Dancehall artiste Kaakie has parted ways with her label, Xtra Large Music after six years of being under their management, YEN.com.gh has gathered.
The ‘Obolobolo’ hitmaker in a recent interview disclosed that her contract stipulated she did not own her songs and could lose them if she decided to leave the label.
Not long after she announced her exit from the label, her social media accounts with the exception of the Instagram account were suspended.
According to blogger Nydjlive, the songstress finally opened up about the reasons for her decision.
“I signed a contract and there are clauses in the contract and a lot of them are not favorable to me so if at the end of the six years with these clauses I’m still not where I want to be, I think I need to advice myself. And it was very simple for me. I was 20 when I signed the contract. I was from Stars of the Future. Charterhouse took me there. If the clauses were not good then, I want to believe the person who took me there wouldn’t have and I know the person wanted the best for me,” she said.
Speaking on Accra-based Okay FM, Kaakie while explaining the situation indicated she had no ill-feelings towards the label, and refused to disclose any other details aside her main reasons.
Kaakie said the matter was delicate, but she would not bad-mouth the company as she still respected them and an agreement was reached before her exit.
There have been some rumors circulating that the dancehall songstress is looking to be picked up by Zylofon Media, however Kaakie has debunked these reports, stating if any new developments emerge she will inform her fans.
