‘A disgrace and waste of talent’ says King Tee Dee
…As Exit diss track backfires
EXIT wanted beef and he got exactly what he asked for. Last week the local Kwaito artist went on an Instagram story rant, calling out Gazza and King Tee Dee for not retiring and leaving the industry to make way for emerging talent. He also released a diss track, which features Kaimbi, and although he says many things in the song, what stood out is that he is supposedly giving King Tee Dee and Gazza 29 days to retire. At first, both King Tee Dee and Gazza didn’t pay any attention to the rant. Exit then continued, writing that King Tee Dee and Gazza both influenced him and this generation of Namibian artists and that he was grateful to them but he also insisted that there is a new generation of artists like Young T, M-Jay, D-Kandjafa and many more. “Allow us to influence our generation in peace my guys, so we also give a chance to somebody else to influence the next generation,” Exit argued. He then posted “My Father Lord, who art in heaven, we pray that our SWAPO money does not go to waste, please give it to EXIT.” This may be in reference to the N$5 million that was supposedly paid to King Tee Dee and Gazza by the ruling party a few years ago ahead of an election campaign. As usual, King Tee Dee had some words of his own and posted a lengthy statement on Facebook to get back at Exit. He wrote that Exit should start using condoms and get himself checked before he makes too many kids, which he might not be able to afford. “Get something better to do that will build you, it has been two years I haven’t released an album and I am doing fine and still breathing well. What did you do in those two years I was not in the game, you could have taken advantage of that and go to the top, but you were busy with drugs and alcohol and girls. Brokeness got you depression." (sic) “Being broke isn’t a joke especially when you claim to be a hustler but you still stay at your mamma’s house at the age of 30 and still take taxi. Go hard or go home and now you never went hard so you went home. Use a condom, drink water and stay safe." “Mr Rockwhatever, sorry that you are depressed we can help you and see you at the 28 09 19 if you have value by then, Mushe is hustlers not you. What a disgrace and waste of talent,” Tee Dee rebutted. Exit collaborated with King Tee Dee on one of his tracks, titled ‘Go Hard or Go Home’, as well as with Gazza on a track titled ‘To Ti Ngaa’. We can only hope these artists resolve their issues soon and get back to the music.
