- No contract
Lyta’s departure from Olamide’s YBNL follows the long list of Nigerian music acts quitting their record label in a controversial way. Though both parties have confirmed that there was no contractual agreement binding Lyta as an artist with YBNL, his departure from the label does not appear interesting to both parties involved2
Another point in the separation between Olamide and Lyta is the reason Lyta left. There are insinuations that Lyta started making moves to quit the record label for a greener pasture. Again, Olamide said Lyta told him he has someone who wants to sign him and requested to leave the label. The YBNL rapper said, he, however, gave Lyta his blessings
Olamide explains that there is an official plan for every music act on YBNL but Lyta was unready to follow through having enjoyed fame in 2018. The rapper says every label with 2 or more artistes has a calendar that is followed in order to push the various artists for equality sake but Lyta seems uncomfortable with the plan.
4.Fireboy DML’s Success
Another point raised by Olamide on why he parted ways with Lyta was Fireboy‘s massive success after the release of his debut single, ‘Jealousy’. The record label executive says Fireboy’s current success might have not gone down well with Lyta
5.No Negative vibe
Olamide acknowledged that he unfollowed Lyta on Instagram to avoid negative vibes around him. In his words, “If you know me too well, you will know I don’t want negative energy or bad vibes around me. Bad energy or pity face affects me badly and I can’t help but scrutinize my page to avoid any issue.
