Ghanaian music producer Vacs, known in private life as Francis Evans Ackah, has opened up about the bitter fallout with musician Darkovibes, shedding light on the behind-the-scenes story that’s been brewing in the shadows of the music industry.
Vacs reminisced about their close-knit circle of talented individuals in Mallam, a suburb of Accra, where they pledged mutual support as friends climbing the ladder of success together in the early stages when they met.
However, the dynamics shifted drastically after Darkovibes soared to fame with the track “Mercy,” a song produced by Vacs himself.
Expressing his disappointment, Vacs highlighted Darkovibes’ change in attitude following his rise to stardom. He specifically addressed Darkovibes’ apparent disrespect during an interview with Kwaku Manu, where the musician downplayed Vacs’ role, referring to him as merely a ‘studio boy’ when they first met.
The producer didn’t mince words, exposing what he deemed as Darkovibes’ hypocritical social media facade and living conditions, alleging that despite the fame, the musician resides in a humble single room. Vacs further underscored Darkovibes’ recent return to his roots for a concert, suggesting a loss of momentum in the artist’s career.
The palpable frustration in Vacs’ voice resonated as he labeled Darkovibes a ‘sellout,’ pointing fingers at his abandonment of the very friends and collaborators who contributed to his ascent in the music industry.
Despite the discord, Vacs remains undeterred in his own artistic endeavors. As a producer and musician, he recently dropped two tracks, “Kill Me” and “Jungle,” available across various streaming platforms.
