Nigerian singer and music producer, Samklef, has shared a story detailing the devastating situation he found himself in after signing for popular American singer and songwriter, Akon.
According to Samklef, per the treatment given him, it was a “Slavery deal” he signed with Akon under Konvict Music. He said that the situation nearly made him take his own life as it wasn’t a pleasant one.
He said that the big artistes and record labels in the music industry do nothing to help their artistes but rather use them as a cash cow to milk investors and later leave artiste to their own fate.
Nigerian filmmaker HG2 filmworks, jumped to Samklef’s defence, asking Akon to respond to the allegations levelled against him by his countryman. He warned him to settle issues amicably or will forever hold him responsible, should anything bad happen to the singer.
