Nigerian rapper cum singer Skales, recently revealed the reason he left Eme for Baseline Records, where he is expecting to drop his album. The singer’s contract with EME was not renewed, which forced him out of the label. The artiste said he still maintains a good relationship with the label because his exit was a mutual agreement.
Speaking on a radio show on Tuesday, July 29, 2014, Skales said he believes in doing things by himself. “I just believe in doing things myself, I have big dreams, and there are things I want to do, and people don’t understand me, but as time goes on, they will get used to it. I am one of the few people that believe success is the best revenge, I am not ready for any beef, I think I have grown,” he said.
Commenting further, he said part of the things he did not like was the working differences. “This is the way I want to go and they say this is the way they want me to go and that’s not me, it can’t work. That’s part of the reasons though, there is always two stories to everything. I am just saying how I feel; I don’t want to go deeper than this, before I offend anybody,” Skales further said.
According to the artiste, his new record label, Baseline, was willing to make him bigger and had big plans for him, which made him joined the company.
He said the music outfit is now giving back to his fans by giving out $10,000.
“We are giving out $10,000 to any fan who uploads a video, dancing to ‘Shake Body’ (his new single) and the fan with the highest views and like gets the money,” Skales noted, while sending “a big shout out to Baseline for making this possible.”
