What seems to have become a trend in the Nigerian music industry is artistes falling apart with their record labels. The last 12 months have recorded such occurrences, one of the most popular was between Wizkid and Banky W, the EME boss.
This time, it is between, Chuddy K and Wale Kuku of SQN. Reacting to the allegation of leaving the label illegally, the publicist to “gaga crazy” crooner, Emmanuel Abba, said that there was a breach of contract between Chuddy K and SQN and as a result, they have to terminate the contract through their lawyer.
“The contract was signed without the consent of Chuddy K’s lawyer and the label since then, has not been keeping to the terms of the agreement. They are not paying him well, they are owing him up to four shows now. As far as I am concern, there was a breach of contract and as a result, the contract has been terminated.
Chuddy K is in South Africa now celebrating with D’Banj on his birthday,” he said.
Responding, Wale Kuku, SQN boss said that the label is not owing the singer any dime and that nobody has the right to do any business with Chuddy K except through him.
“That’s very impossible, because we are very thorough, principled and professional. Till date, we don’t owe Chuddy K a dime, he can’t possibly confront the record label with such a statement” Wale said. The latest gist is that Chuddy K has moved on with his own label called, “Kent records” just like Wizkid did.
