Collaboration with other top artist and sign M2 under YOUNG WEALTH record label owned by Duncan Mighty,as a result an agreement was reached with a fee of ELEVEN MILLION NAIRA (N11,000,000) Was paid to him,However, since collecting the payment he refused to fulfill his own part of the deal.
”Sequel to the petition, the artist was arrested, and he affirmed the having such agreement and collecting the fund, but said he can only refund the money if the contract is terminated,/he was then released on bail on self recognisance
