In May 2016, Wizkid called out Mr Eazi at a show and officially announced and welcomed him as a Starboy Records artiste. It was a stepping stone for Mr Eazi being a break through year for him.
But to our surprises in 2017 Mr Eazi came out and said he was never really signed under Starboy.
He also said Wizkid told him he has no intention of making money off him and Wizkid only wanted to work as family.
The question is why will Wizkid call Mr Eazi his artiste without any form of contract?…In Rudeboy”s voice ” Na audio “.😄😄😄

Peruzzi caught many people’s eyes when he featured Davido on For Your Pocket Remix.
He later went on to write multiple songs for Davido and in November 2017 he was annouced as an artiste signed under Davido‘s DMW records.
The information was backed with pictures which circulated online to confirm the signing.
And later early this month we got to know Peruzzi was never signed under DMW after Peruzzi’s former boss King Patrick came out to reveal to us that Peruzzi has an existing contract with his label Golden Boy Entertainment.
This prompted Davido to deny signing Peruzzi in the first place and what was showned and announced then was an audio signing.

Things later got messy between Olamide and Lyta prompting Lyta to leave the label.
But the most shocking secret that was revealed was Lyta never being signed under YBNL.
Lyta later confirmed in an interview with Naijaloaded that he never signed a written contract with Olamide or YBNL and Olamide only picked him up to help him with no contract.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right!
