A few days ago, news broke that veteran musician – Duncan Mighty, in an open letter to former Imo State governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, claimed his life is being threatened because of money paid to him by the ex-governor to record a song with one of his boys.
Now, the artist in the middle of the whole drama has come forward to tell his side of the story.
In a recent chat with the folks at Linda Ikeji’s Blog, rapper and singer, Amaechi Perfect Gideon popularly known as M2 stated that Duncan Mighty failed to honour a record deal they signed, threatened him at his studio in Port Harcourt with a gun and was subsequently arrested by the Imo State police command where he spent three nights in jail.
In his words;
I was the guy that went viral a while back as Phyno’s look alike.
I am an indigene of Imo State and shortly after that I became quite popular in my state and got the attention of the Governor Rochas Okorocha.
The governor promised to help me and even went as far as sponsoring my education and he tried helping me get a record deal.
He spoke to Phyno, but he said he wasn’t signing any artist at that time, we reached out to Eric Many as well, but we couldn’t reach a deal and finally, we reached out to Duncan Mighty and he agreed to the deal.
Duncan Mighty agreed to take 11million naira from the governor as the fee needed for him to push my brand, record songs and all. So we signed the deal in Imo State on December 18th 2018.
Since then, Duncan Mighty disappeared and refused to take my calls or speak with any one of the governor’s aides.
We kept trying to reach him but all to no avail. So about 3months back, he sneaked into Imo State for a show, he didn’t post about it on social media but we got wind of it so we went to his hotel and got him arrested with the police. He knelt down and started begging us and he was allowed to go.
After that, he told me to follow him to Port Harcourt and when we got to his studio, he flipped again and even pointed a gun at me at his studio that’s behind Uniport. I narrowly escaped that night. He was later arrested and detained for 3-days at the Imo State CID before he was bailed on self-recognition.
Since then, he disappeared again and refused to take our calls till he came on social media to seek sympathy.
