a couple of works so the timing was not good for us”. Asked if there was a problem before they went their separate ways, he replied “no”.
Reacting to K.K Fosu’s accusation that he spent his caller tune revenue, Mel Kwasi Davis explained that “Zion you’ve known me for a while and I’m sure you have not heard anywhere that I’ve spent anyone’s money. At a point I was working with K.K Fosu, Dada Hafco and Perpetual Didier.
I registered songs of all my artists at Spice Africa under my management company, Airtime Records.
You can call Dada Hafco and ask him because even as at now, his caller tune money comes to my company and I deliver it to him. I registered all those songs because they were artists I was managing at that time so if you go to the company to inquire about it because they are your songs, they will not show you your data because the songs were registered under my management.
It is absurd for K.K Fosu to accuse me of spending his money because they didn’t give him the money when he did not register the song.”
