Bongo star Diamond Platinumz on the artists leaving his record label Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) following the recent exit of Rayvanny.
Rayvanny exited the label on Tuesday after six years and said that he was focusing on his record label “Next Level Music” and he was looking forward to growing talent.
He penned an emotional letter to the Wasafi family, his colleagues, and the Wasafi team.
“It’s been six years since we started working together, my team, my family WCB Wasafi, the love, unity has been a very strong pillar as a team.
“I have learned a lot from the team and also, we have achieved much as a team. You have raised me and nurtured my talent,” he wrote.
Diamond while speaking with DW Africa, he said that he is happy to nurture talents, he also went ahead and said that he always dreamed of empowering young people from the moment he recorded his first song.
“After I had just dropped my first hit and people could recognize my music, I got a feeling that I had to empower more youth and that is why I started the Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) record label,” he said.
The Jeje hitmaker went ahead and said that all the artists he has nurtured are not just artists but superstars in the music industry.
“I have introduced many artists but I have not just introduced artists but superheroes, so now they are role models to other youths and that is what I want to do. I want to use my platform to empower more so they can also empower other people. As Africans we need to empower others,” he said
Diamond and Harmonize are still not at loggerhead after he left Wasafi’s record in 2019 after complaining about his 15-year contract with them.
Harmonize who was not satisfied went ahead and exited the record label and was forced to part ways with Ksh 24 million for abandoning the contract prematurely.
He was forced to sell his three houses to raise the penalty fee before leaving the record label and also to allow him to have full ownership of the songs he did under Wasafi Baby Classic (WCB).
