Two top recording labels bosses have denied there's beef between them.
Grand Pa Records CEO Refigah and Candy and Candy Records CEO Joe Kariuki last Saturday revealed that no difference exists between them.
The two met for the first time at the Coast Car Park during the Coast Music Awards ceremony sponsored by Mombasa event organiser Julia Achieng, popularly known as Beyonce.
Kariuki, who was among the sponsors of the event, said he is not into 'cheap competition' with any other recording labels in the country.
"It's true this is the first time we have come face-to-face with Rafigah, but my sponsorship is not all about wealth; it's about showing support to young stars," Kariuki said on phone.
Refigah said he doesn't have any personal differences with Kariuki.
"People should stop the rumours and realise that Grand Pa is the new biggest recording label in the country," he said.
Those feted during the event include Bahati (Gospel Male Artiste of the Year), Anastasia Mukabwa (Gospel Female Artiste of the Year) and Willy Paul (Gospel Song of the Year for Lala Salama).
Ali B was named Afro-fusion Artiste of the Year, Kaa La Moto won Hip hop Artiste of the Year and newcomer Brown walked away with the Chipukizi Artiste of the Year title.
Others feted were Elkana Jacob of the Star Newspaper who was voted the best investigative photojournalist of the year while DJ gates of Pwani FM emerged top in the Radio Show of the Year category.
KTN's Ali Manzu and Mohamed Ali were voted best male news anchor and investigative journalist of the year respectively.
