Monetizing music in Nigerian is a chore. Thus, artist-label relationship is anything but smooth. That’s why artists come and go from most Nigerian labels. After the drama involving rapper Davolee and singer, Lyta, another artist has left Olamide’s label, YBNL Nation.
The artist is rapper and social media sensation, Picazo Rhap. About a day ago, he posted the following message on his Twitter page @PicazoRhap, “Thanks for the surpport, platform, I appreciate u endlessly, I thank you deeply.
“#YBNL has been a beautiful part of my journey and I hope you believe me when is say I’ll.never take for granted the blessings you brought me. Baddo!!! #newchapter #PFM.”
You might remember that Picazo was one of several artists that rapper, Olamide Badoo signed to his label, YBNL Nation in 2018. While he had been making freestyle videos for a while before that, his freestyle to Chinko Ekun’s ‘Able God,’ caught Olamide’s attention.
The status of the other social media sensation, Yomi Blaize who was also signed in 2018 is unknown.
During his stint at the label, Picazo Rhap released, ‘Macaroni,’ and was also on the YBNL Mafia Family album released in December 2018.
