Cynthia Morgan has opened up on her travail after an issue she had with the CEO of her former record label ‘Northside Records’, Jude Okoye.
In an Instalive chat with former Miss Globe Nigeria, Cassandra, the dancehall star recalled losing her stage name “Cynthia Morgan”, her VEVO account, royalties, Instagram account and other things due to the contract she signed and the record label issue she had with the music executive.
According to the singer, she had dirts on Jude Okoye and would have won if she pushed further, but she decided at that time that it wasn’t necessary.
She however became depressed thereafter and had to relocate to Benin to save cost for treatment of an illness that almost took her life.
On why she didn’t open up at that time, Cynthia Morgan who now goes with the name “Madrina” said wasn’t ready to talk as she believed it was a phase of life she would surmount. She also admitted that some of colleagues in the music industry reached out to her, but she didn’t say anything because it was all centered on work which she wasn’t ready to get back to then.
The singer who disclosed that she doesn’t want to sign under a label anymore, said she is now open to partnership and hoping to stage a comeback.
A GoFundMe account has been launched by her fans who expressed sympathy over “all she went through” with the hashtag #BringBackCynthinaMorgan.
Davido’s brother and Chairman of HKN Music Group. Adewale Adeleke who also reacted to Cynthia Morgan’s disclosure, stated that fans are so quick to blame labels or managers for ruining careers of artistes even when they (artistes) sometimes bring their own downfall. He added that when artistes make it, they claim it is by their own doing.
Fans be so quick to blame labels or managers for ruining artist careers but when the artist make it, its by their own doing…..doesn’t add up!!!!
Think about it when artist are successful nobody credits the label, or Managers for money or time spent pushing the artist it’s the artist, But let an artist be relevant & go down its the label. The label is greedy the label took all my royalties they left me for dead….
I’m not saying some labels can take artist for a ride and give out horrible contracts. Everyone should remember these artist signed contracts willingly, but some times its the artist themselves that bring their own downfall, no one else!
