Secular turned gospel turned ‘secular again’ artiste, DNA quit Grandpa records a few weeks ago. Word had it that the ‘Ruka’ hit maker was headed for Candy ‘n’ Candy records.
However, speaking to the Star, the rapper squashed the rumors saying “if I was to be in a label owned by another person, it could only have been Grandpa Records.”
He categorically stated that his departure from GrandPa Records was a personal decision after his two-year contract expired and he opted out in pursuit of other interests putting to rest the claims that he left camp ‘due to ‘irrevocable differences.
“Being at the label since 2012, I felt it was time to find more space for myself. Sometimes it gets hard when you do things as a team and then it comes to a point you just feel you want to handle things as an individual. At Grandpa, I only had one solo single as the rest of my other hits were a team effort in form of collabos. I now want to grow my personal brand to become a continental name and I will be doing that with my own label which I will set up soon after I release my upcoming new single. I also want more time with my family and I felt I could only do so if I devoted more time to myself. As my stage moniker suggests, I am always driven by dreams and ambitions. I am an ambitious young chap and it was in my personal interest not to renew my contract at Grandpa. It was a mutual consent between us and we did not argue over it. We (Refigah and myself) are great friends and he understood my decision to leave. In fact, we were to do a joint press conference but that part was overtaken by events,” he said.
