Lyta explains why he dropped out of Olamide’s YBNL



The news has been going around that singer Lyta has parted ways with Olamide’s record label YBNL.

It was also reported that the two artistes unfollowed each other on Instagram in what seemed like a fallout between them.



In a new revelation, Lyta has given his story why he moved on from YBNL after just about a year on the label. He clearly states that he had no deal with Olamide’s music imprint.

“I don’t have any deal with YBNL and Olamide. Olamide saw me on the street and helped me. I don’t have any written contract with him and I don’t know about other artistes. YBNL and Olamide will always be part of my story. God bless Olamide, Thank you for everything.”

He also explained how to things were run while he was still affiliated to the music imprint.

“Sometimes they pay me 50k, 60k, 80, but when I dropped my songs “Time” and “Selfmade”, I didn’t get anything.”, he said.

Lyta states that his exit was triggered by someone who wanted to sponsor his music as introduced to him by his father.

He said, “Yes, so many people have been calling me about signing me, but I didn’t think it’s necessary for me to go until my dad called me … that there’s this guy disturbing him that he wanted to sponsor my music. He now said, can I give Olamide his number so he can talk to Olamide. I now say Okay and messaged Olamide that my dad wants to talk to him. I didn’t tell him that someone wants to sign me. He said I should go and find out. So I told my dad and my dad said okay, tell him that someone wants to sponsor your music maybe he will accept. When I sent him the message, Olamide just said: ‘if that’s best, I wish you good luck’. I was like whao! I don’t know what to reply, Wish you good luck liken how. I just said thank you sir.”
