Harrysong who had openly stated that he faced depression some years ago due to the issues he was going through and sought medical help further revealed the plight he went through at the hands of his former record label.
The singer and songwriter posted, “If not for the grace of God, with the help of some very few good men, I would’ve also died in the hands of my former label. The torment, attacks, abuses and operations back-to-back, just because I have served and wanted to move out and grow a little for myself.

“It was hell for me, the general public believed everything they said about me then, fans, supporters and show promoters bullying me everywhere, in fact, one of my friends said he would buy drinks and celebrate if I died of hunger and depression.
“I am alive today just for the few who stood by me because they know the true story and refuse to be influenced by lies just to kill an innocent man. Record labels should stop this do-or-die thingy, killing and destroying young talents just because they want to prove label power and supremacy. #justiceformohbad.”
In 2007, the singer moved to Lagos from Warri, Delta State where he became the lead singer of a live band that performed in nightclubs until he met Kcee which led to him signing for Five Star Music.
