Mountain Black said, “Yes, he was neglected (by the music industry). We became popular in 2003, and we had been managing ourselves since then. I believe that with God, all things are possible. We believed in ourselves, and that is why we were still relevant in the industry till now. The industry is very wide; you can fix yourself anywhere and make your money. We were, also, both involved in the transportation business.”

Mad Melon went on to speak on Mountain Black’s ailment saying he was in fact not around when his colleague fell ill. He continued saying he was only made aware of Mountain Black’s ailment by a relative and by the time he got there, his colleague had passed on.
