Fresh off the release of his debut album, Man of the Year, former EME signee, Skales, now signed to Baseline Entertainment, is still basking in the euphoria that accompanied the launch party which attracted a lot of top guns in the entertainment industry.
The ‘Shake Body’ singer was hosted by weekly entertainment networking event, Industry Nite on Wednesday and he addressed some of the issues regarding why he didn’t feature label mate like Wizkid and Banky W on his new album.
Apparently fed up with all the questions and insinuations that have been directed at him on the issue, Skales retorted that he is under no compulsion to feature any of the artistes.
In a chat with qed.ng, Skales said, “It’s not by force to feature them. Besides, everybody have their different schedules, so the time didn’t fit in for us all. This album had been ready a long time ago, so that’s another reason.”
On the nature of his disagreement with Wizkid and whether they have mend fences, he said, “Whatever happened has happened. Me, I’ve moved on.”
But are they in good terms now? He replied, “The truth is that I’m cool with everybody and I show the same love to everyone regardless.”
On how he feels about the turn-out of his friends in the industry at the event, he said, “I feel good and blessed. A lot of people came out to show me love and support me; it’s very nice.”
Other artistes at the event include Reekado Banks, Emma Nyra, Zeez, Mz Kiss, B-Red, Special ED, among others.
