Nigerian rapper, Ycee has referred to as out the proprietor of his former report label, Tinny Leisure for refusing to acknowledge or pay his artists each previous and current, even after regularly producing funds from their work.
That is coming after Tinny Leisure celebrated a milestone of 100 million streams on varied music platforms.
Ycee earlier introduced his exit from Tinny leisure after floating his personal report label “ANTB” at the start of the 12 months.
Earlier than I begin I might first wish to apologize to everybody of you all that I maintain in excessive regard as a result of I’ve tried my potential greatest to not let my social media be used as a degree of negativity or battle however I’ve been left with no alternative
So the CEO of TINNY ENTERTAINMENT took to his Instagram web page yesterday to indicate gratitude for 100million plus streams (throughout all platforms) and this was delivered to my consideration which left me confused as a result of the put up as seen above was accompanied with the caption “Grateful” and the deal with of the label and no point out of the artistes whose content material generated these streams.
LET IT BE KNOWN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC THAT NOT A SINGLE DIME GENERATED FROM THOSE STREAMS GOT INTO THE POCKET OF ANY OF THE ARTISTES RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONTENT THAT GENERATED THOSE STREAMS AND TO ALL THAT HAVE MADE CONGRATULATORY COMMENTS ON THE POST, THE ONLY THING THE CEO IS GRATEFUL FOR IS THE FACT THAT HE HAS YET AGAIN, SEEMINGLY GOTTEN AWAY WITH PROFITING OFF OF OTHER PEOPLES SWEAT (like he has been well-known to take action many occasions prior to now)
I’ve been silent as I’ve quietly been targeted on rebuilding my life and profession and likewise out of respect to my earlier employer however he in flip has not accorded me that very same respect.
Actions starting from assaults on my repute by spreading falsities about me, saying I betrayed him by leaving his label (understanding absolutely nicely the phrases on which our enterprise relationship ended) to leaking my music which he completely has zero rights to launch however sadly occurs to own so as to delay and destabilize my debut album launch.
Earlier than anybody asks why I’m doing this, it’s merely to guard some other artistes from struggling the identical destiny and falling into the fingers of this manipulative and delusional human being.
I’ve spent essentially the most a part of the final 24hours on set taking pictures the primary single off my album and I’m going to get some relaxation at this juncture so no one ought to name my cellphone
Like I mentioned I solely got here out now to save lots of different upcoming abilities from falling sufferer to this man. Cos Lord is aware of if I had voiced out earlier … Bella Alubo, Dapo Tuburna And Damilare would haven’t skilled all they did in that Label
