Raoul John Njeng-Njeng  whose stage name is Skales has parted ways with Empire Mates Entertainment (EME) records.

scalesThe ‘Mukulu’ crooner’s contract with the label expired recently. But the label’s management refused to renew the contract.

Banky W,  the  Co–founder of EME is said to have confirmed the development. Those in the know revealed that EME’s decision not to renew Skales’  contract was based on the fact that the label wasn’t getting  return on investment they made on him.

The talented rapper has deleted anything that has to do with EME from his Twitter account as well as facebook page.

At the moment, he has a new management  deal with Entertainment, an artiste and talent management company working with the likes of Dammy Krane, Kel  among others.

Industry  bigwigs, however,  have been reacting to  Skales’ exit from EME. Reacting to the development, Uduak oduok,  lawyer  and creator of  Africa Music Law blog said, “EME confirms that they have dropped him from their label, and also have the audacity to couch it as some sort of bad investment with no real return on investment.

EME has a right to do what it deems fit with its business practices including, deciding who goes and who stays. In fact, Skales is no saint and we saw that in recent times.

If EME refuses to renew Skales’ contract, that is fine. EME should, however, spare us with the “profitable venture” language.”
