Southjamz Exclusive: Why YCEE and the remaining Artistes Left TINNY Entertainment


TINNY Entertainment was undoubtedly one of the leading Record Labels in Nigeria with a handful of talented acts signed under it.
The label is owned by Mr Timilehin Arokodare popularly known as Small TINNY, the label housed amazing entertainers such as YCEE, BELLA, Dapo Tuburna, Damilare and few others.

Last Week the front liner of the label YCEE made it publicly known, via a tweet, that he is no longer signed to the music label, in response to a fan who asked if he was still with the label. In truth, YCEE had terminated his contract with the label since September 2018, as well as, Bella, Dapo Tuburna and Damilare, who all terminated their contracts with the label, leaving TINNY Entertainment with no artiste to manage.

According to Azeez ‘Calypse’ Olalekan, who was the label’s PR (and held the record of the longest served member of staff) “I handled the label’s social media platforms, distribution and promotion of content; and trust me, in my almost two-year stay at the label, I lost count of how many staff members came and went. There was an instance where the label’s CEO returned from the UK and sacked ten of his staff members, leaving only the gate man and myself. One other time, a new staff member was employed on Monday and was sacked on Friday. Let’s say, Boss TINNY, as I always referred to him was a ruthless boss with high demand for excellence and little or no regard for his staff”
In further talks with the head of PR he further disclosed “It’s no surprise at all that all his artistes up and terminated their contracts with him at the same time.

The artistes’ anger with the label had started long ago and only intensified in January 2018 during the YCEE Juice Concert in London. YCEE and Bella had had issues with the label’s CEO while they were all in London; and as punishment, the management had abandoned the talents in the UK, leaving them with no means to take care of themselves or even return home. I will not go into the details of how the talents were able to survive their stay in the UK. The issue was later resolved but not too long afterwards, trouble brewed again in the camp when the label could no longer handle the management of her four artistes concurrently. Not a day went by without a complaint from one of the artistes demanding the status of their career and their brand direction. I remember this time when Dapo Tuburna, in indignation, sent an angry mail to the label’s CEO demanding to know the way forward as regarding his music career, while pointing out that the label was not holding up their own end of the contract; stating he funds his own distribution and promotion most of the time, despite having signed to a label as prominent as TINNY Entertainment. Damilare on the other hand, never stopped complaining about how the label did not have time for him and how the distribution and promotion of his releases were not properly funded by the label. He was signed in 2017 and had only two singles and a video to show for it. Established artistes often have a key-man clause in their contracts, which allows them to leave for another label if both parties, the label and the artiste, come to a mutual agreement to part ways. I think, that was the case with YCEE. For upcoming artistes, dropping out may be better than being stuck in a contract with a corporation that cares more about the bottom line than having the conviction to stick with artistes, even if they do not see immediate returns”.

Dear upcoming artistes, Obviously this big labels are not as rosy as we think and obviously before penning down a deal, be sure of your stand and value…

SJ Exclusive Interview: Kelvinchrome Talks His Career As A Music Producer / An Artiste/ His Forth Coming Album And More


Nigerian Music producer Kelvinchrome (chromesoundz) who is an Afro Soul/Rnb artist and a song writer Is one of the music producers who has taken the Nigerian music Fusion and retro game to the next level. His wide repertoires in the craft has given him a somewhat incredible but perfect mix of sounds he featured in his debut Music Album tagged “Sounds Of Life” #SOL.

On this exclusive interview with SouthJamz (Ugochi Uche), Kelvinchrome talks about his career as a recording artist, a music producer, his forth coming ALBUM and his dreams for 2018 and beyond.



My name Is Kelvin Ekarika. I hail from Akwa Ibom state. I am a music producer, recording artist and song writer based in Lagos Nigeria.


I started producing music when I was 13yrs old. I used the Yamaha PSR340 to make instrumental then to PSR640 then to PSR1000 which became my favourite. I would make instrumentals all day long and then record it into a Cassette tape just to listen to it with my sony Walkman. Till one day I got a call and made my first N10,000 of my beats at the age of 15yrs old I knew I found my path.


Normally, sounds play in my head everyday. Every minute. In fact my mind develops a signature caricature tune for almost every person I meet and spend sometime with studying the key movements of the individual and translating it to sounds in my head. When ever they come around the sound or music will start to play *Laughs* and that sound describes Their persona in totality. So I reek of sounds- Millions in my head. But I learned to manage them eventually, learned to assemble those sounds and like a knife through butter, it made sense.


I have been in the choir since 10yrs of age. Started singing with the choir that young. Then soloed my first song when I was 14yrs old. Later I joined a music group called De Angels, contested for the Song Of The year and came 2nd runner up. After that, Joined JYC. Along side the C.E.O Faitho “Beegboi” Ndah in 2009 as a music producer, song writer and co- artist. After which I went solo to do my thing.


It is a unique assemblage of sounds. Sleeker than your average kind of album and lyrics cycling about Love.. You know nature breeds Nothing but love when u tastes a pineapple… Exactly the point! Putting together the *Sounds of life* album was exciting. Since I had to select my favourite sounds and progressions, my creative process was quite easy. I wrote and recorded the songs over a period of time. Then worked with Sound Engineers like PluzFactorFactory ApluzMix, Dan Jiggy, DannypKME and Ibboss (Innoveightive Beat). The songs were all produced by Chromesoundz

The music is about my life and experiences in life generally.


Competition can only abound where niche is scarce. My music is different. I bank on that!.

Well, y’all have heard it all… Save for this One, a compilation of Well made sounds…

The rapper did a couple of fresh works including the tribute dedicated to the victims of the Reigners Church tragedy with less Ibibio flows though then the release of “Sukuta” (a song that’s still raving the whole country from airplay to media hype) Where he reaffirms his versatility in bursting both Ibibio and English flows. This bro is surely one Rapper that’s gon last long in the sphere

So much came, tried and left while others are still tryina balance well then kpam! D-zaya emerged… His Unique style gained him easy access as we term him “Ibibio Twister” The Nditò crooner is by far the fastest Ibibio rapper yet seen.

The Singles no get counts again sef. Rocking every Shows and killing every features including the Iyanya / Ikpa Udo single and lately Zillions “Give it to Me” Upper X remains one of the biggest face in calabar music sphere holding it down to UY city. He remains one of the most sort after indigenous rapper in shows from Cali to Uyo and beyond and verily I tell you, the boi dey kill shows.

#2. Ikpa Udoh

The lyrical Edidem of Ibiono rap a.k.a Ekpri popsy wey dey make the flow proper! Formally known as “Indigenous Malik” made his debut entry with “Itipe Ke” where he comically communicated the future impossible terms of some high ranking Nigerians being broke, since then it’s been hit after hit and before we could say “jack” the Boy became the most sort after Ibibio rapper as at when he released “Play Me and Wuo Dòk which featured Bobby Frank. Ikpa Udo bagged series of awards and nominations played top shows and piew! Moved to Lagos and next we heard, (adi fim flag Maximum Disturbance #ikor. ) in other news he got signed to “Maximum Disturbance Entertainment ” and has been keeping it real ever since with hits including “Nsuto Gbedu, Right Now, Ke Nsi Nsi and Ayakid ” making mad wave across the country.
He is without disputation the most commercially successful Ibibio Rapper at the Moment

#1. Zillions

Born Nsikan Urua, the “number one done pay money1 Capone” came at a time when nobody believed the possibility and proved Ibibio flows could sound yummy in Hip Hop genre.
Started off in 2003 with Eddy Brendan as a duo “EB-ZEE”
Zillions is without exaggeration the reason anybody else is doing it.
The hit single “Nsa Isong” in 2008 brought a new dawn to Ibibio music. He is not just in the industry but apart of the industry as His Ernest contributions massively Assisted the pioneering of lots of Labels and Movements including the Idiok Aboy movement in 2012 with the likes of DJ Santo,Sagas,Penz Meladis,IkpaUdoh, Otyno, Ogiver, illest, SupersonicBlaze, Oga sir, LJ and Lybra.
With countless features with the likes of Mr.Xto,Aitee Inyang, Double Dee, the Cartel, Idiok Aboy, Ikpa Udoh, Real pee Ajagba,Ice Boxx,Icekyd,Sir Wilker , and a whole lot of others.

Recently the self acclaimed “Ibibio rap god” unleashed a triplet set of singles all mad hits including “Give it to me & NAM MKPOH MFO ft Upper X,Ikpa Udoh and Lybra. To yet prove he is still the best that ever did it…



The rapper is not much of an Ibibio rapper per say but truth is he never fails to spice up the janded package with his dialect in just a way that makes perfect sense and his latest single #Sai took it to a whole new level though…  Well-done boss
