Lil Kesh has revealed that he has proved his critics wrong with his decision to leave his former label YBNL, by releasing several hit songs and making more cash since he started his own music label, YAGI – Young And Getting It.
While under YBNL, the record label owned by indigenous rapper, Olamide, Lil Kesh, was capable to create a name for himself and released a host of hit songs. Songs like “Shoki”, “Efejoku” and “Gbese”, took over the Nigerian music space in many years.
Under YAGI, Lil Kesh has released other certified club hit bangers like the Young John produced “Bend Down Select”, “No Fake Love”, “Shele Gan Gan” and “Rora”.
Speaking of his life after leaving YBNL, Lil Kesh disclosed that the decision he made to leave his Ex-record label was the right one and he has never regretted doing that.
“I was not scared when I took the step to leave Olamide’s record label”, he said. “I am never scared; I just knew it was the right move, so I was never scared. So far, I think the steps have helped me more as a person and as a brand. For one, I am a better person mentally and right now, I am not an instrument for the growth of someone’s business. Instead, I am instrumental in my own growth”.
Lil Kesh also added that he has been able to make more money with his new record label.
In his words:
“Looking at the financial side as well, it was a good step. I cannot say I would reap what I have sown immediately, but every move I make now is to ensure I have a brighter future. I am doing all this for the future. When I announced that I left Olamide’s record label, some people were skeptical, but I proved them wrong by releasing hit songs. To me, there was no option of failure; it was a win-win situation. That was my strength and my fans have been so amazing in motivating me. Thanks to my fans. With little effort, the results have always been amazing”.
Life as a label owner compared to when I was under a record label is good, but I have more responsibilities now. Life is a bit tougher now because of the responsibilities; it depicts growth and leaving YBNL was a very big step in my life”.
