“If not for the grace of God, with the help of some very good men, I would’ve died in the hands of my former label,” he said.
“The torment, attacks, abuses and operations back to back, just because I’ve served and wanted to move out and grow a little for myself. It was hell for me.
“The general public believed everything they said about me then. Fans, supporters, show promoters bullying me everywhere. In fact one of my friends said he will buy drinks, celebrate, if I die of hunger and depression.
“I’m alive today just for the few that stood by me, cus they know the true story and refused to be influenced by lies just to kill an innocent man.
“Record labels should stop this do-or-die thing, killing and destroying young talents just because they want to prove label power and supremacy.”
Harrysong’s revelations come in the wake of the tragic death of another Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, who passed away at the age of 27 on September 12, 2023.
