The battle between Ilogos and Naiboi arose after Naiboi pulled down Arrow Bwoy’s song Toto on grounds that it was his project before Ilogos sold it to him
In a quick rejoinder, Ilogos stated that Naiboi was making unfounded claims and if he continues he will ensure his YouTube channel gets blocked completely.
“This guy is saying things that doesn’t make sense at all. How am I owing him? Is claiming of things he didn’t pay for. I made him now amefura Kichwa. If iit wasn’t for 4mulla he hit I made for him, hangepata deal ya Safaricom which ndo walisponsor 2in1, my track made him international. In fact, I was even part of ‘Usipime Mwanaume’. If he continues with this nonsense my manager will take that song down too, then his channel will be blocked by YouTube,” said Ilogos.
