Dancehall act, Iwan says his fellow dancehall musician, Samini connived with his former manager, Bulldog to shoot down his music career.
According to him, Samini after assuring him he was going to give him the opportunity to share the same stage with him during 2011 Mavado’s concert, denied him on the D-day for the event for a reason he didn’t know.

Iwan, narrating the incident on Joy FM’s Drive Time with Lexis Bill on Monday, said Bulldog formed part of the reason as he convinced Samini to deny him the chance.
“I really think Samini conspired with him [Bulldog] to stop the show because he didn’t want me to perform. I think he was threatened by my presence…,” he told Lexis Bill.
Meanwhile, Bulldog speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM on Tuesday confirmed he didn’t want Iwan to perform but he changed his mind.
According to Bulldog, he managed to calm down to allow Iwan perform but due to time constraints, the director had to push Samini up the podium so Movado could perform right after, per the programme line-up.
“I went there headstrong but I listened and allowed but Movado had to come to the premises so it did not make sense that Samini had invited Movado and didn’t appear on stage. The director made Samini go on and at that point, it was out of my hands. Sonni Bali, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale didn’t even perform on that night,” Bulldog explained.

He, however, disclosed that he had settled the matter amicably with Iwan hence couldn’t understand why he would go about cursing him.
“Iwan was my greatest investment; I sacrificed a lot for him. he has been to my home twice to apologize. Why would he do that if he hasn’t done anything in the past? He is good and must get out of the past and embrace who he is. I will bless and never curse him,” Bulldog told Andy Dosty.

Meanwhile, Mr Logic, artiste manager and entertainment critic told Iwan to take Samini out of the picture.
Recalling what led to Iwan’s hiatus in the music sphere, he said “Iwan brand coming down on the street was when he had a beef with Shatta Wale. That feud didn’t help him.”
