Word has been brewing in the rumour mill and steaming on social media that urban musician Young Kay has retired from music.
Speaking to The Nation on Wednesday, the Anankabango hit-maker denied ever saying he has resigned, claiming it is just a hoax created by some fanatics who thrive on controversy.
“Resigning? That is the last thing on my mind. I am still in the music business and there is more that I have planned for my fans,” said the MAM Awards best hip hop artist nominee.
Rumours have also been making rounds that Young Kay decided to retire after he was apparently riled by an altercation between award winning best hip hop Gwamba and rapper Tay Grin on stage during a performance of the Mwezi Wawala song at the Musicians Association of Malawi (MAM) Awards in Lilongwe at the weekend.
But Young Kay refuted that there was no hard feelings between the two.
“People are just blowing things out of proportion, just because we are hip hop artists doesn’t always mean that there is beef between us. He [Gwamba] pushed Tay Grin because there was no space and not out of hate, I don’t see why that is an issue,” said Young Kay.
The rumours come after fellow rapper Third Eye’s status update on Facebook that fans should look out for a collaborative between him and Young Kay.
