Rema’s manager, Sean Okeke responds to DJ Neptune’s statement, regarding the ongoing ‘For You’ drama, stating that he was of the notion the song won’t be released.
DJ Neptune dropped his sophomore album, the second volume of his debut piece, Greatness this morning. The star-studded 16-track project features acts like Laycon, Mr Eazi, Patoranking, Bella Shmurda, Adekunle Gold, Blaqbonez, Rema amongst others.
Rema is obviously displeased with the move by DJ Neptune, as he took to social media to urge him to take down the track.
DJ Neptune in his response insisted that he had indeed gotten permission from the artist’s management before going ahead to release the song on his second studio album, Greatness 2.0.
He shared pictures of chats between himself and Rema’s manager, Seun Okeke, which proved he was given the approval to publish the song and also make preparations for a music video.
Sean Okeke has now narrated his own side of the story, stating that he was of the notion that the song won’t be released, as he also urged for an amicable solution to the problem.

In a bid to clear the air on the recent statements online regarding the release of the song – “For You” on DJ Neptune’s new album, I would like to make the following clarifications and assertions on the matter an hopefully put to rest this issue.
Firstly, I acknowledge that I and my big bro- DJ Neptune had conversations regarding the said collaboration as well as the song release sometime last year 2020.
Few months passed, and the artiste felt the song shouldn’t be released any more as there was no more release timeline for it and urged me to communicate same with my Big Bro.
I made it known to DJ Neptune some time during our conversation that the song can’t come out again as we don’t have anymore free release window available for the song and hence we can’t put it out there. I also on my part promised to to follow up with the artist & label with hope of convincing all parties to approve the song release.
Since an official approval was not released nor split sheets signed, I felt the song won’t be released anymore.
Looking back at all that just happened , I really I wish I had just held my ground that the artiste doesn’t really want the song released anymore which would have made DJ Neptune focus on getting other songs for his album.
In conclusion, I wish to apologize to all parties involved and seek the peaceful resolution of the matter with the song in question taken down in respect of the artist’s Wish.
