On Saturday, November 19, 2016, Reggae Blues crooner Harrysong announced dumping his former music label, Five Star music label to start his own label.
Barely 24 hours after announcing the birth of his music company Alterplate to the public, Harrysong cried out over the hack of his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
According to a statement by a prominent member of his team, Desmond Ike Chima, “Harrysong’s social media accounts have been hacked by some losers who are probably enraged and yet to come to terms with the latest development”.
When NGTrends spoke to Harrysong on the matter, he said efforts are being made by his team to recover the hacked accounts. He said: “We are confident that the accounts will be restored in no distant time. As for the hackers, I have this shocker, we know who you are and we are coming after you”.
He also assured that Alter Plate has come to stay, in spite of the rumours peddled around. “Alter Plate is a total music company that neither birthed prematurely nor by chance. It was properly planned and put together by a group of seasoned and dedicated professionals. On the other hand, we put God first in the whole of this movement and at the same time adore talent over money”.
One of his close associates, Desmond Ike Chima said of his dumping Five Star Music and his contract with the label, He said: “Harrysong’s exit from Five Star may have stirred a massive controversy since Saturday when he publicly announced it on Channels Television programme, but that doesn’t give credence to the rumour making the rounds and that’s all I can say for now”.
Meanwhile, Harrysong has dropped the first single from his label on Monday, November 21 titled Bacana in which he featured Nollywood actor Mike Ezuruonye, Huddah Munroe.
As at the time of writing this report, the accounts have become active again.
