Hip Hop star, Daniel Kigozi aka Navio has lashed out at his 'haters' in an angry facebook rant.
Navio who has just released his latest track, 'On and On', a collaboration with American RnB singer, Keith Sweat is so bitter with a section of people he refers to as 'haters'. He claims that instead of supporting artistes, they end up with a foot in their mouth as he explains below:
"The big challenge is individuals going out of their way to undermine artists. Every artist has people dedicated to this cause of undermining them."
He goes on to explain; "For example, I was excluded from the line up for R-Kelly’s show. A year later, he was mixing me drinks at his pool bar in his Chicago house. And we were about to hit the studio."
Cruises Akon's Lamborghini - "Next I was purposefully excluded from the Akon show. Next thing you know I’m in his Lamboghini driving around Atlanta a month ago."
And finally, in the just concluded Nile Gold Jazz Safari that had Keith Sweat as one of the performers at Kampala Serena Hotel, Navio was told that he won't attend, perform or see Keith Sweat as he explains:
"Next at Keith Sweat, I was told I wouldn’t be able to attend, perform or see him. Keith lands, calls me up for lunch. He demands seats for me at the show, then to really make these guys feel angry, he calls me on stage at the climax of the show."
He wraps up: "The moral is, God's plan always prevails and it is better to help your artists rather than to end up with a foot in your mouth. Like every other country in Africa, be proud and help your artists. Our victories are yours."
Do not be a slave to your bitterness. Promote your culture as he signed off.
