Chidinma dubbed Miss kedike in all honesty has not been the once glowing artiste she was once known for. Her career slump became glaring to fans after she parted ways with Capital Hill Records.
Illbliss, Chidinma’s former boss and co-owner of Capital Hill Records, gives an insight to what really transpired between the music imprint and her. According to Illbliss, the record label did not want to renew her contract after seven years with the label.
“Chidinma didn’t just wake up one morning and leave the record label. Didn’t you guys see that the relationship degenerated? Her contract expired with Capital Hill and we did not want to renew it. We are the record company; so, we decide what to do with an artiste we create.”
Illbliss also explained that it’s not a policy of the record label to hold on to its artists very long.
“From the start, Clarence Peters and I didn’t plan to keep artistes for too long. Phyno stayed for a year too. There is always a problem when you start to keep an artiste for too long because you want to recoup all the money you invested in him or her and make a huge profit too. We made some good money from these artistes; we made enough money to break even and cover all our expenses,” he said.
