Kenyan afropop band H_art the band are set to establish their own music label which will take over Penya Africa music label.
The band has been signed up to Penya Africa for the last three years.
Taking to social media last Friday to make the announcement, they revealed that the acquisition was as a result of a misunderstanding with the label over delayed release dates of their songs.
“Recently, we got into a big scuffle with our label about holding back our releases & our legal teams have been on the table trying to resolve it. After weeks of back & forth we realized how far we have come together & decided to put our egos aside .Truth is Penya Africa / Sauti academy has played a huge part in shaping us into this brand we carry today,” the post reads in part.
“Long story short we are working on a transition of turning Penya Africa into our very own label- H_art the Brand’s Label.Together with Our manager, our team & Board we will nurture young talents into big brands that they so wish to become.”
The band will be conducting an open day this week with the Kenyan music industry players to work out a plan.
“We will be having an open day with the creme dela creme of the music industry next week at our new offices to work out a massive plan .keep it #teamH_art & lets create a viable music industry,” wrote the band.
