Tinny Entertainment Terminates Ycee’s Distribution Deal With Sony Music Africa
After several months of embarrassing social media exchanges, Tinny Entertainment; home of Nigerian rapper Ycee has finally released an official statement on the rappers unending fiasco with Michael Ugwu; Head of Sony Music Africa.
Tinny Entertainment had penned a deal with Sony Music Africa in October 2016, but about a year later, Ycee went on twitter blow-outs, calling out the organization and it’s executive for allegedly milking out his proceeds and exploiting his career.
He further stated that SONY tried to ruin his career but he survived only because he had a backup plan.
Read what Ycee posted on Twitter below:-
In a statement released on their website, Tinny Entertainment revealed that the deal was terminated in December and they now have sole right to all materials by Ycee.
The statement reads:-
We would like to state officially that we terminated our contract with SONY through our lawyers, Olaniwun Ajayi LP, by a letter dated 5 December 2017.
Henceforth, we are the sole owners of the copyright in any and all of our music and can exploit our music on any and every platform.
We have realized that it is best to undertake the distribution of our records by ourselves, as a Record Label and that Made in Nigeria across board, is the only way to be above board.”
As a Label, we are pushing out great music this year starting with “Say Bye Bye,” “I Wish” and our YCEE and Bella Collabo EP, “Late Night Vibrations.”
We thank you for the love!
