5.David Wonder comes clean; agrees they owe Bahati money
After weeks of denying that he and Mr Seed owe Bahati money, David wonder finally came clean and admitted that they owe the ‘Mama’ singer some money.
“An investment was made. However, I am not sure of the figure because when working we didn’t really put everything we did on paper. It’s true we owe him. I can’t agree or disagree with the figure but we owe him some money,” Wonder admitted to SDE.
The ‘Washangaze’ singer revealed that there was a payment plan in place that would ensure Bahati got his money back.
“All the songs we did while at EMB are registered under the label so the revenue that comes from the songs goes directly to them. According to the contract, the label was to own all the rights to the songs until they recovered the amount invested,” he said.
