Peter Okoye’s twin brother has suffered a major loss in his business.
His record label Rudeboy lost two signees early this year and the former PSquare star is not happy about the decision of the artistes named Lucy and Muna to leave his outfit.
Here is what Mr Okoye told the Nation on why the artistes left his record label.
“I am going to be honest with you, let me be the first person that owns a record label that will make such decision. I have two artistes Lucy and Muno. Lucy was in school for a long time and then her parents said they wanted her to finish school and it was taking my time for almost a year and they said they want her to be on her own and I said ok no problem.
Like I always say, my own thing is stronger than any other thing. That’s one thing I understand so they best thing I did was accept and we prepared document to let her move. Also, early this year my male artiste came and said he wants to leave and I said no problem.
“These are signs for me to know that some people don’t have patience. Look at what is going on between artistes and labels now. I don’t think I have time. Trust me, I no get energy. It’s going to be hard for me to sign an artiste now but I can assist or help” .
“If you are lucky one or two songs is enough to blow you but if you are patient you continues until you actually discover yourself. Or you expect me to call people to put you in shows? No! Your music should draw people to call you themselves. For me, signing an artiste is not in my agenda” .
His brother, Peter Okoye on the other hand has been signing major artists since the beginning of the year.
Sources in the know alleged that Paul Okoye’s anger problem is the main reason artistes are leaving his outfit.
People management skill is essential when dealing with artists, a record label owner who can’t manage his artists will lose them by default.
