Ignore Yasmin’s Preposterous Claims – King Promise

Fast rising Ghanaian Afro-pop artiste, King Promise has denied claims by Yasmin Benhzadi,

that she spent $150,000 to develop the talent of the young artiste.

Yasmin Benhzadi is a Dubai-based businesswoman who is claiming King Promise is

now being ungrateful to her despite all her help to bring him this far.

Yasmin further accused the budding musician of neglecting her after he became successful.

She further described the singer as “ungrateful” and has threatened to sue him.

“After signing him and helping change his name from Boy P to King Promise,

I set up YB Records to help push King Promise’s music, spent in excess of $150,000 on high budget music video shoots in Dubai, traveling expenses,

luxury cars, Hollywood producers and promotions.” She said in an interview with Accra-based Hitz FM.

Reacting to a report sighted on  by, King Promise has reacted to the allegations.


According to the reports which according to the site was made exclusively available to them

by King Promise through his management, Ghanaians should ignore Yasmin’s claims.

 “Yasmin’s claims of spending $150,000 was due to her own unilateral decisions and

luxurious lifestyles; even if she, indeed, has spent that much, Yasmin gave up along

the line when her financial expectations were not being met, to the extent of calling

King Promise ‘a waste product”.

“It was at this point that Killbeatz signed King Promise onto his Legacy Life

Entertainment Label and started everything afresh, Killbeatz enlightened King

Promise about the music business and supported him into releasing all his hit

songs till date, these include ‘Double Trouble’, ‘Oh Yeah’, ‘Hey Sexy’ and ‘Selfish,” the statement explained.

“It is instructive to note that Yasmin has not invested a dime in any of King

Promise’s recent projects (songs) and, so, her claim of spending $150,000 is

preposterous and smacks of an individual with the intent to reap what she has

not sown,” the statement added.

King Promise however noted that he is forever grateful for what Yasmin did for him in his

early days of experimenting with music and still sees her as a big sister.
