Singer, Brymo, has revealed he was never paid for his part in Oleku, a song owned by former label mate, Ice Prince.

The ‘Alajo Somolu‘ crooner, who spoke with Sahara TV, said he was never paid by his then label, Chocolate City for the song.

He said:

“Remember Oleku right? I got no award for it. I was a fool, there was no contract”.

Speaking further, he said, as at that time, he was so broke, he basically lived off M.I another ex-label mae, who happens to be the president of Chocolate City now.

“Oleku was a pro-bono work for Chocolate City. I felt maybe because I didn’t have a contract and I was new, it was my trial period. So I signed a contract in April 2011 but nothing changed. The label didn’t provide money for upfront project recordings.

“But there’s always a way out of that. There are other musicians on the label. MI was the first to blow up and he had gotten a place. In that period, I was always at MI’s place.”

“In the case of the record label, the contract and the court injunction, it’s a show of shame. People will always smile at you when you do what they want. I was not in court when the injunction was given. If that’s how it is done in law, then we should scrap the entire constitution.

“Fortunately, it didn’t last very long. Eventually they removed it. Their aim was to prevent me from putting out my ‘Merchant, Dealers and Slaves’ album.

“Nobody will like it if I go back to Chocolate City. Certain things can never be really mended. You just have to go your separate ways. I’ve had more peace in the last few years”.
