Corey Todd is not new to dancehall controversy. The business man was recently implicated in an alleged altercation with sound system selector Bill Cosby as well as a bitter split with ex-partner Vybz Kartel.
Last week rumors surfaced that Todd denied a request from reggae star I-Octane to voice on a riddim produced by NotNice. Now Todd, who manage both Khago and NotNice, has stepped forward to address the rumors.
During an interview with Anthony Miller of ER, Corey Todd said he did in fact denied Octane request to voice on the riddim, but it was an executive decision in the best interest of his artist Khago, who has been feuding with the “My Life” singjay.
“You have to understand the political landscape of dancehall,” Corey Todd said. “By no means I am saying segregate artists or anything like that. But I just finds it ironic that or I don’t know if its genuine, now that Khago’s career is doing very well and he is aligned to us, now all of a sudden you wan’t to voice on a NotNice track.”
Corey Todd added that he has a duty to look out for Khago’s best interest.
During same episode of ER, fans on the street gave mix reactions to Vybz Kartel’s recent murder charge.
