Nigerian singer Mr Eazi has revealed an alleged incident involving comedian I Go Dye, claiming that the comedian failed to honor a commitment to perform at a concert in Ghana after being paid for the event.
During a recent episode of the Afrobeats Intelligence podcast, Mr Eazi recounted the incident that took place while he was studying at the Kwame Nkrumah University.
According to the singer, who hosted an award show at the university due to his popularity on campus, I Go Dye was one of the entertainers invited to perform at the event.
“I did not stop at parties. Now we are doing parties; we need to do an award show. I had the first social award of my university, Swagatainment Award. That was when I booked Sarkodie, R2Beees, and Wande Coal. Wande Coal did not show up at the show. He was in town but did not show up… I did not know he did not receive his full money,” Mr Eazi stated.
“I was like begging Sarkodie. It was like $2,500 or less. Please, even though I have not paid you in full, come on stage. He came on stage. Like he saved me by coming on stage. That is why he is more than a friend. He is my brother. I had Sarkodie, R2Bees. I Go Dye ran away with my money. I Go Dye if you are hearing this now. You took money from Kwame Nkrumah University students and never showed up.
“I remember texting him that you never pay me my money. I hope the next time I see him and say ‘bro, you still need to pay me my money’… it is no beef. It is somewhere at the back of my mind.”
