The friction between Stonebwoy and his protégé, Kelvyn Boy, stoked conversation among showbiz enthusiasts as the unfortunate incident was never anticipated due to the father-and-son relationship both artistes had.
Reports of a rift in the BHIM Nation camp were rife in August with many claiming Stonebwoy and his longtime Manager, Blakk Cedi, had severed their working relationship and decided to go their separate ways due to some disagreements over monetary transactions, as well as management and control of the record label and its artistes, Kelyvn Boy and OV.
The said reports were somewhat given credence days later when Stonebwoy and Kelvyn Boy unfollowed each other on social media.
As tongues wagged over what could have sparked the brawl, a statement from Burniton Music Group, of which Stonebwoy is the President, announced that Kelvyn Boy was no longer under the label.
According to the statement, an initial one-year contract the label signed with Kelvyn Boy expired on January 21, 2019, but after an “audit”, it had no intention of renewing it.
“Consequently, the Company has decided to release Kelvyn Boy from the Agreement and he has been duly notified of this decision. Accordingly, Kelvyn Boy ceases to be an artiste under the Company and will no longer be associated with the Company and/or the BHIM Nation brand…,” the statement said.
