Ghanaian music producer, JMJ has apologized to Wiyaala over his comment that has sparked controversies.
Wiyaala, in a recent video, warned Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, JMJ and others to stop mentioning her name in their discussions.
Her comments came after the music producer gave her a shout out in an interview for her contributions.
“During the time of Kaakie, I am sure you guys saw how active she was with her A-game and changing the scene so quickly. Same was MzVee and Ebony (of blessed memory) when they hopped on too – these 3 females directed all the traffic to their corner and gave us hits back to back nonstop.
“We can hardly see any female in that same light as them. Shouts to Wiyaala who is doing well out there, she could be an exception but the rest are still not there yet for me,” he said.
Following his interview, Arnold disagreed with him during a discussion on GhanaWeb TV’s ‘Bloggers’ Forum’ by stating that Wiyaala’s attention has been on the international market.
Days after Wiyaala’s warning, JMJ has revealed how shock he was after he came across the singer’s video. He stated that he has never disrespected her in any way.
JMJ said in an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM’s ‘DayBreak Hitz program:
“The only time I mentioned Wiyaala’s name on air was when I was giving praises to her. And you know the funny thing about the whole video? Amongst all the female artistes in Ghana, the most revered, the one that pundits don’t even say anything ugly about her is that girl.
“The only time I mentioned her was when I was praising her so I was shocked to see her video coming on such a wild outburst on me.”
“So, I asked myself, was it that it was wrong I said ‘but for the likes of Wiyaala who is doing well out there?’ if I was wrong that she’s doing well out there, then I’m sorry, it won’t happen again.”
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Wiyaala had taken social media by surprise in her latest move of flaunting her mother for the whole world to see.
The Afropop singer, who hails from Funsi in the northern parts of Ghana, did not hesitate to give her fans a feel of where she grew up.
In photos sighted YEN.com.gh on her Instagram page, the Rock My Body singer posted photos of her mother as they bonded in a special moment.
