Renowned artist Oluwatosin Ajibade, better known by his stage as Mr Eazi, has accused comedian I Go Dye of reportedly embezzling money from him.
In an interview with the Afrobeats Intelligence podcast, Mr. Eazi detailed how, despite being paid to play, the comedian did not show up for a concert he arranged in Ghana.
“I had the first social award of my university, Swagatainment Award. That was when I booked R2Beees, Wande Coal and Sarkodie. Wande Coal was in town but didn’t show up at the event. I did not know he didn’t receive his full money.
“I was like begging Sarkodie. It was about $2,500. Please, come on stage even though I have not paid you in full. And he saved me by coming on stage. That is why he is more than a friend. He is my brother. I had Sarkodie, R2Bees. I Go Dye ran away with my money.
“I remember texting him that ‘you never pay me my money.’ I hope the next time I see him, I will tell him bro, you still need to pay me my money. it is not a beef. It is somewhere in the back of my mind.”
