I thanked Kaywa from my heart; no one forced me – Lasmid speaks
Music sensation Lasmid has set the record straight about the tribute he gave to his former boss, Kaywa, during the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards. In an interview on Daybreak Hitz with Andy Dosty, the reigning New Artiste of the Year revealed that he had not been coerced into giving a glowing tribute to Kaywa on the awards night.
Lasmid candidly shared that he was hopeful of clinching the prestigious award and had even prepared an acceptance speech. However, when he was declared the New Artiste of the Year, nervousness took over, leaving him unsure of how to deliver his prepared speech.
“I am a very shy person,” he confessed, “and I didn’t know how to go about it. I wasn’t ready to read from my written speech.”
Recently, Kaywa, his former manager, claimed that Lasmid had to be prompted to thank him for his role in his success under the Highly Spiritual Music label during the VGMA night. Contrary to Kaywa’s comments, Lasmid firmly stated that he spoke from the heart and nobody instructed him on what to say.
“No one told me anything,” he clarified, “I thanked him genuinely from my heart.”
While Lasmid acknowledged meeting and speaking to Kaywa backstage, he also disclosed that he is now an independent artiste. However, he chose not to divulge the reasons behind his departure from the record label, deeming them as matters best discussed privately.
“Now I am independent,” he stated, “Kaywa is my Godfather, and I believe we should all move forward with our work.”
Lasmid’s transition makes him the latest artist to depart from the Highly Spiritual record label, following in the footsteps of other talented artists like Kurl Songx, Rachelle Blue, Krymi, Mr. Drew, Yaw Berk, and King Maga. As he continues to promote his latest single, ‘Bad Boy,’ the future looks bright for Lasmid as he embraces his artistic independence and charts his own path in the music industry.
