A High Grade signee and the name behind the “Susuka” hit song is rumoured to have left his record label High Grade Family.
Meanwhile, georgebritton.com cannot confirm the cause of this sudden break-away from his record label but we can confidently say, the Fante Rap God and his record label High-grade Family have some fractures that could not be mended and it led to the rapper not renewing his contract with the record label.
The rapper and singer who last year December hosted the “Made in Taadi” Concert also saw the whole of Takoradi township brought to a standstill with the appearance of over 30 celebrated artiste in Ghana has been at loggerheads with his management team, insider sources reported and this has accounted for him not extending his contract with the record label.
In recent times, many artists have left their record labels after making it big, could this be one of such cases or there could be other reasons which led to the rapper deciding not to renew his contract. Though nerves are calm in both camps over the development, we feel it’s not much of a good news for the record label. We wait to get the full details of the break-up and will inform you as it all unfolds.Also checkout: Medikal to drop new content during the month
Kofi Kinaata is known for numerous hit songs; “Last Show”, “Made In Taadi”, “Confession”, “Susuka” just to mention a few. As he joins the other artistes who have parted ways with their record labels; E.L, Kaakie and Gallaxy we wish him good luck.
This trend begs the question whether the artists get too big for the label or they want to go in a creative direction different from the projection of the label? Or is it more basic than that, is it a case of I’m an asset and reward financially or could it be that there was some tension from the very start? Or is it just the end of a good collaboration.
It cannot be said with certainty the reason behind the break up of artist and label at the moment but upon confirmation, the news will be made known.[via:georgebritton]
