Five Star Music act, Kcee played into our hands yesterday.
The Limpopo singer granted an interview with Punch newspaper and because God is so good, Kcee touched on the rumours of his billionaire brother, E-Money’s dealings in shady activities.
In defending his brother, Kcee shared a very familiar grass to grace story and laced it with the trite rhetoric “we are from a Christian home and we are very careful with our lifestyle“, forgetting himself that it is in these times of our lives we read that Evans, the infamous billionaire kidnapper has a strong penchant for reading Psalm 23.
Kcee also said, “My brother is not into drugs or anything illegal, my brother is a hardworker” and the story read good until he put a bullet to his own foot when he said, “For 17 years, people have been saying that we do drugs or 419 but why have we never been caught? Why haven’t we made a mistake? Why hasn’t someone come to expose us?“.
We apologise for we know how damaging it can be for your reputation to have been plagued with “rumours” for nearly two decades but if the narrative hasn’t changed for so long, then it’s probably true and that’s why we’re very worried for Kcee and his brother, E-Money. We’re not making any accusations as we hardly have any proof and we’re not even concerned about digging deep but if Nigerians have been persistent about their suspicions for 17 freaking years, we have reason to believe them.
To be fair on E-Money, Kcee admits he’s into clearing and forwarding and it didn’t take long to find proof. E-Money, other than being the boss at Five Star Music, is the Managing Director/CEO of a shipping company, Emy Cargo.
Although we were able to corroborate that part of Kcee’s story, something still doesn’t add up and we’re definitely curious as to why a clearing and forwarding boss needs to move around town with armed policemen. We know President Buhari ordered the removal of police attachments from private individuals but a businessman like E-Money still has them on his payroll, fully-armed and ready for war. But that’s a Nigerian problem, so we’ll let E-Money off.
From where we stand, Kcee’s interview nosedived at the point where he asked the following questions, “why haven’t we been caught?”, “why haven’t we made any mistakes?”, “why hasn’t anyone exposed us?”. Three telling questions that are almost pushing us to say “it’s only a matter of time”. But that’d be a digression from the point.
What we simply want from Kcee and E-Money is to be clear on the source of this immense wealth that they so love to flaunt. A grass to grace story is incomplete until it inspires. How about show us how you multiply your millions in these difficult times? E-Money owes it to the young people, thousands of them who crawl around his Instagram page thirsty for answers.
