Oluwabamishe Abioro, the Nigerian singer, who is also known as Young Duu, has broken his silence on his feud with popular skit maker Efe Oderhohwo, better known as Carter Efe.

Recall that Young Du had accused Efe of cheating him after their music collaboration that produced his popular song titled ‘Oyinmo’.

However, Efe, in an interview with Saturday Beats, insisted that he did not have any issues with the singer.

He claimed that he had reached out to the singer and that they were good.

Efe said, “Young Duu and I do not have any issues. I reached out to him and asked him why he was spoiling (tarnishing) my image, but he said he wasn’t doing so. Rather, it was all part of promoting our song, ‘Oyinmo’.

“I was paid for the show where I performed the song alone. I performed ‘Machala’, and when ‘Oyinmo’ was played, I initially did not want to perform it, but I did it as a way of promoting the song.”


But in a recent interview with HipTV, Young Duu shed more light on the matter.

According to him, he did not make a dime from the now-popular song with Carter Efe.

He said, “After dropping the song, I saw that Olamide posted about it, and I was happy. In fact, I received a lot of calls asking to be signed to their label. I felt like going with Carter Efe, and that was why when he called me for the collaboration, I responded.

“After recording and shooting the video for the song, I did not hear from him again. A few months passed before I reached out to him. He asked for my account number, claiming he would give me N500,000. To date, he has not given me the money, and he has not taken me to any show.”

He added that the reasons he raised alarm on social media were because of how Efe treated him with disdain and how the public thought he was now rich but selfish.

“The reason I raised alarm on the matter online is that everyone thinks I’m a millionaire. Whenever I reached out to Carter, how he responded was like I’m a nobody. That was why I raised the alarm online on the matter because I felt like a fool. People would not understand. They would be thinking that I’m a stingy person.


He further disclosed that contrary to popular belief, he had no bad feelings towards Carter but just needed to set the records straight, which was why he went online.

“Before I went online, I confided in a few people, and I was advised to do so. It was not about having any bad feelings towards him.”


Asked why he preferred Carter to Portable, he said, “I can only deal with Carter Efe, and not Portable because he has more connections than portable. It’s not that portable doesn’t have connections, too, but I prefer Carter.”

Speaking further, he cleared the air on the misconception making the rounds that he was signed to Portable’s record label.

He stated, “Portable did not sign me. He said he would try to help me by putting my face out there. That’s what he did for me, not that he signed me. We do not have any signed agreement.”
