B-Red Davido Akon Shina Ranbo

It was just a couple of weeks ago when B-Red denied rumors that he along with his brother Shina Rambo had split from HKN Record label, a label owned by their famous cousin Davido. Nevertheless, weeks later, Davido sets the record straight, in this Hip TV interview, by confirming the split . . . well not quite, per se. He says they are still with HKN but makes it clear he wanted his cousins to “stand on their own” instead of constantly staying in his “shadows”so they are now off doing their own thing.

Hmmm .. . Davido’s comments appear immature or shows lack of experience in operating a label, I think. If you run a record label and have your artists, irrespective of whether they are your blood relatives or not, signed to your label, in your “shadows,” what is your issue? Isn’t that a good thing? The question is are you amplifying their brands while clearly establishing yourself as the label boss? If you are tired of micromanaging them, then hire the right professional to ease that burden off you? Get them managers, publicists, their own booking agents etc.? Get them working. I am unclear on his comments which starts at the 7:56 mark onwards.

In any event, watch the video below courtesy Hip TV.
