Explaining further, the ex-MoHits staff claimed Ikechukwu was only a friend of the label who got entitled and that he enjoyed even more benefits than the musicians signed on the label. He also added that the rapper tried to fight Dbanj, and they were not having it, so he was sent packing.

In his words:

“@daddyfreeze pls ask Ikechukwu who bought him his first Range Rover, and paid his house rent for years, Ikechukwu was never signed to Mohits and never deserved to be paid, he was just a mutual friend with entitlement. All Ikechukwu hits were done by Mohits Artists Wande Coal, D’Prince, and Dr Sid… Ikechukwu even enjoyed more facilities more than Mohit Artist.. baba the story long and yes ikechukwu wanted to fight Dbanj but we didn’t allow that, we had to chase him out of d house.”
