It was almost a wild drama at the just concluded Nokia Don't Break The Beat competition which ex-beauty queen, Munachi Abbi hosted.

DJ Jimmy Jatt, Mode 9 were part of the judges on the show.

Trouble nearly started when as one of the judges, Mode 9 chose a contestant as the winner of the competition in his capacity as the competition's judge over others but Muna, who was just the anchor, disagreed with his choice.

She told Mode 9 that his choice of winner was wrong that her own choice should be the rightful winner.

Though she was told as a presenter, she has no input on the choice of winners, but she told Mode 9 to hand over the microphone to her when Mode 9 didn't dance to her tune.

This got Mode 9 angry but he handled the matter with maturity.

This act by up and coming rapper, Muna has been greeted with controversies.

Some have question her right to challenge the authority of an icon in the field. Others believe she crossed her line as a presenter in interfering in the decisions of the judges.

Some players in the game have lashed out on Muna saying it was wrong for her as a starter in the game to question Mode 9's decision in the competition.

Muna is still struggling to get a stand in the rap business which Mode 9 is already an icon in. He has consistently won Best Lyricist at the Headies (formerly HipHop World Awards).

Some believe that Muna did what she did on the show to create a buzz around her, which she has been getting since the video went online.
