Gold-selling reggae artiste Gyptian has abandoned a popular major label citing that the label is holding back the progress of his career.
“We had a four-album deal contract. I did three albums, and then I realised that they released a compilation without telling me about, so that amounts to four albums. I did my time with them. Manners and respect, we will go our separate ways. I feel like they have been benching my career because they take long to release your projects,” reportedly stated Gyptain.
According To The Jamaican Star, following his success with Hold You which climbed the Billboard Chart, Gyptain says several international artistes wanted to collaborate with him for projects. However, they were not prepared to collaborate with an artiste who was signed to the label in question.
“Watch and see now. The minute the overseas artistes realise that I am not with them, they will be coming on board to collaborate with me. I also want labels to know that I am not opposed to signing again. However, I want to sign with a label that cares about my brand and will put me as priority,” he said.
“I just want dem to leave mi things and guh dem ways. Big up to Johnny Wonder for the success of Hold You … that had nothing to do with it; they only benefit from Gyptain,” he said.
