Toke simply revealed that there has to be ways to settle this Talent/record label/management relationships because no one wins when they are not resolved.
According to her, refusing to see the bigger picture during disagreements is what leads to debts and wasted talents in our music industry.
She added that no label can claim to make any artiste who they are, because a label will only invest in a talent that is already there.
Her words, “There has to be more ways to settle this Talent/record label/management relationships, nobody wins when there is no resolve, monies are still owed, talent is still wasting, there is a bigger picture that pride/ego rubs everybody of when we refuse to see the big picture.”
“If Talent wants to leave or no longer serves purpose to a label, remove feelings and look at ways that they can go, become bigger and pay your debt. Nobody makes anyone, there was talent there, that’s why you chose to invest, let them go and focus on how they pay your investment.”
