Nigerian singer Dammy Krane recently expressed frustration over feeling underappreciated by artist Mr Eazi, whom he signed to his record label about 10 years ago.
In a tweet, Dammy Krane sent a message to Mr Eazi saying “If you don’t give me my flower, I’ll pluck it.” He went on to tell fans it’s time to put some respect on his name.
Dammy Krane signed Mr Eazi back in 2012, providing early support that helped launch Eazi’s career as he rose to fame.
But despite their history, Dammy Krane implied Eazi has not shown proper gratitude for the pivotal role he played in boosting the now-global star.
The tense social media exchange provided a glimpse into relationship dynamics between artists and the labels that help cultivate them. Egos and credits often complicate partnerships.
However, Dammy Krane’s public call-out of his former protégé surprised fans considering Eazi’s brand is built around promoting African music as a whole.
