“We were not friends at all.” Flavour sets record straight on friendship with the Late MC Loph

mc-loph-199x3002High-life musician, Flavour, in a recent interview with Punch newspaper, talked extensively about his relationship with late singer, MC Loph. After MC Loph’s death, reports claimed his mum (now late) was disappointed in Flavour for never visiting or calling her. It was also reported that MC Loph was the one who accommodated Flavour in his house, when he first came to Lagos. After his passing, Flavour sang a tribute in his honour titled Iwe. In the song, Flavour mourned MC Loph and even talked about how he (MC Loph) housed him and hung out with him. Here’s what Flavour said in an interview with Punch:

“MC Loph and I weren’t as close as people thought. I met Loph through Mr. Raw when I came to Lagos. He wanted me to produce for him the same way I was producing for Mr. Raw. Somehow, we came together and we did the Osondi Owendi song. We later found out that we came from the same village. I played a very big part in the song. People would always want me to perform the song. But I couldn’t. What is the essence of collaborating when you cannot play the song? It didn’t make any sense. He said people told him I was performing his song. I felt, ‘Oh, it is now your song?’ That was the last time we really spoke to each other. I decided to ‘free’ him.

“Yes, we were not friends at all. We just did a song together. People just had a misconception about the whole thing. I never told anybody this before and I still insist it is not something we should talk about.

“I met his mother just once in my life. We went for a show at Nnewi and we passed through our village. He got down to see his mother and I followed him. I greeted her and I gave her money that day. She was very happy. We left. I was surprised when people started saying I abandoned his mother when he died. It is not fair to talk about this since he is no more. But then, I feel it is time I became honest and open up because people have said a lot of things about me. It is not fair. He never greeted my father one day, let alone visiting him. But I couldn’t confront him because of that. I felt he didn’t have any business with my father. He could choose to greet him or not. We were not related, we just came from the same village.”
