Wizkid’s refusal to perform ‘Time Bomb’, Samini’s hit song he featured on, at this year’s Ghana Meets Naija concert received several interpretations after the event. There is a back story to it however. One man who knows all about the big snub, has let this website in on what the actual story is.
In an interview with Enewsghana, producer Possi Gee tells us:
“Time Bomb’s beat was done by Killbeat and I recorded the vocals at MOB studios. Wizkid did the song because he thought Mugeez was going to be on the song. So after all the recording was done and Wizkid heard the final work without Mugeez on it, he never wanted us to release it, but it was too late.”
“R2BEES, Samini and Wizkid came to the studio together and it was Mugeez who told Wizkid Samini wanted to do a song with him, but the initial agreement was that all three of them were going to be on the record.” Samini this website understands, went ahead to release the song at a time when it had just his and Wizkid’s verses without Mugeez’s. Wizkid we gather, wasn’t pleased with this, insisting the only reason he agreed to do the song was because he thought it was going to have all three of them on it.
Samini put up a defense, arguing he released the song because he thought it was just fine with his verse and that of Wizkid only. The relationship between Wizkid and Samini as it stands now, is estranged. There could be a way out of this, Posi Gee says, adding that can only happen with R2Bees’ intervention. R2Bees however, have not had a not-so-okay relationship with Samini in the last few months, and may not bother working out an amicable settlement, we understand.
From the look of things, we might never get to see a video for “Time Bomb”.
