Olumide Ogunade, also known as ID Cabasa, a popular Nigerian producer, has now opened up about why he fell out with former signee, ice, almost 14 years ago.
Cabasa recently told media personality Chude Jideonwo that he was disappointed by his decision to continue working with the latter’s ex-wifee, Toni Seun Payne.
Payne managed the musicians on Cabasa’s Coded Tunes Record, which also housed her ex-husband and rapper Olamide at the time.
Payne’s behaviour after the couple’s dramatic separation did not sit well with 9ice, who eventually cut relations with the producer.
The producer stated that he retained Payne on his team because of 9ice, and that he did it for him.
“When I started pushing Olamide, you notice I brought Toni Payne, 9ice was angry but, he had no idea why I brought Payne in.
“I brought Payne in because I needed to keep
Payne and Zion close to 9ice.
“I had my networks. Mr. Kupuloyi was my publicist. If I need anyone to move my artists around, I can find someone but I saw Payne and I noticed she wanted a reconciliation.
“I felt if she takes Zion abroad, 9ice may never see his son.”
