POPULAR young Zimdancehall talent Flex Tattle has thrown salvo at one of DKT producers – Dallas, accusing him of sabotage and squandering his money.
Dallas and Flex Tattle are at odds, both accusing each other of illicit acts.
Dallas has, however, accused Flex Tattle of character assassination because he fired the latter and his colleagues due to drug abuse.
“They are just trying to paint my character dirty because I expelled them from DKT Records.
“I expelled them because of drugs,” said Dallas.
The 15-year-old chanter said Dallas imposed himself as his manager and sabotaged him on proceeds from the big shows he performed at.
“I was recorded with T Jay at DKT Records, but Dallas only appeared during functions and deals that involved money.
“He started acting as my manager as all calls about my show bookings and other business were done through him.
“The shows that I performed such as Naka Dhula Dhaka, Morgan Heritage at HICC, City Sports, Aquatic Complex and others I only got transport money and I was never paid anything though I was supposed to be rewarded for my services,” said Flex Tattle.
“The other day Baba vaBrady, one of DKT business partners, found a sponsor for me by the name Boss Gaga.
“He paid the studio time for my first album Mandiziva Here. And he paid for the City Sports Centre venue for album launch on April 27, 2019.
“Boss Gaga also sponsored me with money for clothes but Dallas went on to buy second hand clothes from bales,” he added.
Flex Tattle also said Dallas was abusive and forced him to do collabos unwillingly.
“Dallas once detained me on sun without a T-shirt as he accused me of lacking discipline.
“He also forced me to do collabos with artistes I had not agreed to work with.
“He even took my first award and kept it at his home as if he is Flex Tattle. Dallas once took my money for a mobile phone I got from Passion Java.
“When I met Passion Java I told him I bought the phone because I was scared,” he told H-Metro.
The young chanter said he left DKT Records last year and Dallas is abusing his work that he left with a studio by giving it to other artistes.
“I left DKT Records last year in June. He is even using my work by giving it to other artistes.
“He can’t allow me to use my account to upload videos, and it was closed because of him.
“He made a report of copyright violation against me. I am also pleading with him to give me my song I sang for my parents called Ngirozi Dzangu,” said Flex Tattle.
