Months after rapper and ‘Juice’ singer Ycee and Sony Music Africa boss, Michael Ugwu let us in on the disagreement between both parties on Twitter, Tinny Entertainment has now announced end of the deal that bound them.
Ycee had signed a distribution deal with Sony Music Africa in October 2016 but the relationship went sour when the singer took to Twitter to accuse the label of milking and raping artistes.
In a statement released by Tinny Entertainment over the weekend, the label revealed that they have terminated the contract with Sony.
Tinny Entertainment signed a license and distribution deal with Sony Africa for the distribution of some of YCEE’s music globally, in the hope that SONY AFRICA would take their music to the next level.
“We would like to state officially that we terminated our contract with SONY through our lawyers, Olaniwun Ajayi LP, by a letter dated 5 December 2017.
Henceforth, we are the sole owners of the copyright in any and all of our music and can exploit our music on any and every platform.
We have realized that it is best to undertake the distribution of our records by ourselves, as a Record Label and that Made in Nigeria across board, is the only way to be above board.”
As a Label, we are pushing out great music this year starting with “Say Bye Bye,” “I Wish” and our YCEE and Bella Collabo EP, “Late Night Vibrations.”
We thank you for the love!
