Nigerian singer, Idowest fumes as he criticizes his former label boss, Dammy Krane, accusing him of not being supportive of his career during their time together.
This comes amidst the back-and-forth going on between Dammy Krane and Davido over alleged unpaid debt. In a post via the X platform, Dammy mentioned Idowest being hijacked from him by Davido.
“Let’s not forget @davido you took Idowest from my record label, I didn’t talk because I saw you as a brother, neither did I drag the artiste( cos I had done my part to help him). Genuinely I want to know why you don’t want to pay me for a song you tweeted that I wrote after all,” he wrote.
In a viral video, Idowest expressed frustration over the lack of financial assistance and accommodation while he was signed under Dammy Krane’s label.
This led him to eventually part ways with the label and sign with a new label owned by Davido at the time.
In his words, “What did I gain? Dammy Krane, no whine me. You dey post me dey mention my name for blog? You dey mad? Wetin I gain, both from the stealer (Davido) and the signer (Dammy Krane). I was making music by myself; you singed me and gave me nothing, not even an accommodation. Don’t piss me off.”
The video has ignited discussions within the music industry, with many fans and followers sharing their opinions on the matter.
The situation has also brought attention to the responsibilities and obligations of record labels toward their signed artists.
