Former Chocolate City Artiste, Olayiwola Kokumo, popularly known as Koker has spoken on his exit from the MI Abaga led Chocolate City Music label.
Koker exit from Chocolate city generated some suggesting he had personality issues with MI, while others felt he was not given much attention during his four-year stay in the label.
In an interview with The Punch, the artiste, through his manager, Ibrahim Bello, stated that he had a very cordial relationship with his erstwhile boss MI.
He said:“We have a very cordial relationship. When it’s time for business we work and vice versa.“We have had a lot of performances together and if you look at MI, he’s on entirely.”
Speaking on the alleged lack of attention by the label, Koker said:
“Everyone was given at least a decent level of presence on the scene. I had solid hits back to back, which supported the efforts of the label and I knew the importance of needing to prioritise and lending my strength to the label.”
The artiste stressed that he still had a very solid relationship with the label because the resolution reached at the end of the contract was for both parties to remain as a family.
He also added that his first song, Daddy, released after leaving his former label, was attracting a lot of attention.
