Lil Kesh Insists That Leaving YBNL Was A Right Move
Nigeria singer, Lil Kesh has disclosed that leaving his former record label, YBNL, owned by Popular Rapper, Olamide, was a right move for him and that he has also been able to prove to critics who saw it as a misstep.
According to the young singer, he has proved critics wrong by releasing hit songs since he started his own label, YAGI – Young And Getting It.
Lil Kesh also disclosed that since leaving YBNL, he has had no regrets over the decision and that it was a right decision. He said: “I was not scared when I took the step to leave Olamide’s record label. 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”.
He also revealed further that standing alone too has proved to be also financially rewarding. “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 sceptical, 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.”
“Life as a label owner compared to when I was under a record label is good, but I have more responsibilities now. Life is a bit tougher now because of the responsibilities; it depicts growth and leaving YBNL was a very big step in my life.”
The singer cum rapper made a name for himself while he was on Olamide’s YBNL record label with hit songs like “Shoki”, “Efejoku” and “Gbese” and has also managed to retain fans with his tempo since going his own way over a year ago.
Under his own label, YAGI, Lil Kesh has released other hit songs like “Bend Down Select”, “No Fake Love”, “Shele Gan Gan” and “Rora”.
