The Nigerian entertainment industry has been filled with tales of artists and record labels at war over breach of contract.
From Brymo to Asa, Debie Rise to Harrysong and now Runtown, these artists have had to battle their record labels.
Korede Bello has advised Nigerian artistes to involve a lawyer before signing a contractual agreement. Korede stated that it is dangerous to be ignorant.
“Anyone going into a contractual agreement should consult a legal advisor or legal practitioner. You cannot just be ignorant; we are in a different world now. I have been there, I know what it means to just want something regardless of whatever it is. Make he just happen sharp-sharp.
Artistes coming up, established artists, anybody it is very important that whenever you go into a contractual agreement, you need the presence of a lawyer” he said.
