‘Jennifer Lomotey’ hit maker, Kurl Songx says the attacks and threats to drag him to court by the youth of Kroboland frustrated him as a new artiste in the game.

Kurl Songx’ ‘Jennifer Lomotey’ became the talk of town following Sarkodie’s rap lines on the song where he made reference to a long-standing myth.

According to the myth, Okomfo Anokye, popular Asante fetish priest, cursed a Krobo girl for peeping at his nakedness.

This sparked a debate among industry persons who said there was nothing wrong with the rap whereas others also called for an edited version of the song.

Kurl Songx revealed to JoyNews’ Doreen Avio that, at a point, the issue really frustrated him.

“At a point it was kind of frustrating, I won’t lie because I am a new artiste and then it took me a long time to release my first single after winning MTN Hitmaker, and then you release your song and issues all over; it’s not cool. Everyone will get nervous, you get frustrated,” he said.

He added that he had a great team that encouraged him during the controversy.

“All we wanted the people of Kroboland to know was that Krobo women are the best that is what we were preaching...”

Asked if he has been able to settle the issue with the people of Krobo, Kurl Songx stated that both parties spoke and they have all moved on.

“In Ghana, we believe in moral values and I believe it too so yes they had issues, if not for issues they wouldn’t be out there saying stuff but in all we spoke and everything was ok and I think they understood what we were trying to say,” he said.

Kurl Songs also mentioned that he is about releasing singles with no collaborations.

The singer, who has featured Sarkodie and Ebony on some of his songs, debunked perceptions that he can not produce good music without featuring established artistes.
