“After recording the song (Muje Baya) he said he was going to show it to investors. The next moment the song came on the radio,” Appetus said in an interview with City TV.
Appearing on CTV, Papi shared her story and accused Appiatus of ripping her off by putting her song on digital platforms and hijacking the revenue. A renowned sound engineer later joined the conversation over the phone and things went south at the show.
“He’s so stupid and stupid…Appiatus you’re dumb, barter is still payment or you don’t understand the word. You say I never paid for a studio session. You are so stupid…appeetus made you your whole career, your whole life, muje baya. All your songs, what made you?Papi asked angrily.
Appiatus lost his cool and said “Can you imagine, I have done more than 200 hits, imagine how Papi is disrespecting me on TV. I am so hurt that many producers are not helping“.
Apiatus, enraged, said that he would drag the sinner to court. “I am taking this for defamation of character. This is how you can thank me. Whenever you guys came, you were hustling and you said you couldn’t pay the fees I was charging. It’s all about barter trading so you can’t pay. I used to show you people love but then I realized I was taken for a fool,” he said.
he continued”When the songs became hits, you didn’t pay me so I had to put them online to make my money. Now you say I am a thief, thank you very much but note that I will take the matter to court.”
