Skales leaves EME

It's confirmed. Skales (pictured beside Banky W) has parted ways with Empire Mates Entertainment (EME) after over 3 years with the label. There was no fight, disagreement or any drama like that, the label just didn't renew his contract after the one they had with him expired in January 2014.

Skales has removed EME from all his social media accounts and is planning to manage his music career himself with the help of management company, M.et.al Management, going forward.

So it's the record label that actually dropped him. He's probably not meeting up to expectation.

Hopefully he'll sing a beta song naw, he said His d only one who can rap nd sing. Wen I hear does lines. I jst laugh.

Awww. So sad!

Martins Aboy said...

I understand if EME doesn't renew the contract they had with skales..truth be told;no company on this planet earth would like to make any expense where there is no return..take wizkid for example;when he left EmE it was actually shoken.but talking about skales(don't know if he is a rapper or singer) one can actually tell he hasn't made much return for EmE..soo I think any decision made by EME is quite owkay and renewing the contract they had with skales is totally up to them..i wish skales all the best in his carrier tho!!

Good for him. Good talent buh I don't know what is pulling the dude bak

Lolz long over due sef,he was wasting their time and money....wish you luck sha hope you blow somewhere else

Anonymous said...

So the SKALES have finally fallen off BANKY W & EME's eyes...I always said that if Skales's Mukulu didn't blow as it should have, he might never get to blow...lol. Too bad tho, business is business.

Skales seems to be a confused musician qithout a definitive brand of music.... He has too choose between rapping and singing

few said...

hmm...skales is not an A-list artist so he is not bringing much profit to eme(banky w) dey jux wait 4 his contract to dew so dat dey can dipose him off
Had it been it waz wizkid d headline would"eme wants wizkid to renew is contract"
Skales, u r taking d music industry wif a soft hand wen oda artists r struggling to release song day by day..everibody wanna b on top..#hard work pays#

Few say so*via B.A.G*

There's always sunshine after every rainstorm.. For skales, now's d storm. If u listen to his latest single 'very soon' you'll get to understand d niggaz feelings. From d very first day I heard 'heading for a grammy', I knew ds kid wz talented nd I've been following him keenly.. Itz jez a matter of tym. Keep ur head up holmes.

Anonymous said...

One thing straight, u've got a gud voice, but u . in d wrong path of music, one of d bad tin is dat u try much to rhyme even wen its out of d rhythm (excessive rhyme makes music sound childish).. ur kind of rap doesn't fit in, in Nigeria... So u r neither a rapper as well, Why don't u try d kinda music like Dare-alade, Praiz, I think dat will b nice for u...

Wildflower said...

He shld find something better to do with his life jare......he came during d regime of WizKid....there is no way he can make it

Olu OmoFayemi said...

Every1 forgot that Banky himself started rough, not as a superstar he is today. Pls stop devaluing, discouraging, and telling some1 he wont make when ua not God and u dont even know what the future holds for u. im not personally skale music, but i wish him goodluck in his pursuit. #tought#

Unknown said...

Skalez is actually a very talented rapper...just that his genre of music don't really appeal to the naija audience..

breal said...

All I can say is good luck man. I believe this is a new beginning for you. Bigger u I pray

Even with bomb on his body, he still couldn't blow. Horrible dress sense and stupid haircuts, it was only a matter of time.

lucky chukz said...

Its long overdue.. His carear that's barely started is already crashing. He left his original Rap to do RnB just to fit in with EME but it still didn't work. Better for him o even if I don't like him

Wishing him all the best. This should give him more courage to do well.

Anonymous said...

Skales is dope. He is better than a lot of this artists. Take care of me, denge pose, mukulu, very soon etc. Are very very good songs. They just do not package or promote him enough, which is quite sad. Or maybe he lacks the star factor ? Anyway, Skales go and surprise everyone who has labelled you negatively, work extra extra hard now and surprise them all. I belive in you.

Good for him...Nigerian record labels focuses on just one artiste and leave d rest on their label to keep waiting till its time to promote their stuff which is not fair. They kill talents by focusing on one artiste,dis brings psychological effect on d rest...they shld learn frm Swizz beats,Timbaland,Dr.dre all dis guys put their artiste out der and promote them equally, same luv eminem got,50cent got it too frm dr.dre and also the game and now kendrick lamar shares dat same love from Aftermath label...skales do ur thing cos its dope. I wonder why we keep listening to wack songs in naija witout meaning,some witout substance,some witout good lyrical content etc and we give those song props cos of yansh and boobs. People lack morals

Wow, skales was heading for a grammy but ended up in the grainy dirt. He was so talented, I mean listen to 'must shine' and some of his old ish but trying for that commercial appeal jst didn't work for him. Skales got his ass skelewued out of eme after banky don bang am finnish. Wizkid was his catalyst but now #bad market. Join starboy
