Skales, whose real name is Raoul John Njeng-Njen has left Empire Mates Entertainment after the expiration of his contract.
Unlike the squabbles that had ensued with several artistes before, during or after leaving their label, Skales had exited E.M.E as quietly as a shadow.
As at the time of this report, he has removed E.M.E badges and signatures from all of his social media pages and handles except for his Twitter wallpaper which still carries the old label.
He plans to move on with his own music label M.et.al and has re-directed all booking enquiries to new numbers and email addresses.
Sources say the contract with Skales was not renewed because the label had not been able to recoup investments made on him.
Wizkid and Skales were signed on in 2010 with Wizkid moving on to becoming an internationally selling sensation. Skales rippled through briefly with his first single ‘Komole’ which he released in 2012.
Then, there was the endless talk of an album he was working on, but that never fell through. Skales having waited for four years, had equally agreed that it was time to move on.
