Small Tinny the CEO of Tinny Entertainment has come under fire from Rapper Ycee over a post on IG.
The genesis of the problem started when the CEO made a post over the label’s recent achievement on reaching over a million streams across all platforms with a caption “Grateful” with no recognition of the artistes that made it possible.
Angered with the ingratitude from the CEO, Small Tinny towards his artistes, Ycee took to his Instagram page to call him out as the recent achievement of the record label did not give money to the artistes that made it possible nor acknowledgement of The work put in by the artistes, himself included!
“Before I start I would first like to apologise to everyone of you that I hold in high regard because I’ve tried my possible best not to let my social media to be used as a point of negativity or conflict but I’ve been left with no choice. So the CEO of TINNY ENTERTAINMENT took to his Instagram page yesterday to show gratitude for 100milliom plus streams (across all platforms) and this was brought to my attention which left me confused because the post as seen above was accompanied with a caption ” Grateful” and the handle of the label with no mention of the artistes whose content generated those streams.
LET IT BE KNOWN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC THAT NOT A SINGLE DIME GENERATED FROM THOSE STREAMS GOT INTO THE POCKET OF ANY OF THE ARTISTES RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONTENT THAT HAVE MADE CONGRATULATORY COMMENTS ON THE POST, THE ONLY THING THE CEO IS GRATEFUL FOR IS THE FACT THAT HE HAS YET AGAIN, SEEMINGLY GOTTEN AWAY WITH PROFITING OFF OF OTHER PEOPLES SWEAT (like he has been well known to do so many times in the past). I have been silent as I have quietly been focused on rebuilding my life and career and also, out of respect to my previous employer but he, in turn, has not accorded me that respect.
Actions ranging from attacks on my reputation by spreading falsities about me, saying I betrayed him by leaving his label (knowing fully well the terms on which our relationship ended) to leaking my music which he has absolutely zero rights to release but unfortunately happens to possess in order to delay and destabilize my debut album release.
Before anyone asks why I am doing this, it is simply to protect any other artistes from suffering the same fate and falling in the hands if this manipulative and delusional human being. I have spent the most part of the last 24 hours in set shooting the first single off my album and I am going to get some rest at this junction, so nobody should call my phone. Thank you.”
The post has generated comments from fans who most likely are in support of the rapper for what he had done! No official comment has been received from the above-mentioned record level…we’ll be sure to bring to you, subsequent reports as events unfold.
