How Fameye took money from underground act for feature and refused to promote it

Up and coming dancehall artiste Kwesi Orlando has alleged that he paid highlife musician Fameye for a feature, but the singer refused to post the song on his social media pages when it was released.


In 2019, the newcomer released “Ankonam” featuring Fameye, but the singer refused to honour his promises.

Kwesi Orlando disclosed this during an interview on GHOne TV this week.

“Fameye didn’t push the song. He didn’t even post on his Instagram [page]. He left the song like that,” he disclosed.

According to him, Fameye promised to support the promotion of the song through social media but, when the song was released, Fameye ghosted him. He said not a single social media post from the “Praise” singer when their collaboration was released.

“[He] promised me that he would try his best to promote the song when released, but after release, he didn’t post it. He wouldn’t reply to my texts.”

He continued that the collaboration started on a ‘brotherly’ note. However, he made some payments to him prior to the video shoot. He said Fameye insisted on taking money before appearing on the set for the official music video shoot.

“The feature was done on a brotherly level, but when we were about to shoot the [music] video, he took money before partaking,” he concluded.

This is not the first time Fameye has been accused of dishonesty and unprofessionalism. His former record label, OGB Music, had back and forth with him amid social media dragging that lasted months before his exit.
