Chocolate City, Jesse Jagz, I’mma need you all to come through and let us know why Jagz left in the
open your yansh manner he chose to a few days ago. That story put some really bitter “agbo” (a very bitter herbal concoction used to treat malaria) in my mouth Friday last week. It’s like I signed up to be in a fan relationship with this label, independent of my media and blogger hats, and they just dumped me with no explanation. I need closure and I am not letting this go until I get my closure. This is not a joke. I’m serious.
I fancy Chocolate City, I fancy the artists and I think the label and its artists ought to show a little more respect both to the public, fans and media that keep and have kept them buzzing for years by letting us know what the heck that was all about?!
In the meantime, Jagz has played the background for so long at Chocolate City, but all of a sudden, he goes from his seeming abrupt exit from the label to taking center stage on Nigerian Idol. Bravo Jagz.
Alleged statements I read, I believe on Linda Ikeji, claims his needs as an artist was allegedly ignored and he has been having problems for a while with the label hence the exit. Either way, I certainly would like to know why an artist can put out the kind of note Jagz did in the
open your yansh manner he did and just “jabor” (drop) his label like that, a label of which his brother sits as Vice President.
