Nairobi - We might just be witnessing something similar to the Wizkid-Saeon beef but interestingly, this might even come with a continental angle.
This is following recent allegations levelled against MMMG lead act and former Project Fame winner, Iyanya by a Kenyan pop star, Charles Njagua Kanyi otherwise known as Jaguar.
The Kenyan act threw shades at Iyanya while giving a speech shortly after winning an award at the Bingwa Music Awards in Kenya recently.
According to the Kenyan act, Iyanya gave him 'a lot of attitude and stress' while they were working on the video of the song in which he featured the Nigerian act titled 'One Centimetre' remix.
In a video of proceedings, Jaguar, who spoke mostly in Swahili, said some of the demands Iyanya made in order for him to feature in the video include that: 'The video shoot had to happen either in England or Nigeria and the video had to be shot either by Clarence Peters or Moe Musa.'
He went on to add: 'Iyanya refused to help market the song in Nigeria, saying Nigerian TV stations would never play a Kenyan song.'
Jaguar expressed fear and displeasure that Nigerian music acts are taking over the African music scene and he urged Kenyans to support music from Kenya in other to ward off the invasion of Nigerian artistes.
The video for the song was eventually shot by Jaguar's Kenyan production team, Main Switch....
