Skiibii Mayana has spoken out on his life before and after leaving Five Star Music label – He revealed that he was never paid peanuts while signed under the record label – According to him, life is better for him financially now that he is on his own.
Nigerian singer popularly known as Skiibii has finally spoken about his exit from Five Star Music record label. In a recent interview with Sunday Scoop, he revealed that things are so much better for him since he left the label. He stated that while in the record label which is owned by E-Money who is the younger brother to the singer, Kcee, he was always broke and the percentage which was paid to him after every show was barely enough to take care of himself or his family. He said, “I am hundred percent a better person since I left Five Star Music. When I was at Five Star, I didn’t think I could shoot a video on my own. But it is a different story now. Apart from music, I can do a lot of things on my own. Now, I can take care of my family and pay salaries. When I was with Five Star, I didn’t always have money; I was a boy. If I went to a show, we would share the money and my percentage couldn’t take care of my responsibilities.
Skiibii who hasn’t really been felt on the music scene in 2018, revealed he has been occupied with other businesses but has plans to release 4 songs before the year runs out. He said, “I have not done a lot this year. I have just released one song, Skibobo, but I plan to drop four songs before the year runs out. I have been busy with other things, which have affected my music. But from this month, I will start putting out new materials. He also reminisced about his struggling days in Surulere. “I started from nothing. At the time I was staying in Surulere, we had 32 rooms and one toilet. But I have my own house now. I am proud of myself and my family is happy for me. Even before I became Skiibii, I was working hard. Kcee saw me and told his manager to look for me. I met with them and we started doing things together.” he said.
