Rapper Ill Bliss clarifies why Capital Hill Records didn’t renew Chidinma’s contract:
Since Nigerian singer, Chidinma left her former record company, Capital Hill Records, she has really been struggling to stay relevant in the music industry.
Chidinma’s present situation has made people wonder why she left Capital Hill Records when she had no backup plan.
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, co-owner of Capital Hill Records, Ill Bliss, says “Chidinma didn’t just wake up one morning and leave the record label. Didn’t you guys see that the relationship degenerated? Her contract expired with Capital Hill and we did not want to renew it. We are the record company; so, we decide what to do with an artist we create.”
“From the start, Clarence Peters and I didn’t plan to keep artistes for too long. Phyno stayed for a year too. There is always a problem when you start to keep an artist for too long because you want to recoup all the money you invested in him or her and make a huge profit too. We made some good money from these artists; we made enough money to break even and cover all our expenses,” he said.
He added that when Chidinma’s contract expired after seven years with the company, they believed she needed to build her own team. “Chidinma knows where to find us and she knows we will always help her if she needs our help. We only have me and Mz Kiss on the label at the moment,” Ill Bliss added.
