Mavin Records star Dr Sid has ruled out the possibilities of him launching his own record label. The singer addressed the issue during a recent interview with Leadership Newspaper.
Below is excerpts from the interview….
Talking about loyalty, you are the only artiste of the default MoHits records, who is in Mavin records. Why did you decide to stick with Don Jazzy?
Don Jazzy and I are great friends. We have always had a very good working relationship. When we are in studio we create together. It was really natural. Don Jazzy is the person I have great bond, respect and relationship with. When the rumours came out I was the one that broke up MoHits Records there was really no need to talk then. It is easy to point accusing fingers or blame on someone. But people need to really get the facts right. And honestly thinking about it now, I might have had a part to play in the whole. That is the honest truth.
What are you future plans, do you intend to establish yourself some time?
People keep asking me this question. Because Lil Kesh has started a record label and now people think I should. Well, the truth is most artistes, who start record labels, want to be independent. And the question is why do they want to be independent? If you are in a situation that works, if every of your needs are met, if you have a great boss, your bank account is credited timely, everything is fine, why would you want to leave? You might say, I want to have my own label. But that is not based on functionality. A record label should not be something you want to possess. It is business. And it is important to say that it is not beans [easy] to have a record label. It is not beans to take care of yourself, let alone other people. Being in Mavin records has not hindered my progress in anyway; it has not stopped the money in my bank account. I give the record label what is due to it and the record label does its part. In the end, it is business. It is a partnership.
Are you saying you are not leaving Mavin records any time soon?
I do not have a problem with anyone opening their own label. If it works for them fine. I am not going to put myself in a situation just because everybody says or is doing so. What I have works.
