We have heard different sides to the
issue of artists under the YBNL imprint leaving the label for greener pastures
but we never heard the real story from the parties involved. Now is the best
time to be alive as we have an official statement from YBNL/YAGI…Read and
A lot of stories have been making the
rounds ever since Lil Kesh, a protégé of Olamide Baddo (CEO of YBNL) floated
his own record label YAGI (Young And Getting It). For Once, we would like to
make clear the entire story.
YBNL as a record label was never
structured as a core business entity, it was more of a family. One of the core
values of the label and its CEO Olamide Baddo was to pick up talents from the
streets, nurture their growth into stardom in such a way that someday they get
to pick up another talent to grow. This cycle was built to go on and on and
this saw to the emergence of Lil Kesh, Viktoh, Adekunle Gold.
These 3 acts got signed into the YBNL
family and ever since rose to stardom. They individually signed 2 years
contracts, but indeed it was never about the contracts. Olamide wanted to see
these 3 men grow.
All glory to God, these men have
grown to a level where they could stand on their own. Olamide in his
benevolence wasn’t going to tie these young men down as his dream of building
young leaders is coming to live. He advised these men at the end of their
contracts to start something of their own, build your own empire, as soon as
any of them felt strong enough mentally and financially they should pick up
talents from the streets and also help them grow.
In light of this, when Lil Kesh’s
contract ended, it was just about time to listen to the leader Olamide Baddo as
he always does. He floated YAGI, a move which a lot of people misconstrued to
mean that he left Olamide Baddo.
In clear terms, Lil Kesh and the
entirety of YAGI is a part of YBNL. YBNL is one big umbrella that still
oversees the activities of Lil Kesh as an artiste and YAGI as a record label.
Olamide still plays an integral role
in the career of the young man Lil Kesh. If there is anything that has changed,
it will be the fact that Lil Kesh handles the finance of the brand Lil Kesh and
YAGI, but asides that nothing else has changed.
The situation we have here is a good
mother and daughter where in this case YBNL is the good mother and YAGI is the
daughter. Every good mother wants the growth of her daughter and that’s just
exactly what we have here.
As much as possible, we will like the
world to know that nothing has and nothing will change between Olamide Baddo
and Lil Kesh. At no point in time will Lil Kesh ever be ungrateful to God and
Olamide a man who picked him up from the streets.
At a point in time, YAGI will also be looking to have artistes signed under the
label as this has always been the dream from inception.
Special appreciation to all the fans
of YBNL and YAGI all over the world. We wouldn’t be here without you. Thank you
for the love, may God bless you.
So long you work so hard, you Yahoo Boy No Laptop (YBNL), and as much as you
getting something from what you do, you Young And Getting it (YAGI).
Lil Kesh just dropped his first
official single since the success of his debut album YAGI, Shele Gan Gan which was produced by krizbeats, the producer of tekno’s pana and its receiving massive airplays . This
is not just any song, it is a VIBE. Download and enjoy it on all platforms.
