Kennis Music: Kenny Ogungbe and Dayo Adeneye part ways over money palava
The duo of Kenny and Dayo with their entertainment outfit revolutionalized the hip hop genre of music in this part or the world through their numerous radio and television programme in the early 1990s. They popularized the first major hip-hop group inNigeria called – Remedies. These groups actually changed the face of Nigeria’s hip hop music scene.
According to a celebrity blog, the founders of Primetime Africa have parted ways based on disagreement over MTN contract renewal. D1 is responsible for handling negations on behalf of the company and MTN’s decision to review their terms of contract with Primetime Africa did not go down well with him, hence his refusal to encourage his partner to sign thedeal.
Kenny Ogungbe’s brother, ID, was reported to have put pressure on his elder brother to go ahead and accept the new terms of contract with the telecoms giant without reverting back to his partner. D1 was said to have heard about the renewal when a staff of MTN contacted him to ask why he was no longer coming with the team when the negotiation was going on.
A furious D1 confronted Kenny who in turn told him ID advised him to go for the deal. Disappointed at the turn of event, D1 no longer attends anything that has to do with Primetime Entertainment and Kennis music. Even, hehas boycotted their popular Primetime show on Ray Power FM and Kenny keeps telling listeners D1 is on assignment.
A close source said D1 has contacted a popular law firm in Lagos to act on his behalf regarding splitting the assets of the company as heis working on forming an independent TV show that will focus on interviewing celebrities.
