Ghanaian dancehall artist Epixode has sent a warning to a Black Avenue Musik record label signee.
In an interview with Foster Romanus on e.TV Ghana’s entertainment talk show, The Late Nite Celebrity Show, a concerned fan texted in about another musician using Epixode’s slogan ‘Pruuuuuuu’ in his songs.
Reacting to this, Epixode told the host that he was aware of it and has taken measures by approaching the record label to advice their artiste in this regard.
“I’ve heard it, one particular artiste and people call me and they ask me, oh! Are you on this song, and I go like ‘no’. I don’t want to mention the artist’s name, but he is from Black Avenue Musik. This is somebody who I believe knows me, and he knows that I made slogan popular,” he said.
He then threw a warning to the artiste whose name he refused to mention to desist from using his slogan and then to the record label for not adhering to his amicable request.
He said, “Straight warning to you, straight warning, whoever you are, wey you dey use my slogan. I’ve reached out to them that, like brothers, because I don’t want it to look like it’s only dancehall artistes who always want to bring beef. I’ve been quiet about it, but if the fans have even seen it then you should know that it’s serious.”
“Them for no make the dragon wake up, that be the only thing I go talk,” he added looking straight into the camera as if he had them right in front of him.
Epixode is also a Painter and a Graphic artist. He has hit songs like ‘Jehovah’, ‘Kutu’, ‘Dear Mama’ which features his mother who is also a musician among others.
