‘R. Kelly Wanted To Do A Collaboration With Me But I Refused’ – C-Zar
Popular Ghanaian musician, C-Zar, has told Accra-based 3FM that American singer, Robert Kelly, wanted to do a collaboration with him but he refused.
C-Zar, who was speaking on how Ghanaians artistes ought to brand themselves well to look appealing to the international market, said he was in a certain studio recording a song somewhere last week in the United States when the American singer walked in.
According to him, R. Kelly instantly fell in love with his rap and requested for a collaboration. C-Zar further stated that the American singer was willing to pay him a million dollar but he refused.
Asked why he let go of such an offer, the Mercy Lokko hit maker said a million dollar is too small for the kind of brand he has built for himself over the years. He also stated that R. Kelly’s music career is dead and he wanted to use him (C-Zar) to revive it.
“It’s shocking how Ghanaian artistes chase these foreign stars for collaboration. They are nothing to me. You know I stayed in America before coming to Ghana to do music. They see me as a star anytime I go there. Most Ghanaians worship R. Kelly but this same person was running after me for a collaboration. His music career is dead and want to use me to come back,” C-Zar said.
By way of proving that he has been following his music career for long, C-Zar said R. Kelly sang some lines in his popular song, Araba Lawson, for him to hear.
C-Zar advised Ghanaian musicians to work hard like himself and build a strong brand for themselves. This, he said, will attract the right musicians.
