February 2019 witnessed an upheaval in one of the biggest gospel record labels in the country, EMB records.
David Wonder comes clean; agrees they owe Bahati money (Details)
Bahati claimed that Mr Seed and Wonder owed him more than Sh6 million.
It saw talents like David Wonder and Mr Seed leave in a huff and in their wake tainted Bahati’s reputation as there were accusations of Bahati mistreating and refusing to pay some of his artistes like Mr Seed.
It later emerged that EMB’s first signee Weezdom had also left the label after he was allegedly forced out by Diana Marua. As if that wasn’t enough, we came to learn that EMB’s first female signee Rebecca Soki had also left the record label in a disgruntled state due to some misunderstandings at EMB.
For a while, Bahati maintained radio silence until recently when he revealed that he had uplifted ‘ungrateful’ people and some of his artistes owe him money amounting to Sh6 million that had been injected into various projects.
Mr Seed denied these allegations and accused Bahati of lying.
“I have achieved so much in 3months I give God all the glory…But my brother. I love you and because of the love I have for you I forgave you for everything you did to me and my family … but I wonder why you should go n lie live on national TV?? Anyways GOD BLESS YOU FOR EVERYTHING NO HARD FEELINGS THOUGH,” Mr Seed posted on his Instagram Page.
David Wonder Responds
At first, David Wonder denied it too but later came clean on his debt in an interview with Pulse Magazine.
“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.
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 till they recovered the amount invested.”
