Rapper and singer Skales whose real name is Raoul John Njeng-Njen has left his record label, Empire Mates Entertainment following the expiration of his contract.
Interestingly, his departure is not characterized by squabbles and drama that is usual of artistes and their labels. It is a peaceful exit.
The talented artiste plans to establish his own record label, M.et.al and has re-directed all booking enquiries to new numbers and email addresses.
According to some sources, Skales contract was not renewed because the label had been unable to recoup the investments made on him.
Wizkid, Skales former label mate who was signed on in the same year as Skales, 2010, was able break into the international music scene while Skales struggled.
Besides his popular hit single “Komole”, Skales largely did not produce an album after much hype.
