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.
Hivo ndo Kunaendaga star Majirani has been on the low for a while but he finally spoke up about his life in Prison and what he went through in an interview with Classic 105.
Speaking about it he says
It wasn’t a good experience and I would not wish prison on anyone. Even lice in prison is considered government and you are not supposed to even touch it.
Prison teaches you many things for instance, you need to respect people.
It also hardened me, making me realize that people are suffering while locked up there. So when you get that freedom it is more priceless than money and everything else
When asked about the hardest time he had in prison he was hesitant before narrating how he was almost sodomized.
I was attacked while still in prison by a group of homos3xuals and it was the hardest thing I had to go through while in there.
However I thank God that it did not happen.
However I had to fight them and that led to an extension of my time in prison for I could not afford the cash bond that had been set of about sh. 200,000.
Majirani is known for his famous collaboration song with Kenrazy named “Hivo ndo kunaendaga” but fell out with record label leading to a break in his music career for 3 years until 2019.
Meanwhile during that break he was able to give back to the community by opening a football club that ensures growth of talent from the youth.
I came up with the idea of starting a football club to help curb tribalism in our area which is in Eldoret.
We brought young people to play football every evening to play and as they went home tired, they wouldn’t fall into vices including stealing and also to being union among the people to curb tribalism.
