Nigerian singer and former YBNL signed artiste, Lil Kesh who upon his contract expiration with the Olamide owned record label went on to float his own record label, YAGI, has revealed that he has made more from being an independent record label owner.
The YAGI – Young And Getting It boss, in an interview stated that he has made more for himself and his music career since leaving YBNL.
Lil Kesh in the interview said: “I was not scared when I took the step to leave Olamide’s record label”, he said. “I am never scared; I just knew it was the right move, so I was never scared. So far, I think the steps have helped me more as a person and as a brand. For one, I am a better person mentally and right now, I am not an instrument for the growth of someone’s business. Instead, I am instrumental to my own growth”.
He further added when speaking of his finances, “Looking at the financial side as well, it was a good step. I cannot say I would reap what I have sown immediately, but every move I make now is to ensure I have a brighter future. I am doing all this for the future. When I announced that I left Olamide’s record label, some people were skeptical, but I proved them wrong by releasing hit songs. To me, there was no option of failure; it was a win-win situation. That was my strength and my fans have been so amazing in motivating me. Thanks to my fans. With little effort, the results have always been amazing”.
He added; “Life as a label owner compared to when I was under a record label is good, but I have more responsibilities now. Life is a bit tougher now because of the responsibilities; it depicts growth and leaving YBNL was a very big step in my life”.
