When Ycee put pen to paper for a distribution deal with Sony Music in October 2016, he was optimistic of what was to come but nowadays, the ‘Juice’ singer tweets about the issue like one who’s been burned.

In the past 24 hours, Ycee has more than once taken to Twitter to air his grievances about the Sony Music deal facilitated by Michael Ugwu.

On Tuesday, he had accused Ugwu, the general manager of Sony Music Africa, of “milking” the sweat of artistes.

His accusation forced Ugwu to respond, saying, “Not the first time I’ve been called out and I doubt It will be the last,” adding that the music business is a roller coaster of “smooth and rough” times.

He also tweeted about the allegations: “The act of making false statements about another which harms his reputation. Defamatory statements broadcast over media = libel #defamation

“A contract is a voluntary arrangement between two or more parties that is enforceable by law as a binding legal agreement #issacontract.

“Appropriate methods of contract dispute resolution. 1)Negotiation 2)Mediation 3)Arbitration 4)Litigation #appropriate.”

Dissatisfied with his response, Ycee replied saying, “This is about the growth of our industry and helping upcoming artistes who aren’t enlightened. I imagine you in politics.

The artiste also accused Ugwu of delaying the release of his EP ‘The First Wave’ “for months”.

He wrote: “You sat on my EP for months without doing anything. My sweat, my life and all I’ve got. Thank God my label had a plan B.”
