Singer Kelvin Sean Calls Out Skales, Samklef for Intellectual Theft And Financial Fraud

Kelvin Sean has accused Skales of fraud.

According to the singer, he flew to Lagos from Toronto to get Skales to work with him on his single, Down Low, in 2014. It was a paid feature recorded in Lekki, and after the song was done, Skales contacted him the following day, asking for help on the song Shake Body.

Kelvin Sean claims Skales was stuck on the first part of the song at that time and needed Kelvin’s help. The Canada-based Nigerian contributed by writing the second part and did not ask for a financial reward because Skales had just been dropped by Banky W’s EME.

“I didn’t even ask him for credit. Instead I offered him my friendship. A friendship he was always fake about,” says the aggrieved singer who said their relationship went down the hill after the Nigeria-based singer colluded with Samklef to swindle him.

“Samklef told me he was going to contract the video Shoot for the Song in which I featured Skales to @unlimitedla. I paid him the sum total of N1.2 million all cost included,” Kelvin Sean said, adding, “On the day of the shoot, Samklef told me he was going to direct the video himself, and that Unlimited LA wasn’t available to direct the video shoot. Reluctantly, I agreed to it. And the end result was a video I turned down; due to it being very much below standard. I asked for my refund.”

He continued, “Samklef wrote me a bounced cheque and till date hasn’t refunded my N1.2 million. Skales says i just became his enemy, but in truth he never treated me as a friend. Always on that fakeness. ”

The Canada-based artist has published the details of his chart with Skales, even though the Shake Body singer did not admit to the scam.

And why he is publishing all of this details now?

“As you can see from Skales’ responses in our chat on WhatsApp, he believes I don’t have a voice; however, I’m no pushover,” he said.

Part 1: Humans can be really ungrateful and truly wicked. This is Skales; Nigerian afrobeats artist. I called him out on his page for being a fake nigga and he blocks me. Here is the background story: In and around February 2014, i flew to Lagos from Toronto, to work on my music. This was just shortly after skales was dropped by EME, we met and worked on a song together (my song tittled "Down Low" produced by Samklef). Skales was paid for the feature. He was also really impressed with my style. Mind you this studio session took place at a hotel in Lekki Phase 1. The next afternoon, i went back to the hotel to grab the mix of the track from Samklef. On getting to the hotel, Skales approached me. We went into his hotel room; where there were a few producers, Including popular producers Jay Pizzle and Kenny Wonder. Going from the vybz from the previous night's studio session, Skales played me the beat to "Shake body". At that point, he had already recorded the first verse (the english part of the song). He told me he was stuck and wanted me to vibe to it. I listened to the beat and wrote the French "Faro Faro" infused stlye lyrics to the song, with the exact flows he used to record the actual final mix of the song. Knowing fully well what he was going through at the time; being dropped from EME and just doing his thing at the time, i encouraged him and told him "Shake body" was the hit that would finally break him to the world. I didn't know Skales for more than a day at that point. I didnt ask him for money. I didn't even ask him for credit. Instead i offered him my friendship. A friendship he was always fake about. He even coluded with Samklef to Scam me off 1.2million naira in 2014. Samklef told me he was going to contract the video Shoot for the Song in which i featured Skales to @unlimitedla. I paid him the sum total of N1.2 million all cost included. On the day of the shoot, Samklef told me he was going to direct the video himself, and that Unlimited LA wasn't available to direct the video shoot. Reluctantly, i agreed to it. And the end result was a video i turned down; due to it being very much below standard. I asked for my refund… (cont. Next post)
