When it comes to producing hit tracks, sound engineers are the people who should be given much recognition, cause the sound of the beat is what makes the song a masterpiece. Our Northern Entertainment industry is blessed with talented and creative sound engineers who work tirelessly to make sure their client(musicians) produce quality and the hit tracks.
Stone B, as he is popularly known in the showbiz, finally came out to clear the fallacy that He used a beat produced by AZKONA to produce the Fancy Gadam X Medikal Track dubbed KISS ME. This story came into the limelight when a sister blog, nashiddi.com published a post talking about “How Fancy Gadam Used a stolen beat on his new tune”.
The story has been circulating around with people condemning Stone B for using a stolen beat, as a credible blog, our team contacted Stone B to hear his side of the story as we believe hearing from both sides will help people in deciding who is at fault.
Stone B could not hide his disdain and displeasure about this move to mar and undermine his credibility according to him. Stone B in an interview with our team explained how the whole thing happened. According to him, Fancy Gadam (VGMA’s New Artist of the Year) came to him with the MP3 and explained to him how dissatisfied he was with the way the beat was done, so he needed him to change the whole thing and make it the best. One would ask, why didn’t they record a new voicing of the track, but the issue was that, Madikal had done his part, when they did the initial recording and so it was difficult to get him to fly up here and do his part again, so the 5 minutes crew decided give the original recording to Stone B to use the voicing but change the beat, according to Jamal Bamba.
According to Stone B, he is blaming 5 Minutes entertainment for not doing enough to defend him and let people know that he didn’t steal any beat.According to him when the cover art for the song was published on social media and he observed that his name wasn’t kept there as the producer of the song but rather Azkona but his Jingle is on the song, he contacted the 5 Minutes crew and drew their attention to this anomaly but nothing was done about it, this is what makes him feel betrayed by the 5 Minutes Crew. He also expressed his disappointment in the entertainment blog, nashiddi.com for not contacting him to hear his side of the story but rather depended on what the other sound engineer told them. According to him, the sound engineer told them lies, he had never heard the beat sometime back at Ojah Studio’s and besides his beat and Azkona’s beat are totally different.
As a credible blog, our team contacted Jamal Bamba to hear from him, as Stone B indicated he spoke with Jamal Bamba concerning this whole Brouhaha , and he confirmed that what Stone B said is what really transpired, attempts to contact Azkona Beatz proved futile.
