Singer Opeyemi Rahim, popularly known as Lyta, has expressed his desire to return to his former record label, YBNL Nation owned by rapper Olamide.
Lyta made this known in the race not episode of the Ginger Yourself podcast, stating that his departure from the label was not intentional.
He said, “I want to be back with YBNL, what I did back then leaving wasn’t intentional. I didn’t hear from Olamide before leaving and after I left, he just locked up. But I’ve spoken to him since leaving. I chatted with him via Instagram on his birthday and he responded.”
Speaking about his departure in a 2022 interview, the 25-year-old artiste, he heard a lot of “whispers” from friends in the industry and got “confused”.
He said: “It is just confusion. Maybe I was the one who was confused. Then when I dropped ‘Temi’, I met new people in the industry and there was so much stuff like that, and friends that were in the industry already were whispering things to me.
“I’m a small boy, I can’t say I’m a small boy but like there were so many things and I didn’t know which one to believe. Some people got into my head with random s**t. I can’t even blame myself because I believe it is normal for upcoming artistes who don’t understand the industry.”
In 2019, Lyta also said he left the label because he was not given the freedom he wanted.
Lyta joined Naira Marley’s record label one year after dumping Olamide’s label.
