Gospel music singer Simon Peter, better known as Hopekid has defended his decision to attend a concert by Busy Signal.
The singer was among the revelers during the Jamaican artist’s concert at the KICC last month. Being a secular music concert, fans of Hopekid raised concerns about his attendance.
Defending himself, Hopekid said he was there for the music.
“I know you guys are expecting me to lie but let me say this. I was there for the music and I can’t deny that I don’t know Busy Signal and I don’t know the music he does. He does the same kind of music I do, just that he is on the other side. I was there basically for the experience. I love live band music and more so, I love live reggae band music, and so I was there to witness the show,” Hope said.
Hopekid also had a message for beefing gospel artists urging them to bury the hatchet.
“If you want to fight, then go ahead and fight. Real men do not fight with words. If you want to beat Alemba, beat Alemba but don’t write him a letter.”
