Nigerian singer, songwriter, and performer, Harrison Tare Okiri, better known by his music name, Harrysong, has dumped Five Star Music to float a new brand, “ALTERPLATE“.
The award-winning artiste who was formerly signed to Questionmark Records has had a successful career with chart-topping records credited to him.
His career climaxed in 2014 after he released his groundbreaking single “Betterpikin” which went viral for a very long time.
Mr Songs, as he is called, has worked with colleagues in the industry especially with ex-label mates, KCEE and Skiibii.
The announcement of his exit from Five Star Music was seen in an Interview with PlanetTV and on his Instagram page where he posted a logo and captioned it “Alterplate”.
“We are unveiling a new platform; it’s a music platform not a label, it’s a music company owned by Harrysong. It’s not supposed to be surprising, my contract expired longtime ago, no no no no I’m not renewing”, he said.
In the interview, Harrysong sounded upset and unappreciated for efforts he had put into the success of his former label.
He revealed that he was signed to Fivestar Music as an artiste and he was also in charge of song writing, vocal coaching and music directing.
“What bothers me is not the work, what bothers me is the appreciation. You are helping someone that knows nothing and the person is feeling like he is helping you, he is not even feeling, he is telling you that he is helping you”.
You write a song for someone and the person is telling you if I don’t sing your song you don’t blow, it’s childishness, it’s……I don’t know” he added.
It is not particularly clear who he was referring to.
