Akon contracts with Davido, Psquare not honored in Nigeria


An interview with Akon on The Breakfast Club hosted by DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne tha God, say he relocated to  his home country and later signed some nigeria music star

Futhermore he says contracts in africa doesnt exist then give a hand shake with pictures . Especially Nigerian where its not honoured.

“And me and Davido never had a contract. I was more like a big brother walking him through certain things, learn some things, advice, things like that” he said.

“When I was in Africa, I was building an Afrobeat team.

“When I first went out there in 2008, I signed Davido, PSquare and others. Davido is like my little brother. Did you know, Davido was originally from Atlanta? And started his music career actually in Atlanta and just decided, you know what, ‘It’s too much of a struggle here, let me go back home.’

“He went back home and just popped off like that” (snaps fingers).

Continuing, he said, “P-Square was actually the biggest act as of that time. It was a group of twin brothers. We had a song, ‘Choplife.’

“It was a huge smash. But at the time, Afrobeat wasn’t that big here.

“What I love about Davido is that he is an independent artiste. He came with the US hustle to Africa. So, he completely gets it.”

On if Davido was still signed to his record label, he said, “Nah, nah, He’s doing his own thing now.”
