Fameye Allegedly Defrauds A Foreign Group
Takoradi-based music producer Body Beatz has alleged that Ghanaian music star and reigning VGMA22 Songwriter of the year Fameye has defrauded Ghanaian/Ivorian music group, Climbie Afrika.
According to Body Beatz, who produced Fameye’s ‘Long Life’ ft Kwesi Arthur, Climbie Afrika contacted Fameye to feature for a song through him.
The award-winning musician charged the music group GH¢3,500, which the group paid. The audio was done.
Fast forward, to May 2021, Climbie Afrika contacted Fameye again through Body Beatz to get the video for the song shot. He charged GH¢5,000 and both parties agreed on GH¢4,500.
The music duo paid the agreed amount but after almost a year and a half, Fameye is yet to show up for the video shoot.
In an interview with Ato Kwamina Otoo D’Gem on Takoradi-based Connect FM, Body Beatz explained that Fameye has on several occasions failed to honour appointments for the shoot, even though he agrees to be present.
He further explained that in October 2021 he had to do all he could to avert plans by Climbie Afrika to cause the arrest of Fameye in Takoradi when he arrived to perform at the Guinness Bright House Experience concert.
The reigning Producer of the Year of Western Music Awards 2022 added that Climbie Afrika subsequently caused his arrest, as they believe he may not have paid the monies to Fameye, causing the undue delay.
The frustrated music producer stated that the duo they are no more interested in shooting the video for the song, and will only appreciate it if Fameye would refund the monies he took from them.
