Tinny Entertainment dropped an official statement on their website on 3rd of February, stating that they have terminated the deal on the grounds that the Sony deal is not beneficial to them as promised.
Here is the statement ;
“We would like to state officially that we terminated our contract with SONY through our lawyers, Olaniwun Ajayi LP, by a letter dated 5 December 2017.
Henceforth, we are the sole owners of the copyright in any and all of our music and can exploit our music on any and every platform.
We have realized that it is best to undertake the distribution of our records by ourselves, as a Record Label and that Made in Nigeria across board, is the only way to be above board.”
Some of Ycee’s popular songs include “something light” and ” don’t need Bae”
