I Have Made More Money Floating My Own Label – Lil Kesh
Nigerian singer, Lil Kesh has opened up that he has been able to prove critics wrong with his decision to leave YBNL, by releasing hit songs and making more money since floating his own label, YAGI – Young And Getting It.
While under YBNL, the record label owned by popular rapper, Olamide, Lil Kesh, was able to create a name for himself and released a host of hit songs, back to back. Songs like “Shoki”, “Efejoku” and “Gbese”, took over and rocked the Nigerian music space in those years.
“I was not scared when I took the step to leave Olamide’s record label”, he said. “I am never scared; I just knew it was the right move, so I was never scared. So far, I think the steps have helped me more as a person and as a brand. For one, I am a better person mentally and right now, I am not an instrument for the growth of someone’s business. Instead, I am instrumental to my own growth”.
In his words;
“Looking at the financial side as well, it was a good step. I cannot say I would reap what I have sown immediately, but every move I make now is to ensure I have a brighter future. I am doing all this for the future. When I announced that I left Olamide’s record label, some people were skeptical, but I proved them wrong by releasing hit songs. To me, there was no option of failure; it was a win-win situation. That was my strength and my fans have been so amazing in motivating me. Thanks to my fans. With little effort, the results have always been amazing”.
