Bongo star Rich Mavoko has come out to address reports that he begged Diamond Platnumz for a chance to return to Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB).
Speaking to Clouds FM this week, the ‘Ibaki Story’ hitmaker said he would rather be languishing in poverty than beg Diamond for a return to the label he quit in 2018.
Mavoko, who is currently working on his brand ‘Billionaire Kid’, accused Diamond’s camp of spreading falsehoods that he begged for forgiveness.
“Mimi kwa kweli nilikuwa mgeni nilifanya tu kuambiwa na mdogo wangu, kwanza akiwa anacheka eti ameona taarifa kuwa naomba msamaha. Nikamwambie wewe ni kama unaumwa wewe…nimeomba msamaha wapi, maana mdogo wangu aliponitumia link nikaona wao(Wasafi) ndo wanasema hivo lakini mimi sijawahi kujaribu kufanya kitu kama hicho,” said Mavoko.
“Niwaambie tu ndugu zangu wale waliokuwa wanategemea hicho hakiwezi kutokea. Mimi heri tu nibaki na nguo iliyochanika kuliko kuvua shati nibaki kifua wazi,” he added.
On August 9, 2018, Tanzania’s arts and music board Basata okayed Mavoko’s request to quit Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB), ending his 2 years-and-2 months stint at the stable.
Before joining WCB, Rich Mavoko was signed to Kenya’s Kaka Empire.
