Iwan’s reaction is coming after Samini released a very controversial song, Pink Sheet earlier this week. The song takes some artistes in the Ghanaian music industry to the cleaners and calls them fake artistes.
Although Iwan’s name was not mentioned in the song, the artiste says he feels Samini has no right to call others fake artistes considering the sour taste he has left in the mouth of most musicians who have come into contact with him.
Speaking in an interview with Myjoyonline.com, Iwan, also known as the Lyrical Gunshot said “if Samini should prove himself a dancehall artiste then I think he is the biggest fake in that industry.”
Samini “sabotaged my performance during his Movado concert in 2011,” the Thanks & Praise hit singer claimed.
He said listening to “a Samini song saying others are fakers,” only made him laugh because “he is the biggest faker the industry has seen.”
“Since day one he has sabotaged artistes, people know about his dubious ways…that guy I personally have experiences with him so when I say he is the biggest fake, he knows it and he knows that it’s true,” Iwan said.
According to him, Samini should not call himself a dancehall artiste because “he wasn’t in it when we were trying to set this thing up, he has been in the hiplife world.”
He advised Samini, born Emmanuel Samini, that “if he is trying to prove [that he] is a dancehall king, he should come with a good style but not to come and say some people are fakers.”
Touching on Samini’s boast that he has nurtured some artistes, Iwan quizzed that “which artistes has he brought?” and added that, “Stonebwoy was under him what did he do for Stonebwoy or has Samini helped me before?”
Reminded about Kaakie, who was discovered by Samini, Iwan quickly rebutted “Who is Kaakie?” “I respect Kaakie but Kaakie still needs some steps to build up her dancehall brand very well. Kaakie is not that real artiste.”
