Dancehall singer, African China was years back embroiled in a rape scandal that almost ruined his music career.
Many music lovers alluded that the ‘Food no dey’ sensation may be suffering a setback in his career as a result of the UK rape scandal.
Debunking the claim, African China said: “The UK rape scandal has never been a major setback for my music because I won the case; so why will it have a negative effect on me? It will only have effect on someone who was found guilty, and in my case I wasn’t. I have never had to lose a show, business or refund monies for shows over the rape scandal. I have been investing to keep up with life, he told Vanguard.
Speaking further on the controversial issue, he said: ”Don’t forget I shot the video of ‘London Fever’ in the UK too in 2007. I am a face, a brand for life no one can take that from me. After the scandal, I released ‘London fever’, which was a big hit as at 2006/2007. In 2008, I dropped another hit, ‘If you love somebody’, and it was a success. After these, I dropped the ‘Body dey do me’ album, followed by new singles, ‘Anu Gboko’, ‘I want to know’, and many others after which the contract I signed with my management expired.”
