Damilola Afolabi also known as L.A.X has confirmed that he is no longer signed to Wizkid’s Starboy Entertainment.
Rumors have been making the rounds suggesting both a musical and personal split between Wizkid and his protege, although the latter has denied the rumors.
Other sources have claimed that Wizkid was not doing enough in the way of promoting the artiste as he would have wanted.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, the “Gimme Dat” singer disclosed that he is now on his own and no longer under the Starboy label.
“I am no longer signed to Star Boy Records. Right now, I’m focusing on my own outfit and I’m doing my videos, A & R, music promotion, PR and other things myself.
“I’ve been working on my album for a while now but I’m still trying to put some finishing touches to it. I will be releasing it soon but that would be after I get back from my US tour.
“However, Star Boy has a lot of input in my new album that would be released soon and I still have a working relationship with Wizkid.”
When asked why he has been going on foreign tours when he is yet to be endorsed in Nigeria, L.A.X said:
“To be honest, I have more fans outside the country than in Nigeria. Nowadays, one can actually go online and find out where the majority of downloads, streaming, and other Internet activities come from. And I have discovered that most of my fans are in the US, followed by Canada and London.
“Obviously, they want me there more and that’s why I usually go there on tour. I had amazing experiences when I traveled out of the country on tour. I went to about 14 cities in Europe and America.”
L.A.X was signed to Starboy Records in August of 2013 and has worked closely with Wizkid since then.
We hope nothing major changes after this.
