Kenyan music producer Magix Enga is a bitter man after an artist signed under his label Magix Empire Studios did him dirty.
The dundaing hitmaker sent threats to upcoming artist Rudra Kartel calling him out after he breached their contract.
In a long Instagram post, Magix was boastful of how he has moulded Rudra into the person he is to date. He mentioned how he offered to pay his rent, gave him clothing and free studio session but he was unappreciative.
According to Magix, Rudra went to Youtube tarnishing the producer’s name claiming he was using him.
“Few months ago I signed this Talented Upcoming Artist @rudra_kartel Magix Empire Studios. He came to me crying that @kartelo_official used him to make money after @kartelo_official posted his video to promote the guy☹️Anyway God Help this kids 🙏🏾 @djshiti_comedian Bidii yako yakuleta kijana magix empire Akilia machozi sasa ako Youtube akisema ametumika..” read his post.

For those not in the know, Rudra is an upcoming dancehall musician who a few weeks back caught the attention of the renowned Jamaican musician Adidja Azim Palmer better known as Vybz Kartel.
Having the best of interest, some Kenyan artists introduced Rudra to Magix Enga and he was signed under his studios.
The beef between the two may have started after Magix learnt that Rudra and VDJ Jones had a song together prompting him to clear the air.
“Ameruka contract for a free collabo. but what can I say,” said Magix.
Magix signed off his long post telling Rudra that their contract remained the same and with no free collabos, he also urged upcoming artists to be humble be patient with the process.
Kenyan celebrities in equal measure were left in utter shock upon learning the beef between the two.
Here are some of their reactions:
But hawa wasanii manze wanafaa waelewe na walearn kutrust process. Mtu akulipie rent, chakula, mavazi, etc hapa Nairobi then useme anakutumia is very unfair. the way nilipeleka huyu boi kwa magix kwakweli nitofauti navile yuko saizi.
People need to respect contracts if they can’t respect people coz we MUST respect contracts iwe ya record lable ama ikuwe ni ya concerts
