Ghanaian highlife musician, Kay Wusu has revealed on GH Entertainment on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that although he granted permission to Rufftown Records to remark his song’ Asore’ he did not charge him.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with host Togo Borga, the musician said the CEO of the record label, Bullet called some years ago and asked that he allow him to remake the song.
According to him, Bullet at the time wanted Ebony to remake the along but unfortunately, she died and “so I thought he had no intention to remake the song again.”
However, I received a call from Bullet again asking that I allow him to remake the song with Wendy Shay. We met and I asked him to remake them along but I did not take a penny from him for allowing him to remake my song.”
When pushed by the host he then disclosed he received a token from Bullet but originally, he did not charge him for allowing his label to remake his popular song.
Kay Wusu said the original ‘Asore’ song was released in 2013 but television stations failed to promote the song because they saw it as a song that promoted promiscuity and profanity.
But Kay Wusu said the along was meant to change people.
Wendy Shay of RuffTown records was chastised heavily for contributing to the moral degeneration among the youths in the country after she released her controversial song ‘Masakra’.
The song that had a Gospel flavour christened “Masakra” to wit, “I’m a changed soul” featuring Ray James, expressed the musician’s desire to change.
Per the lyrical composition of the song in question, Wendy Shay lamented that she’s always blamed for the deviant attitude of the Ghanaian child for obvious reasons. Therefore, it’s high time she considered living a life worthy of emulation so that she can be seen as a role model.
Kay Wusu said he experienced the same backlash when he released the original song.
The ‘Afro-Centric’ Highlife Musician is known for songs likes ”Oyerepa, Asore, Meko Te Asore among others.
Kay Wusu is ready for a massive work in 2019 which according to him, he has other good songs which will be a prelude to his upcoming album scheduled for release later in the year.
