The Real Reason Chidinma Left Capital Music
After critics queried singer Chidinma's unceremonious exit from former record label, Capital Records, label co-owner Illbliss has opened up on her exit in a new interview.
Ill Bliss stated that it was the decision of the record company not to renew Chidinma’s contract when it expired.
The rapper said, “Chidinma didn’t just wake up one morning and leave the record label. Didn’t you guys see that the relationship degenerated? Her contract expired with Capital Hill and we did not want to renew it. We are the record company; so, we decide what to do with an artiste we create.”
He said Capital Hill Records, from when the label started, has no plans to keep an artiste signed to the label for a long time.
“From the start, Clarence Peters and I didn’t plan to keep artistes for too long. Phyno stayed for a year too. There is always a problem when you start to keep an artiste for too long because you want to recoup all the money you invested in him or her and make a huge profit too.
"We made some good money from these artistes; we made enough money to break even and cover all our expenses,” he said.
The label which currently has just Mz Kiss and Ill Bliss on its roaster, revealed that after Chidinma’s seven year contract expired, they believed she needed to build her own team.
“Chidnma knows where to find us and she knows we will always help her if she needs our help. We only have me and Mz Kiss on the label at the moment,” Ill Bliss added.
