Oluwabamishe Abioro, the Nigerian singer, also known as Young Duu, has recently addressed the controversy surrounding his alleged feud with popular skit maker Efe Oderhohwo, known as Carter Efe.

Following their music collaboration on the hit song ‘Oyinmo’, Young Du accused Efe of dishonesty.

However, Efe clarified in a statement to Saturday Beats that there were no conflicts between them. He mentioned that he had already communicated with Young Du and that everything was resolved amicably.

Efe said:

“Young Duu and I do not have any issues. I reached out to him and asked him why he was spoiling (tarnishing) my image, but he said he wasn’t doing so. Rather, it was all part of promoting our song, ‘Oyinmo’.

“I was paid for the show where I performed the song alone. I performed ‘Machala’, and when ‘Oyinmo’ was played, I initially did not want to perform it, but I did it as a way of promoting the song.”

However, in a recent interview with HipTV, Young Duu gave further insight into the situation.

He claims that he received no monetary compensation for the now-popular song with Carter Efe.

He replied:

“After dropping the song, I saw that Olamide posted about it, and I was happy. In fact, I received a lot of calls asking to be signed to their label. I felt like going with Carter Efe, and that was why when he called me for the collaboration, I responded.

“After recording and shooting the video for the song, I did not hear from him again. A few months passed before I reached out to him. He asked for my account number, claiming he would give me N500,000. To date, he has not given me the money, and he has not taken me to any show.”

He went on to say that he raised concerns on social media because Efe treated him with contempt and the public believed he was suddenly wealthy but selfish.

“The reason I raised alarm on the matter online is that everyone thinks I’m a millionaire. Whenever I reached out to Carter, how he responded was like I’m a nobody. That was why I raised the alarm online on the matter because I felt like a fool. People would not understand. They would be thinking that I’m a stingy person.

He further revealed that contrary to popular belief, he harbored no negative sentiments towards Carter but simply needed to clarify the facts, which was the reason for his online disclosure.

“Prior to going online, I confided in a few individuals who advised me to do so. It was not driven by any ill feelings towards him.”

When asked why he favored Carter over Portable, he explained, “I can only work with Carter Efe, not Portable, because Carter has a wider network of connections. It’s not that Portable lacks connections, but I prefer Carter.”

Expanding on the topic, he addressed the misconception circulating that he was signed to Portable’s record label.

He clarified, “Portable did not sign me. He mentioned that he would assist me by promoting my image. That’s what he did for me, but there is no formal agreement between us.”
