9ce said his reasons were to appreciate Cabasa who has been there for him from day one.
“I am currently working on an album that would come out in October and I would title it ‘ID Cabasa’. I am dedicating the album to ID Cabasa and all the remuneration and profits from the album would go to him”.
“All the money I make from the album cabasawould go to Cabasa because of all the work he has done for me from the time of ‘Gongo Aso.’”
“When I was nobody, he was there for me; there is a difference between someone believing in you and someone encouraging you. ID Cabasa believed in me and encouraged me through his platform. Cabasa is going to produce some of the tracks on the album and he welcomed the development”.
On his collaboration with Ruggedman after six years of controversy, he said “I am happy that I collaborated on a song with Ruggedman. I am moving ahead in life; there is a point in life where you have to look back at where you are coming from and where you are going to’”
“While we are going up the ladder of success, there are people who are part of our success. Ruggedman was part of my success story so there is no point for us keeping malice. That is the reason we came back together.”
9ce added that they have a song together, which would also feature in the new album.
