Top on our pile right now is that Eric Senderi and Pacson are at loggerheads. We can exclusively reveal that both artists have spoken about their dispute.
Speaking to The New Times yesterday, Senderi said Pacson confronted him, saying that his music was ‘fake.’
“I don’t have any problem with anyone, not even my fans or fellow artists, but Pacson seems to have a serious issue with me,” Senderi said.
Senderi said that it all started a few weeks ago when he went to City Radio to inquire why his music was not played yet he submits his CDs.
“I was surprised by his attitude. He wasn’t the one I was asking, but he interrupted and said what was uncalled for,” he added.
The 32-year-old singer claimed that Pacson also influenced some presenters on various local radio stations not to play his music. Meanwhile, Pacson has dismissed the accusations.
“I simply tried to explain to him that there were procedures at City Radio before we play someone’s songs,” Pacson explained.
“For example, if the lyrics are abusive or ambiguous, or if the artist has a bad reputation, we don’t play their music, but Senderi took it personal.”
Pacson added that he had never told any presenter not to play Senderi’s music; adding that he had much respect for the latter because he is as old as his father.
“Besides, I’m not the head of the National Media High Council to ban one’s music from the radio stations. I’m just a radio presenter and artist.”
The singer, who is among the country’s upcoming stars, is famous for tracks like, ‘Invune’ and ‘Ineza’ featuring Diplomate.
Senderi is not a newcomer to the country’s music industry. He has been around and has experienced its highs and lows. Some of his tracks include ‘Abanyarwanda twariboheye’ and many genocide tribute songs, like, ‘Intimba y’intore y’Imana.’
