Nigerian singer Skales has revealed that he did not sign any paperwork during his time at Empire Mates Entertainment (EME) records for about two years after his deal was done.
In an interview with Echoo Room, the singer said that even though there was no paperwork, there was an understanding and an agreement between him and the label.
Skales said he needed a different journey and wanted to be in charge and in control of his music career.
The singer was with EME for about four to five years before they officially went their separate ways.
He explained that after four or five years, he needed a different journey, and Banky W, the label's founder, supported him in his decision to leave and pursue his own path.
“When the deal was done, everybody just had to go their way.
“I needed a different journey and Banky actually wanted me to have a different journey. I wanted to be in charge, be in control.
“We actually didn’t sign paperwork while we were in EME till like two years after but we had an understanding, an agreement.
“We were still following the agreement till we did the paperwork after like two years,” Skales said.
Skales exited the record label in February 2014 after his contract expired.
It was revealed that EME’s decision not to renew Skales’ contract was based on the fact that the label wasn’t getting returns on the investment they made in him.
