“How my former label ‘kidnapped’ me” – Singer, Badboy Timz opens up
Nigerian musician, Badboy Timz has alleged that his former record label, Anonymous Music detained him illegally.
He said that it was not an official arrest but more like a kidnapping because he was made to sleep on the road with policemen who were on night patrol duty.
Badboy Timz made the revelation during an interview on Cool FM as he noted that his ordeal affected the energy his fans had always known him for.
“I got detained illegally, it was more like a kidnap, it was not an arrest because they could not put me in the cell. I had to sleep on the road with policemen that were on patrol.”
He left Anonymous Music in 2021 after having a dispute with the management that led to a court case. Timz founded his own label, Shock Absorbers Music the same year.
Watch the singer speak below:
Edujandon.com recalls that Nigerian street artiste, Akinbiyi Abiola Ahmed, popularly called Bella Shmurda, had a similar experience.
He revealed that he paid a huge sum of money to free himself from the contract he signed with his former record label.
The ‘Newborn Fela’ crooner was formerly signed to One World Global Records.
Bella said he paid N20 million to the management so that he could be released to be an independent artiste after spending just a year out of his 3-year contract.
According to the singer, he was being cheated by the label because they equally funded his music projects, but One World took a larger percentage of the earnings.
Speaking on Tea with Taymesan podcast, he explained that he would source for N500k as requested by the label and they in turn would bring N500k for production, promotion and other things that need funding.
However, when money starts coming from shows, streaming, endorsement and other areas, they would take 70 percent and give him 30 percent.
Bella said he was not comfortable with that arrangement so he hired a lawyer and bought himself out of One World Global Records.
