Award-winning music producer and singer, Richie Mensah has quashed the seemingly endless brouhaha between himself and rapper Guru.
Nana Ama McBrown’s United Showbiz on UTV has for the past year, become a platform for uniting industry players and unravelling fracas and beefs in the showbiz industry.
That same platform was on Saturday, February 13, used to squash the recent standoff between NKZ Boss Guru and the CEO of Lynx Entertainment, Richie Mensah.
According to Richie, though it has been long perceived by the public that he has bad blood with Guru resulting from the latter’s collaboration with Obrafour the hit song Kasiebo but sincerely, he has never had a problem with Guru.
“Until Guru mentioned Kasiebo in an interview, I had forgotten about Kasiebo. I don’t have it in mind at all.” He told Nana Ama Mcbrown.
He was responding to the banter his camp has engaged in with the “Lapaz Toyota” hitmaker that has dominated on various internet platforms for the past week.
On why he declined Guru a collaboration with his signees, Kwame Eugene and Kidi, Richie indicated that the timing was wrong.
“You know artists call every day for a feature, but sometimes you say yes, sometimes you say no.
He expressed displeasure over Guru’s remarks about him and asserted that Guru should have contacted him or come to his studio if he had any issue with him, rather than painting his reputation negatively in interviews and on social media.
“I was there when someone called me to say Guru said I’ve been sabotaging his career, I’m a wicked person, what did I do to warrant this kind of comments from you”, he questioned Guru who was also present on the show.
After an insistence from Nana Ama McBrown for the two to smoke the peace pipe, Richie stated that his doors will always be opened for Guru.
