The singer, who has kept a relatively low profile in recent years, recently attacked critics who he said accused him of being a "victim of mind-control", since his 2001 debut album.

"Since 2001, I have been accused of being part of a conspiracy in which I knowingly entered into a contract with creative directors called Steev Mike, who proceeded to invent a new identity for me to perform under," he said.

"I'm here to say this is simply not true and a gross exaggeration of easily explainable and common-place music industry practices."
