Stop trying to oppress me – Harrysong responds to Kcee


The feud between Harrysong and Five star music is no news, what is baffling is the extent they are going to oppress Harrysong which is a huge cause for concern.

In the last 6 months, Harrysong has been in and out of the police station, answering to one accusation or the other from Five star,

The most recent is the court injunction served to Harrysong and former Five star manager Soso Soberekon

The singer took to his instagram page to inform his fans of the ill actions and to seek their support as he drops his new single #Arabanko

from @iamharrysong  –  I have never seen where a lady is gang raped and beaten up mercilessly and at same time asked not to cry. Even though you and I know you offended me, I listened to the voice of elders and appologized to you despite all the opression, yet my success causes you running stomach.  And to my fans out there, please brace up for impact, since they have decided to hold us down by all means, We are ready to prove them wrong by all means…, less I forget, help me ask them, what is my crime this time? #ArabankoDropsTomorrow #altersoldiers #alterlovers #alterbase1 🙌☠👹

Harrysong is a peaceful man and will continue to try his best to make his fans happy

Mixed Up Photo Of Harrysong’s Twins- Alterplate Reacts


“Our attention has been drawn to a campaign of calumny by nay sayers, concerning Harrysong’s twins lately.

We at AlterPlate will never toy with the emotion of our numerous loyal fans, hence the need to address the issue.

The news broke on Saturday June 24, 2017 while Harrysong and the entire team were on the set of a video shoot with Emarshall at Maryland.

After the shoot we left for a show at the Civic center same day; as a matter of fact, the last few weeks have been extremely busy for the  Alterplate  team all in a bid to give our fans the best

To set the record straight, the Instagram account, @perezandtarela was set up by Harrysong’s baby mama who is very reserved and media shy, despite being a successful business woman.

She created the account with the  aim of catalogueing the growth and developement of her lovely twins,and appreciate twins in general.

Her younger sibling running the account posted internet photographs as a landing page and an overjoyed Harrysong reposted the first photos on his way from Port Harcourt.

With every sense of humility, it was a huge and regretable mistake.
To our fans and loyal followers, I say we are sorry for the confusion or any mix up the news may have generated

On the other hand, as against the original plan to release our new single titled “Wyne”, the versatile and spontaneous Harrysong has chanelled his effort into another song which was written and produced within 24 hours after the news broke”

Meanwhile…expect another major hit from Harrysong titled, ARABANKO
