Ghanaian rapper, Desmond Blackmore, known in showbiz as D-Black, has said that Freda Rhymes, Wisa Greid, Kobla Jnr and Dahlin Gage were responsible for their early exit from his record label.
According to the Vera hitmaker, contrary to the false speculations in the media that he lacked managerial skills, the former Signees were impatient for gradual progress.
“They did not have the patience to wait to become stars. They wanted to be known quickly but my label and I wanted them to grow organically because that is what I believed and still believe in.
“What people don’t know is that the best thing in this industry is to go at a pace where you can never be forgotten in years to come.
“When you grow organically, you last long in the game and you learn all that there is to learn and it gives you the strength to stand the test of time when the dry season comes,” he said.
Black Avenue Muzik, it will be recalled, terminated their contractual dealings with the four musicians in June this year.
Although the record label, owned by D-Black, signed the young talents with the aim of helping to market their talents, their journey with the label came to an end just after a few months.
D Black said the artistes could have renewed the deal but they chose to go their separate ways. He, however, admitted that if the label had signed on a lesser number of artistes, things might have been different.
D-Black also said he did not believe the exit of the artistes meant he had failed. “I have not failed, neither has the label; rather, a lot of lessons have been learnt. They did their best and we also did our part and that is it. There is no bitterness whatsoever,” he stated.
