In the aftermath of the tragic passing of the young and promising singer Mohbad, whose demise has been associated with the challenges he encountered while under his former label, numerous artists have begun sharing their own experiences regarding the difficulties they’ve faced within the music industry.
Among those voices is singer Harrysong, who has opened up about the harrowing trials he endured during his tenure with his previous record label. Harrysong attributes his survival to both divine grace and the support of compassionate individuals who stood by him.
He recounted a period marked by relentless hardships, enduring a barrage of hardships, mistreatment, and relentless pressure, all stemming from his desire to transition from his former label. Harrysong aptly described this tumultuous period in his life as a form of ‘hell.’ He also highlighted how the public readily believed the narratives spun about him, resulting in him being subjected to relentless bullying and scrutiny.
“If not for the grace of God, with the help of some very few good men. I would’ve also died in the hands of my former label. The torment, attacks, abuses, and operations back to back. Just bcos I’ve served and wanted to move on and grow a little for myself. It was hell for me, the general public believed everything they said about me then. Fans, supporters, and show promoters, bullying me everywhere. In fact, one of my friends said he would buy drunks, and celebrate if I die of hunger and depression. Am alive today just for the few that stood for me and by me. Cus they know the true story and refuse to be influenced by lies just to kill an innocent man, record labels should stop these do-or-die things, killing and destroying young talents just because they want to prove label power and supremacy”.
The death of Mohbad has led many upcoming artists to speak out on their bitter ordeal with their label.
