Nigerian singer Barry Jhay who was recently arrested in connection to the death of his label boss Karshy Gordon, has been cleared of the murder charges by the Ghana Police Service.
News broke on Sunday, March 7, 2021 that Karshy Gordon, the boss of CashNation Entertainment committed suicide by jumping from a balcony in Ghana.
According to a report of an investigation carried out by the Ghanaian police, Barry was attacked by Karshy shortly after the record label boss’ girlfriend rushed in to where he was recording a song to report that Karshy was behaving abnormally.
Headies-winning Nigerian artist, Barry Jhay is the frontline artist of the label. Now, Pulse Nigeria has exclusively learned that the singer has been arrested in Ghana in connection to the death of Godson.
Another source tells Pulse Nigeria that, “Barry Jhay and Karshy had a fight in Ghana over accounts and other label-related issues in Ghana. When the argument got heated, Karshy punched Barry Jhay in the mouth.
Barry Jhay confirmed this when he shared a video of his bloodied mouth on social media.
“See the way this guy beat me,” he said in Pidgin English.
“I didn’t do anything, I was recording. I’m done with Kash Nation,” he also said.
Hours after the video emerged, news of Gordon’s death was reported and police believe the incident might be connected to it.
The police report disclosed that Karshy jumped down from the 4th floor of the hotel they lodged in, 12 minutes after Barry who he reportedly attacked with a knife has fled the scene. It was further learnt that an eyewitness and CCTV footage corroborated the claim.

A man named Rina, who is a friend and brother of Karshy Gordon has offered some perspective. On his leaked WhatsApp story. He wrote that, “My brother gave you his Benz worth nine million naira. He gave you his Hublot worth 15 million Naira. You’re dead, Barry Jhay.“
On another slide, he also wrote that, “He was putting on his shoes and some blogs and idiots are saying that he committed suicide. My brother was killed!”
The third slide of his post says that members of a confraternity, to which Barry Jhay belongs killed Godson while another slide claims that the fear of military police made Godson jump.
As at this time, all efforts to reach Barry Jhay’s management has proved abortive.
