Okeke, who works with Jonzing writes a statement, in which he refers to Neptune as his “big bro.” The story appears to be one of a family disagreement, rather than an all out blood-thirsty war.
Okeke’s full statement reads thus;
In a bid to clear the air on the recent statements online regarding the release of the song – “For You” on DJ Neptune’s new album, I would like to make the following clarifications and assertions on the matter an hopefully put to rest this issue.
Firstly, I acknowledge that I and my big bro- DJ Neptune had conversations regarding the said collaboration as well as the song release. However at the time of recording in 2020, we had hoped that song will be released early but that wasn’t the case, in view of the revised timeline, the artist did not feel the song was good enough and would require some brushing up and urged the team to communicate same with my Big Bro.
I made it known to DJ Neptune some time during our conversation that the song can’t come out again as we don’t have anymore free release window available for the song and that the artiste also feels the song is already old hence we don’t want it out there, and promised to to follow up with the artist & label with hope of convincing all parties to approve the song release.
Since an official approval was not released nor split sheets signed, I felt the song won’t be released anymore.
Looking back at all that just happened , I really I held my ground that the artiste doesn’t really want the song released anymore which would have made DJ Neptune focus getting other songs for his album.
In conclusion, I wish to apologize to all parties involved and seek the peaceful resolution of the matter with the song in question taken down in respect of the artist’s Wish.
You might remember that…
Early on November 26, 2021, Rema took to his Twitter account for yet another rant, this time aimed at DJ Neptune, who then responded with his own statement, aiming to clear his name with screenshots.
