In an exclusive interview with our writer, Mustapha confirmed that the video is authentic and he had fallen on hard times and opted to take up construction jobs.
The rapper told this writer that it is not a music video as is alleged.
"When you are working there are alot of issues, kunakuwanga na beef pia na stori mingi kwa mjengo, so maybe labda kuna mtu alileak,"..

"After that information nimeshindwa hata kutembea, kwani huwezi jitafutia, sasa itakuwa aje? Na siko vizuri ivo, mambo ni ngumu bana" he said .
"There is something I was doing I can't talk a lot about it, but ni shughuli nimekuwa nikifanya for the past one year "
