RuffTown records CEO Ricky Nana Agyeman, known professionally as Bullet, has responded to claims that he stole the name of Fantana from another female artist.
In a chat with Sammy Flex, on whose program the allegations were made, Bullet denied it categorically.
Nana Kwaku, a Ghanaian music researcher and eyewitness to Ebony’s accident, levelled a lot of allegations against Bullet. In one, he claimed he had stolen the name Fantana from another artist and given it to the current one.
However, Bullet told Sammy Flex that’s not what happened. According to him, he did have a female artist he promised the name to but she did not work out because she wasn’t good enough.
“…Sammy, I know the girl you are talking about but her name is not Fantana. Her name is Maame Yaa. She used to come around RuffTown records but I never gave her Fantana. I was trying to train her to sing but whenever we get to the studio, her performance never reached my expectations. She knows that she is not Fantana because I created the name and even me myself I don’t know the meaning of the name,” Bullet revealed.
He added: “When I was training her how to sing, I created Star girl, Fantana and other ones and I told her when she performs well, she will use one of the names but I never told her she was Fantana.
“I was surprised when I heard on your show that I have snubbed the real Fantana. I created the name but never gave it to anyone until the current Fantana.”
