Black Skin’s Team Worried Over His Delayed Arraignment.
Written by Derrick Asaba on November 30, 2021
Following his alleged detainment at Jinja Road Police Station on Saturday last week, popular songwriter Black Skin’s team have their palms onto their cheeks as their person hasn’t been brought to court.
News reaching our desk indicates that the team tried reaching out to singer Bebe Cool alias Moses Ssali who is behind his arrest but all their efforts have been futile.
According to reports, Frederick Ssenyonga alias Black Skin’s arrest was ignited by Bebe Cool on allegations of character assassination, blackmail and defamation.
Trouble arose after Black Skin wrote Bebe Cool’s latest single, ‘Gyenvudde’. Much as the song was eventually released, the songwriter (Black Skin) claimed he was not financially honoured.
This encouraged him to publicly announce the act and asked Bebe Cool to remunerate him for his efforts. He went ahead and released the original version of the song in question.
Before releasing his own version weeks later, Blackskin threatened to teach two faded artists a lesson for always not wanting to pay content creators. He claimed he would send the unnamed artists into retirement since they cannot make their own music.
“Am going to send you in retirement you two faded artists. You can’t make music and you don’t want to pay creators,” he was reportedly quoted to have said on social media.
When the 24 hour ultimatum elapsed without any response from Bebe, Blackskin took to his social media accounts and shared the version of his song.
News started spreading on Saturday like wild fire that Black Skin had been arrested. Later, his close friend and associate, producer Eno Beats confirmed the news through his Facebook page early on Sunday morning.
Black Skin is the brain behind mega hits like Up and Whine by Bebe Cool, Tweyagaleko by Ntale, 32, Ex and Bagikona by Spice Diana, Akusse, Tunywe, Muwe and Ndiwanjawulo by Sheebah Karungi, Tokyayitaba by Weasel, Ampalana and Embuzi Zakutudde by Gravity Omutujju among others.
