Alternative singer Brymo has revealed why he lost the case against his former label Chocolate City in court. The Ara Mbe singer expressed his loss during an interview on Beat FM on Monday, May 9 which also doubles as his 30th birthday. He said:
“Even though it happened a long time ago and I am constantly trying to forget it. I feel like somebody needs to resurrect the case in court. We had the opportunity to iron it out in court but they fried it up. I don’t know what they did but they definitely spoke to the judge and spoke to the lawyers and scrapped the case, they are lawyers; they can do it.”
Despite the fact that the case has been scraped by the court, Brymo said the case is inconclusive.
“I don’t know what they are doing right now, the last time I was in court was in May 2015 and they came out to tell everyone that Brymo won the case; the judge never even passed the sentence. The judge just came that day and said, “I can’t do this, they don’t trust me so I’m going to drop the case” and so he dropped it.”
Speaking on reconciliation moves, he said: “While everyone is saying I should try and reconcile with Choc City and be nice to them, they are not even being nice to me. If they had their way, I would have stopped singing a long time ago, I’ll not even be on stage performing anymore. So I think it’s sabotage and every time I try to find peace with them, they start to grow an erection and say this is what I must do now. I’m here to make music and have a great life and they are trying to sabotage that.
There’s nothing I can do but to just keep moving forward in all the purity of my heart.” on Monday, October 14, 2013 Chocolate City filed an interim injunction at the Lagos High Court restraining Brymo “by himself, agents, representatives from recording releasing distributing and composition, song, musical works or carrying out any activities as a recording or performing artiste through or for the benefit of any person or organization other than the Plaintiff pending the determination of the motion on notice for interlocutory injunction in this suit.”
Chocolate City was alleged to have been threatening anybody who is working with Brymo including the marketers of the album. And this prompted the singer to take to Twitter to cry out. Brymo tweeted that: “Audu Maikori has been calling and threatening everyone who wants to work with me, the injustice will not cease‘, @BrymOlawale tweeted on October 25, 2013. Meanwhile, popular rapper Milli has dumped Chocoalte City despite the label trying to quench the rumour when it first came out.
