Nigerian rapper and actor Ikechukwu Onunaku, professionally known as Ikechukwu, has opened up about his experience at the now-defunct record label, Mohits Records, owned by D’banj and Don Jazzy.

In a recent interview with media personality Daddy Freeze, Ikechukwu stated that although he understands that discussing intricate details of his time at the label might upset D’banj, he wants to speak his truth because ‘the truth is the truth’.

According to him, D’banj used to pay him a meagre N50,000 for shows he was booked for, despite the actual fee being over N1.5 million. He said the ‘koko master’ used to treat him like he was doing him a favour.

However, he mentioned that D’banj later increased the payment to N150,000 after obtaining permission from his mother, who played a significant role in the label’s decision-making process.

Speaking further, Ikechukwu debunked claims of being involved in a physical altercation with D’banj years ago, adding that he served as D’banj’s bodyguard. He emphasized that nothing like that happened.
