Events have taken a real twist lately as twin brothers of the Hippop crew DopeNation have dropped a new diss track titled chairman for Kwesi Arthur. It doesn’t end there. They claim they have even four more diss tracks installed for Kwesi Arthur if he dares replies to their first track chairman.

Speaking in an interview view with celebrity blogger Zion Felix Kwesi Arthur made it clear as water on his stand on the whole dopenation beef Saga. He said:

“I have always been humble in the music industry and I will continue to remain humble, The fact that i am humble doesn’t mean I am weak. No I am focused. Dopenation claim i directed their team. They haven’t told me what exactly I did wrong.
“I will not even bother replying this diss track. I am sure they just want to use me for hype”

No amount of money will lure me back to ‘Black Avenue Music’ – Freda Rhymz

Published

By

After a year of working together, Black Avenue Muzik and rapper Freda Rhymz ended their relationship after both parties agreed not to continue their production and business management agreement which was supposed to last for 5 years.

Born Freda Baffour Awua, Freda Rhymz made history by emerging the winner of the sixth season of the MTN Hitmaker music reality show. She is the first female to win that reality show.

After winning the reality show, Black Avenue Muzik, Charterhouse Ghana and MTN Ghana came into an agreement for the former to assume production and managerial role of the artiste.

Through intense effort, Freda Rhymz released three official singles and music videos between March 2018 and May 2019 under Black Avenue Muzik.

She released ‘Jammin’ (a Hip-hop/Rap song), ‘I Dey Go’ featuring Kelvyn Boy (an Afrobeats song), and ‘Pay’ featuring D-Black (an Afrobeats/Hip-hop song)’.

After leaving Black Avenue Music, Young Mission Entertainment, a Paris-based Ghanaian booking and entertainment company, which has over the years made very major impacts in the lives of most artists in the country officially signed its ever first unique female rapper Freda Rhymz on a 5-year contract with good working conditions.

Speaking to Arnold in an interview, she revealed she left BAM due to the number of artists who were on the label and personal reasons.

When asked whether she will change her mind to join BAM if they come back to her with a juicy deal than the one she’s enjoying now, she was quick to reply that no amount of money will make her change her mind to join Black Avenue Music again.
