A few weeks ago, there broke a verbal war between Diva, Iryn Namubiru, and Golden production member, Catherine Kusasira, over the theft of money and plagiarising of a song.
The scuffle broke out when Catherine Kusasira approached Iryn with ‘Jangala’ song which she believed would best suit her vocals.
Being highly regarded by the singer, Iryn was responsive and promised to get back to her.
The song writer speaks out
Afterwards, Little Boss, the song writer came to Kusasira demanding his money.
Kusasira told him to wait as Iryn had not yet responded to the song.
Little Boss then called Thedeous, the then Iryn’s manager who replied saying they were not interested in the song and had many songs similar to his that they were set to release.
Little Boss decided to look around for other artistes to sing the song but all in vain.
Later, Little Boss decided to hit the studio and record his song but little did he know that Iryn was also busy in studios doing the same song.
Iryn speaks out
In several interviews, Iryn accuses Kusasira of stealing her Shs 2m which she allegedly meant to pay for the song.
Iryn says she was shocked to hear the song on local radio stations in the names of Little Boss, the original composer, yet she had given money to Kusasira to pay for the song so that she (Iryn) could exclusively own it.
“Fusion band paid for the song at a cost of Shs 2m through Kusasira,” Iryn claims.
Iryn has resolved to give up on the song but is demanding that Kusasira settles the expenses she (Iryn) made on the song in studio.
Kusasira fires back
When contacted, Kusasira rubbished the rumour saying she never stole any money.
“No one has ever given me money. I was actually waiting for Iryn to come and clear Little Boss,” Kusasira said.
In one of the statements, Kusasira says she contacted Iryn who promised to get back to her upon the payment.
She further claims Iryn has never paid any coin while Iryn on the other side says a one Farouk of Fusion Band paid the money.
When we went behind the scenes, we were told that both Kusasira and Iryn have been playing games behind Little Boss’s back in a move to feed off his sweat.
