Windhoek — After all the beef, hatred, and misunderstanding, Blacksheep and The Dogg have finally found peace.

Blacksheep says he has reconciled with The Dogg and it can only be better between the two of them, and the industry. "I cannot really give details, as to what words were exchanged, because that is in the past now. I'm concentrating on what lies ahead of me," says Blacksheep.

"Most people thought this was a GMP and Omshasho thing, but when you are ignorant, you tend to believe that you can fly, because you do not consider many things. The issue the two of us had was purely personal. We were very good friends before all this happen, and maybe he did not like the fact that I had signed for his rival in the shape of Gazza. Nevertheless, friends do not forsake others because of the decisions they make, you stand by them, until they eventually realise what they have done wrong or right. I have many Mshasho friends, so I do not see how the relationship with The Dogg is any different. I respect each person's decision but respect is to be earned not forced upon, and I just like everyone else, I am only human."

Blacksheep adds that they have been depriving themselves of doing good music, because of indifferences. Secondly, The Dogg and Blacksheep are linked with the same people directly and indirectly. "So personally I think it's pretty selfish to give people loyalty ultimatums. Many people wanted this peacemaking to happen, and they just got their wish. Thirdly, I did this for myself. I want a healthy, clean conscious and it has to start with me."

The Dogg confirms that every thing Blacksheep said was all-true. Blacksheep says that that he is now concentrating on his future and 2012 is a busy year for him since he is working on his album, balancing this with his 5-8 job whih is not an easy act. He is planning to release his second album this year. "So I m not crying much, I m not losing any sleep, because with God, everything is possible and everything has its time and my fans will receive a single before the album come out very soon," he says.

"I want to thank everybody that has made it easier for Blacksheep to slip into this industry comfortably. GMP had a lot to do with this. Gazza and Zox, played a big role. Streetkidz and D-Jay played their part, and so did Fredro. My fans and friends are the biggest winners, because they stood by me every step of the way and I will be forever grateful to them. I' m planning bigger things this year, so we can only pray and hope that all goes well."
