Ghanaian music producer Ephraim Musiq has lamented how greedy now defunct music group ‘Ruff N Smooth’ have been by refusing to pay for a music he produced for them over five years ago.
Taking to social media, Ephraim explained that he produced a song for the duo, Akhan and Bullet who used to perform as Ruff N Smooth, a song which featured a Liberian musician named Deng.
He says he released the song for them to listen after he was done with the final work, but instead of Ruff N Smooth to pay him for his production services, they went ahead to release the song and has since refused to pay him despite his numerous attempts to get them to honor their debt.
He went on to say that in 2015, Ruff N Smooth cashed in on the song without seeking his consent by selling it to Hollywood filmmakers to be featured in a movie. Regardless of the dollars raked in, he claims he is yet to get paid for the work he did.
Ephraim promised to get dirty if he isn’t settled what he’s due by Akhan and Bullet.
“Now this is why I sometimes say some Ghanaian Musician’s are greedy? Now I produced this song for ruff and smooth ft a top notch artiste from Liberian called deng.. after releasing the song to the artistes “ruff and smooth” for listening, they released the song without paying me a dime…I chased them for my money but to no avail.. fast forward == they sold the song to be used in a Hollywood movie in the year 2015 without my consent..
