Statement From RMG Concerning “Muna vs ModeNine” Incident


I’m sure by now we’ve all heard of the incident between Muna & ModeNine at the Nokia Dont Break The Beat which made its way to the internet late last night. If you haven’t, you can catch up here.

Here is an official statement from RMG which Muna is signed to:

It has come to my attention that the unfortunate incident that occurred at the Nokia “Don’t Break The Beat” competition on Saturday the 28th of April 2012, where RMG artiste Muna was a Presenter, and Nigerian rap icon Mode 9 was a Judge, has turned into a media/blog frenzy.

    This unfortunate misunderstanding happened on stage, and the verbal exchange between Muna and Mode 9, even though it started out as opinions quickly escalated into what I’m sure we all have seen in the
clip posted on the Internet by Nigezie.

    Mode 9 and Muna did not have any pre-existing misunderstanding or “beef” before the Nokia event. Muna’s brief as a Presenter, aside introducing the Contestants and asking the Judges for their remarks and scores, was to add more banter to the judging process, this she had done very well and incident free throughout the Zonal “rap battles” in cities like Lagos, Enugu, Benin and Abuja.

    As Muna’s management, we are duty bound to take care of this situation professionally, issue statements and all that, but as I’m in a privileged position and I know all parties involved personally, including co-judges Rogba (CEO, Knighthouse) and DJ Jimmy Jatt, I had called everyone involved to sort out this unfortunate issue amongst ourselves the morning after the incident. The clip of the incident surfacing on the Internet only just re-ignited what we’ve been trying to diffuse since the very next day.

    Like I said, we all have seen the video clip, and the interviews that followed, and of course the onslaught of comments on the internet, the justified, the objective, the insults, the threats of violence and of course a few sensible and supportive ones as well. Time will tell if Muna and Mode 9 trending on Twitter would prove to be a good thing and we’ll all get together and laugh about it later.

    Muna is a fast rising talent in the rap game, this was recognized by Nokia who gave her the opportunity to appear in their TV commercial and also present the “Don’t Break The Beat” competition which was a massive success. The brand also showed some street cred by employing the undisputed knowledge of rap in appointing Mode 9 as the Head Judge at the Finals. We would like to thank Nokia and the team at YDx for putting together a successful competition.

    Lastly, I would like to reiterate that this issue will not be resolved publicly and played out in the media or on blog pages for the amusement and enjoyment of gossip junkies and gist merchants. I’m sorry to disappoint those who are waiting with their mouths open, there will be no leaked emails, back and forth exclusive interviews or Twitter “gangsterisms”. At least not from our side, and as you all know, Mode 9 is big a man enough not to subscribe to media hype over something that, quite rightly, he took as disrespectful but not life threatening. This is Hip Hop, not the Civil War Part 2.

  3. @ mr ayo, I was so dissapointed wen I saw dis clip..mode 9 is the chief judge for cryin out loud…He’s a legend and a hip hop genereal for christ sake and that nobody can takeaway 4rm him.he’s been in d game for so long and I tink wen he started rap muna shuld stiil be in primary skool or somtin…so wat d fuck is wrong wit d bitch saying her opinion counts,who is askin for her opinion cuz the last time I checkd she was busy on stage presentin.wat d hell in heaven’s name can she rap sef? She shuld apologise to modo publicly cuz she insulted him publicly..And to u mr ayo mode nine didn’t took it as disrespectful,its actually disrespectful….Thank You

  4. A simple apology would av sufficed not all the excuses uve written. your crisis management n public relations is quite poor! ų av 2 realize that its not just abt mode 9..she disappointed both his fans and her fans and she not her label should personally make a public apology. rmbr she’s nufin wivout the support of her fans..unless she wnts 2 go into anoda bizness!

  5. Wen i 1st saw dis i tot it ws anoda taradiddle dt pipu go abt spreadin….nt until nw dt i jst red it… I tink wat muna did goes 2show how ill-mannerd n stupid she is. Embarasin mode9 of all pipu i fink wil eva remain d biggest mistake of her life. By nw she must hv lost a lotta supporterz and anytime 4rm nw we’ll all b dancin 2d requiem of her career’s demise.
    All dis wud hv bn avoided if only she hd kept her fcukin opinion 2herself. Last i checked, d presenter has no business wif d judges!

    Muna…direspect don’t take you no where, cuz you feel ure making a few coins and getting some recognition, don’t make you lyrically acclaimed. Humble urself and apologise, publicly too..abroad you would have fallen as fast as gravity would pull, but here you shouldn’t fear no fall, ure just inches of the ground.

  8. I sincerely want 2 apologize 2 d 10 people dat commented on dis blog. I knw u guyz are jobless. I also knw dat if I open my p***y wide, y’all gon wanna fcuk..yet u call me bitch. I owe noone apology except mode 9, so y’all shld go get laid
