Nigeria’s continental superstar Afro Hip hop duo, Psquare and brother, Jude Okoye, in an interview with BBC London, spoke on the issue between the label they own and Akinmayokun Awodumila, popularly known as May D.
Psquare was in London to perform at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo, London for the Love Afrobeat Festival, visited BBC Africa’s studios, ahead of the concert.
According to reports, the duo was responding to questions sent through Facebook, Twitter and Google+ CEO, Northside Ent. Ltd/Square Records, Jude Okoye said, “We did not sack May D. We just let him go.”
Last week, Square Records released a press statement announcing the end of their business relationship with the only other artist on their label, Mr May D. According to the statement, the split was due to the irreconcilable differences between the two parties.
Reacting to the statement, May D said “I do not know what they are talking about.”
May D was signed by the label some months ago and has released few hit tracks under the label including ‘Ile Ijo’, ‘Soundtrack’, and the remix he did with Akon and Psquare.
