A former member of the dancehall group SM Militants, Melvin Da Joint, popularly known in showbiz as Joint 77, has publicly denied knowing his former boss, Shatta Wale during an interview.
Joint 77 made this shocking comments about the “dancehall king” in an interview with Mzz Gee on the New Day show on TV3, Thursday, Febraury 2021.
The “Forgetti” hitmaker reiterated that the Militants never had any benefit or royalty for their stint with the Shatta Movement boss, even though the latter publicized that they have been signed and paid for being under the Movement.
I don’t know him, you know the person I thought I knew turned out to be a different person, we never got anything like royalties from the songs and collaborations we did. I just moved on and I’m doing my thing, that’s why I’m here pushing myself, trying to put myself out there cos people didn’t know much about me, people even though we were just there using people’s money just like that, which wasn’t true
We have been in this game for long, we know what we are doing, we know our left and right, we know how this game is supposed to go so if somebody sits somewhere and talk about what he or she doesn’t know about, it’s that person’s own problem.
