Davido, an Afropop singer, has hinted that he would record a project with Cynthia Morgan, a Nigeria-born vocalist, after the latter broke the internet with lurid details of her feud with Jude Okoye, CEO of Northside Entertainment, her former label.

Morgan, 28, had suddenly gone off the grid for a year but would later announce a rebrand in 2018, which saw her change her stage name to Madrina. Yet, she wasn’t forthcoming in music.

But in an Instagram chat on Saturday, the vocalist opened up on how the fallout of her exit from her former label affected her music identity, VEVO account, music royalties, and social media accounts.

According to Morgan, the fallout came after Jude had claimed she didn’t meet her financial obligations on the monies spent on producing the videos to her songs.

“Jude Okoye took over my VEVO account, made me stop using Cynthia Morgan as a stage name because he claimed I did not pay him all the money spent on producing my videos,” she said.

“I would have won if I battled him back then but I felt it wasn’t necessary. I paid for my accommodation, the only thing he did for me was to shoot videos that he didn’t even promote.”

She went on to narrate how she battled with depression and relocated to Benin to save cost for treatment of an undisclosed illness that almost took her life.

“I fell ill in December 2018 and it lasted for like six months. I became depressed because I felt I was not where I needed to be,” she said, adding that she’s open to music partnership for her comeback

Davido’s hints collaboration with Morgan

However, in reaction to her story, Davido took to his Twitter page to ask Morgan to reach out to him for an anthem they would work together on, stating that he would be going ahead to record his own verse.

“Cynthia Morgan call me. Tell Cynthia I got an anthem for her. I’ll record my verse now,” he wrote in two related tweets.

The Afropop star also shushed a user who had suggested he reached out to Morgan privately, charging him not to block the blessings of another person with his opinion.

Peter Okoye joins the fray, backs Morgan

Among those who took to social media in solidarity of Morgan was Peter Okoye, who compared his decision to split from P-Square, a defunct group he shared with Paul Okoye, his twin brother, to Morgan’s purported quest for freedom.

“And some people thought I was stupid when I made the right decision [to leave Paul and Jude]. My dear C Morgan! It’s never too late to be what you might have been,” Mr P wrote in a flurry of tweets.

“God will surely see you through and carry you through the storm. Keep believing. My dear C Morgan, the decision I made 3yrs ago was never about the [fame], money, or power!

“It was for my FREEDOM! Sad you rejected the contract I gave u. Just because they made you see me as the bad egg. I pray you understand that God has a purpose for everything. Never give up.”

May D claims he was poorly treated while under Jude Okoye

In the heat of Morgan and Jude’s saga, Akinmayokun Awodumila, a singer better known as May D, also alleged that he was poorly treated while under Northside Entertainment to the chagrin of those who claimed his own case was greed.

He also claimed that he slept on a carton in the boy’s quarters which he shared with their driver.

“When I speak, people think I’m ungrateful, but the truth will always come out one way or the other last-last cuz I’m a covenant child!” he wrote in a series of tweets.

“How can you say greed when I never billed them for anything I have ever done for them in my life! From writing credit and vocal credit on the invasion album … ask them if I was ever greedy! Just let them say it!.

“For your information, I was staying in their boys squatters with their driver and their cook just one room all of us shared a toilet and I had big songs and also the other side of their twin duplex was empty! Now! I slept on brand new television carton used my shirt as cover cloth.”

Jude Okoye breaks silence, denies multiple allegations

In an interview with Tunde Ednut, Jude Okoye refuted some allegations against him by Morgan, including claims that he stopped her from using her stage name.

While claiming that Morgan owes him over N40 million, Jude also dismissed allegations that he failed to promote the singer.

According to him, he had severed ties with the singer in 2017 after she looked him in the eyes and asked what he had done for her career.

“All this time, she has been trying to make me come out in the media. Why I came out this time was because Peter put mouth for this matter. It is very obvious that even if I’m found dead at the corner of the street, Peter would still have something negative to say about me,” Jude can be heard saying.

“I don’t understand why. Nigga, I’ve not spoken to you since 2017 September. People are rallying around doing Go Fund Me. Good. But all this while, how come none of her colleagues have come to her rescue? Not even rescue as in giving her money or sponsoring her. I mean rescue as in identifying with her.

“That is how she burns all the bridges I connected for her out of ego. She looked me to my face and told me’ What the fuck have you done for me.”

Speaking on May D’s claims, Jude said his altercation with the crooner began after he gave him a contract some years back. He said May D came back two weeks after the contract to state that there were no incentives therein.

According to the record executive, May D had demanded a car and an apartment in Lekki, a city in Lagos, despite the fact that the singer was still burgeoning and had yet to do much at the time.
