Sailor’s new hit with Majirani ‘Chepukati’ has been pulled down on Youtube.
The song was trending at number 12 with more than 100,000 views on YouTube.
Speaking exclusively to Classic 105, Majirani, says he has no idea what happened, as he had already paid for the collabo.
“Manze it’s crazy ’cause we did not approach Sailors directly. So we have a contract with K-letta and Mwalimu Rachel and we paid them a lot of money. All of that is because we wanted them to appear on the song,” he said.
Majirani says K-letta told him that Black Market Records (BMR) which the group is under, was just supposed to distribute Sailors music and nothing more.
But a few days later they received a text saying they worked with their artists without BMR’s consent.
“In short it is an in-house conflict and there is something they are not telling us.” Majirani said.
According to Black Market Records manager, Mr. Dankez, he says that they were not notified about it by Mwalimu Rachel, K-Letta and Majirani.
“After that we told them to just have credit of Black Market Records on Youtube and make sure the song has BMR logo on it.
So we actually warned them even before uploading the song that if they are gonna upload the song without our logo we’ll just take down the song,” Said Dankez.
He says they went ahead and uploaded the song without doing any of that and they were forced to act accordingly.
The song won’t be back up on Youtube until the group does as per they were instructed.
This was a comeback song for Majirani after being away for a while and almost falling into depression.
