Veteran Ghanaian rapper Nii Addo Quaynor, better known by his stage name Tinny, maintains that Stonebwoy’s decision to pay off his obligation was improper.
In an interview,Â with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM’s Daybreak, Tinny said that Stonebwoy could have chosen to ignore it if he had been sincere.
The CEO of Bhimnation, however, simply employed him to advertise his impending concert, Ashaiman To The World.
According to the â€˜Makola Kwakweâ€™ hitmaker, Stonebwoy was wrong to settle the alleged debt without prior consultation.
He feels the five times VGMA Reggae/Dancehall artiste of the year only wanted to trend and didnâ€™t consider the bad light he was creating for the legendary rapper.
He further stated that Stonebwoy could have ignored it when he heard the issue being discussed on the radio station back in May or chosen to address it off the air.
â€œI am 100% right to say that. I will be a fool to pay someoneâ€™s money without their knowledge. What shows the person is in trouble? Was I there? have I heard anything from them?â€
Explaining what he would have done if the situation was reversed, Tinny said â€œWho said the brother is in trouble? Have I heard from the brother or anything you hear you take it? Also, who said I needed that help?â€
This comes after Reggae/Dancehall artiste Stonebwoy said he was pained to hear colleague, Tinny insult him for paying off his alleged debt.
Some months ago, an event promoter called out Tinny for supposedly refusing to refund GHS2,000 paid to him for a Valentineâ€™s Day show at Worawora Afariwa Loungeon, which he failed to show up.
The promoter, in an interview on Hitz FM, remarked that â€œhe [Tinny] told me he canâ€™t pay the money so he has decided to use his car as collateral. I couldnâ€™t drive the car to my house, so, I suggested we go to the Taifa Police Station for them to seize the car until I get my money and he agreed.â€
Stonebwoy, when he heard of this during the same interview, voluntarily offered to pay his senior colleagueâ€™s supposed debt. But, Tinny, breaking his silence in an interview on Okay FM, Monday, said he is not impressed with the entire â€œclout chasingâ€.
Tinny described the claims by the event promoter and Stonebwoyâ€™s willingness to pay as an act of foolery since no one reached out to him to verify the claims. He indicated that he saw Stonebwoyâ€™s kindness as a faÃ§ade.
Meanwhile, on Daybreak Hitz, Tinny insisted that Stonebwoy had no right to pay the show promoter before finding out the facts of the case.
But, Stonebwoy explained on Monday that at the time the show promoter was making his allegations against the hiplife artiste, he stated emphatically that the case was with the police.
â€œIf someone says something is with the police, it is believable because itâ€™s a legal institution, you canâ€™t just lie on them, so that was one thing that made me think it was true, if he had mentioned anything else I wouldnâ€™t have acted on the spot.â€
