Rapper Freda Rhymz and singer Sista Afia, who in the past seem to have taken their lyrical beef to another level, collaborated to release a new song ‘Saucy’, the first collaboration of its kind after their unsavory fight went viral.
This recent step they took to make their renewed friendship official was the release of the song.
“When we decided to settle it, it was an in-house something. We did it between my management and Sista Afia’s and we didn’t put it out for people to know and decided to drop this for people to see that we are good now.”
The viral fight between the two, according to Freda Rhymz, started during the lockdown, when Sista Afia released a song.
She said she took advantage of that to drop her own lines but did not see the beef escalating to the level it did.
“During the lockdown, things weren’t really happening, so when she dropped hers it got bars; people were talking about it so I saw it as an opportunity. I went to the studio and recorded some and when I dropped it people fell in love with it. My fans liked it but some people in the industry didn’t like it, which was Sista Afia.
“Also, she came at me and I did likewise, and it became back-to-back and emotions and things came in,” she stated.
“Me, I thought I was just dropping something to entertain fans and all that [but] it was only Sista Afia that took it in a bad way, me I thought it was lyrical.”
In the midst of the chaos, the two had recorded the song ‘Saucy’ which was set to be released with a video but the fight made it impossible for them to.
In the entertainment industry, beefing is common among artistes, and during beefs, these artistes become the centre of attraction for everyone in need of some new gossip and Freda, on this note, admitted her beef with Sista Afia channelled some traffic to her page both on Instagram and on YouTube in a previous interview.
