Ghanaian artist, Kwame Yogot has disclosed that some industry gatekeepers use artists to milk money from their labels.
He asserted that some of the Ghana Music Industry players do not have a clean heart when it comes to the industry work, adding that most artists are cowards to say it.
According to him, he joined the Ghana music industry with a clean heart but it turned out to be pain and agony rather than the great expectations he had, expressing how disappointed he was.
He made a shocking revelation about how a major gatekeeper tried stealing money from his boss and because he refused the gatekeeper, he got new artists for his label boss to sign and take him off.
He revealed that at the peak of his career, he had industry players who praised him for his good work and wanted to support him but his major gatekeepers went behind him to sabotage him to the extent that the industry players did not want to have anything to do with him.
“I am not fake but because you wanted me to help you steal funds from my label owner and I didn’t agree, you have ganged up to destroy me to my boss and I am now off the label”, Kwame Yogot said.
Kwame Yogot sent a strong warning to his former manager to stop calling industry people to stop playing his music and sabotaging him.
“The industry gatekeepers my label gave me to work with have finally destroyed me to my label boss so they should shut up and allow me to work on my own. A gang of gatekeepers are going about telling people I don’t respect so they shouldn’t play or receive my music“, he fumed.
The artist explained that he told his label boss what the industry gatekeeper was doing to him but he [his boss] did not believe him.
“There’s no importance of me explaining things to him once again because I told him a lot but he refused to believe me”, He said.

According to him, Amerado is his brother in the music industry so he does not see anything wrong with Amerado sampling his song for his new banger “Kwaku Ananse”.
“‘Kwaku Ananse’ is a hard song and a nice one. Before releasing the song, he called me around 12:00am. Immediately I saw his missed call, I called back and asked him if it was unintentional but he replied that he wants us to release a banger but I told [him] we will record it on Monday when I return from my trip. Later he sent me samples of the song and I shared on social media to help promote his works because he did so well”.Kwame Yogot
