After what seems like a rumor that has gone on for almost a decade Kenyan reggae and dancehall artiste Shamir has finally spilled the beans regarding his alleged collaboration with reggae legend Burning spear.
During an interview with Ghetto Radio’s Brekko, Shamir confirmed that he indeed recorded a song with Burning spear after being linked up by Sarakasi dancers back in 2009.
The song however never saw the light of day because of management issues from both parties.
According to Shamir, Burning Spear’s management would not allow the song to be released because the singer rarely does collaborations with other artistes.
He says the deal was also brokered by Riza but things did not go as planned because he also fell out with his recording label at the time.
The singer also clarified why he disappeared from the music scene for close to tree years saying that he broke off a contract with his recording label at the time and decided to sit out the remaining period on his contract.
The ‘try me’ hit maker says Heavy management disrespected his terms of recording when they gave one of their clients his songs to redo and record as her own. He says he could not follow a legal step to terminate the remaining four years in his contract so he decided to remain dormant till the contract expires.
The singer says that he has now re branded and is working with BMG records to release big hit songs like photocopy love which he says his fans should look out for soon.
