Nigerian singer, songwriter and vocalist, Shadrach Folarin, widely known as Shaydee, has hinted plans to leave Empire Mates Entertainment (EME) Records.
Shaydee, who won the best male vocal at the last Headies awards, was signed to the label in 2012, has worked with a number of big names in the industry, including Wizkid, Skales, Ice Prince, Cynthia Morgan, Banky W, among others.
Popularly known for his “Won Gbo Mi” track featuring Wizkid, Shaydee released his debut album dubbed “Rhythm and Life” in November 2016.
He hinted of his exit from the label, while wishing the label boss, Banky W a happy birthday:
“Happy birthday Bankssss @bankywellington… May God’s great favour and grace be with u. Thanks for all I have learnt from u and thanks for the opportunity you gave me to find my path in life as I continue on this incredible journey on my own. May God reward you accordingly a thousand fold. Amen #BigbroStill #RidingSolo”.
Banky W commented:
“Thanks bro. Much luv always. Open doors to you forever”, suggesting there was no bad blood between the artistes.
Despite being underrated, Shaydee seems to be doing well in the industry, with two Award nominations and a Headies win to his name (2015 Headies Best Vocal Performance (Male) Category and Best R&B Artist of The Year for the Nigeria Entertainment Awards).
Wishing him the very best to come.
