Nigerian Artists Who Went Out Of Stardom After Separating From Their Record Labels

Here is a list of Nigerian artists who went out of stardom after separating from their record labels. At times it pays artists and musicians to be consistent. When you find and get signed by a record label that understands you and your music and promotes you well. It is usually wise you stay with them at least till you become a household name before moving elsewhere. Below is a list of Nigerian artists who went out of stardom after separating from their record labels.


It’s no doubt May-D reached his highest height yet as an artist while under the management of Jude Okoye. He even featured on P’squares song with Akon. May-D was the rave of the moment then while with P’square. And his fans saw him going higher and higher. We cannot certainly tell you the reason why May-D left P’Square but according to their brother Jude Okoye “May-D wanted to be P’square”. Since his departure from Square records May-D has not really shone as he used to.


The owner of black diamond record label. A very talented musician with a one of a kind of voice. Let Wande coal take the chorus of your song and you almost certainly have a hit song.Wande coal has recieved praises and appreciation from music legends like 2face and more. Wande coal still has a say in the music industry today because he is in no doubt talented and gifted. Unfortunately he is one of the Nigerian artists who went out of stardom.But he is nowhere close to where he used to be while under the management of Mo-hits and Don-Jazzy.


Iyanya was the co-founder of MMMG (made men music group) along with Ubi Franklin. The winner of the maiden edition of project fame has had a moment of silence ever since he seperated from his record label and signed up with Mavins. The Iyanya we used to know was all over the place flexing his six packs with a sweaty or oily body and making the ladies go gaga with a melodious voice. Presently Iyanya is almost silent with his newly released album doing poorly. Would circumstances have been better if he had stayed with MMMG?


We all can remember that artist who took the hook of Ice prince’s hit single oleku. That song brought both Ice prince and Brymo into the limelight. It was really a mega-hit and stole the song of the year awards in the headies. Brymo was doing really good in chocolate city. He was delivering good music to us his audience. After his split from chocolate city we have not seen Brymo in the same starlight as he used to be in. Who knows if he will be back and better soon.


His last serious hit song was oliver twist which was produced by Don-Jazzy the co-owner of their former record label Mo-hits records. Don-jazzy and D-Banj’s partnership cannot be easily forgotten in the Nigerian music industry. They have blessed the radio stations, television channels and Nigerian as well as African audience with hits after hits. Although not much can be said after his seperation from mo-hits. It would be a fans paradise to see a Don-jazzy and D-banj colloboration one more time.


We can all remember vividly dancing to the hit single o fokasibe. DJ Zeez or zeez as he is fondly called is another musician who had it really rough after departing from his record label HF music. DJ Zeez got sued by his label for breach of contract and he was charged to court for his refusal to record new music under the label. He lost the court case and has been fined a huge sum of 22 million naira to pay to the record label.Obviously DJ Zeez is one of the Nigerian artists who went out of stardom especially after his seperaation from HF music.
