ZIMDANCEHALL chanter Seh Calaz has lashed out at detractors who say the musician has run out of steam, saying would never be able to please every one.
The musician’s publicist, King George Damson, told NewsDay Life & Style yesterday that Seh Calaz was under no obligation to defend himself.
“Seh Calaz doesn’t need to defend anything. His work speaks for itself. He was just elaborating that it is a contradiction to say he is an artiste past his best yet year in and year out since he started singing he has works that prove otherwise. It’s an agenda because such hogwash comes from the same quarters time and again,” he said.
The Mumota Murikubvira hit-maker took to Instagram to hit back at those he termed detractors who were trying to push an agenda.
Seh Calaz said the claims were a “myth” and disrespectful of his hard work.
“My detractors use this weapon of mass disinformation to drive a mischievous agenda that shows a total lack of respect for my hard work and efforts. Since I started singing, I haven’t had a year I don’t have a song or songs that my fans go crazy about,” he said.
He said the launch of his Yala Nation stable on August 3 showed that he still had his mojo.
The recording studio promotes unsung young talent by offering free recording services.
“I admit that I am never going to be everyone’s favorite artiste. Life doesn’t work that way, but to say that I’m finished is an agenda of the wicked,” he said.
Meanwhile, Damson said Seh Calaz was a born-again Christian so people did not have to read too much in him doing songs praising God or featuring on songs by gospel artistes’ such as Mambo Dhuterere.
“He is a born again Christian, a firm believer in God and hence it should be no surprise that he sings gospel songs or collaborates with gospel artistes. He used to sing in the choir both at school and at church,” Damson said.
Damson said Seh Calaz was born and raised in a Catholic family so the priestly regalia he wore in the Hosanna video should not cause consternation.
He said the musician was now targeting to keep churning out songs and meeting the demands of his fans.
“He is also uplifting youths through Yala nation Studios as you might be aware,” Damson said.
The artiste has been involved in a lot of social media wars, with the most recent being in July with compatriot Buffalo Souljah.
