Tinny Entertainment artiste, Ycee recently put an individual believed to be an executive of Sony Music, on blast. The rapper tweeted degrading words at the man named Michael Ugwu, supposedly at the helm of operations for Sony Music Africa.
Ycee who signed a deal with the international company in 2016, accused the company of milking artistes and his tweets suggests that he sees the “Sony Deal” as a greek gift. From his posts, it is clear that Ycee feels cheated by Sony Music and he accused them of “raping” their signed acts.
The rapper’s dissatisfaction and criticism of Sony Music is similar to the claims of Davido, when he publicly criticized the company and its management. Before now, the “Sony Deal” was considered as a prop towards achieving the goal of globalizing the African sound but with the claims of Ycee and Davido, it seems there is more to it than meets the eye.
Popular Nigerian singer-songwriter, musician, entrepreneur and TV host, Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, known by his stage name D’banj never shies away from speaking his mind and this time, the Confidential singer has finally addressed the endless criticisms from people who are no longer impressed with his music.
Drama started earlier today when D’banj revealed that his latest music video, King Don Come, has gotten one million viewson Youtube. While some of his fans did not think it was a remarkable achievement, otherstold the singerto stepaway from the spotlight. Their reason? That his time is over.
“Sign an artist who is ready to take over the world, and be a godfather. That will pay more,” one man enthused, adding, “Because you have passed [this] level. It is not really a good thing.”
The commentary deeply upset D’banj because he went on a long rant, dragging the commenter, and dismissing all the criticisms about his music. He also bragging about his company ‘The C.R.E.A.M Platform’, a sublet of his label D’ Cream Records, which he had said is worth $100million.
“You clearly have NO idea what i am about, what @creamplatform and my movement are about, yet you feel the need to air an unsolicited opinion,” he began. “Educate yourself with facts before you stray to my page and exhibit your pile ineptitude…YOU ARE SAYING ‘TRASH’!!!”
This is not the first time he would fight with folks on social media. In June, he alleged that it was Don Jazzywho was paying folks to troll him on social media. Now, he is going one-on-one with trolls.
