Nigerian music producer,  Olumide Ogunade, better known as ID Cabasa, has opened up about his rift with his former signee, 9ice, about 14 years ago.

Cabasa during a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, said 9ice was upset by his decision to continue working with the latter’s ex-wife, Toni Seun Payne.

Payne managed the artists under Cabasa’s Coded Tunes Record, a label that housed her estranged husband at the time and rapper, Olamide.

Cabasa’s decision to continue working with Payne following the couple’s messy breakup did not sit right with 9ice, who eventually severed ties with the producer.

According to the producer, he kept Payne in his team, because of 9ice, and he stressed that he did it for him.

“When I started pushing Olamide, you notice I brought Toni Payne, 9ice was angry but, he had no idea why I brought Payne in.

“I brought Payne in because I needed to keep Payne and Zion close to 9ice.

“I had my networks. Mr. Kupuloyi was my publicist. If I need anyone to move my artists around, I can find someone but I saw Payne and I noticed she wanted a reconciliation.

“I felt if she takes Zion abroad, 9ice may never see his son.”
