Ex-Doe and Chicago

Rapper Chicago who shot to fame after he featured on ‘Daavi Mede Kuku’ song with colleague Ex-Doe in 1997, says thanks to the beef they were able to make a lot of money.

In an interview on Asempa FM’s weekend entertainment show dubbed Tête-à-Tête, Chicago, born Patrick Gogoh, said because of the attention the beef created he landed many shows which paid him well.

“Sometimes, you have to grab the bull by the horn. If I hadn’t done that like no one would hear from me…we took advantage of the situation,” he told the host Kweku Adu Kumi.

Ex-Doe and Chicago had a beef in the ’90s over ‘Daavi Mede Kuku’ track. The feud started when both artistes claimed full ownership of the song.

Ex- Doe released a diss song called ‘Maba’, and Chicago also subsequently released a counter diss song, ‘Nipa Ye Adea Ose Ayeyi’. Both songs became the talk of the town then.

Meanwhile, speaking with Chicago in his latest interview, he recounted playing about five shows in a day because of the buzz that he had garnered then.

He stated that they had become a hot commodity and every event organiser wanted to have them on their show.

“We were just smart about it. I even lost my voice; five shows in one day. So imagine the cash we got. If we didn’t look smart, we would have made a folly out of ourselves,” he said.
