The management outfit accuses the rapper of betrayal.
Relatively known female rapper, CocoIce, who became a popular after the videos to her singles, “It’s Me” and “If U Don’t,” were released, has been sacked by her management, MAGiKAL Entertainment, owned by Biodun Caston-Dada.
According to a statement issued by the management outfit, CocoIce was accused of complete betrayal of trust by signing a record deal with an unnamed record label without involving the management.
“Without going into full details, we decided to terminate the contract since the act has reneged on some of the terms of the initial agreement (both written and verbal) which has led our organization to incur so much loss running into millions of naira.
“Our investigation has shown that the artiste went ahead to sign a recording contract deal with a record label without our knowledge, a move that was contrary to the “gentleman’s” agreement we had with her on the issue of record label deals. We wish her all the best in her future endeavour while we try to lick our wounds occasioned by this betrayal of trust,” reads the statement signed by Biodun Caston-Dada.
Efforts to reach CocoIce, whose real name is Mojisola Sowole, to confirm the story were unsuccessful.
