Tinny Entertainment is calling it quits with Sony Music Entertainment Africa. The label responsible for Ycee, Bella Alubo and Dapo Tuburna is terminating its distribution deal with SMEA, according a statement on its website. 
On the reason behind the split, the label says it’s “best to undertake the distribution of our records by ourselves.
Read the full statement below.
We would like to state officially that we terminated our contract with Sony through our lawyers, Olaniwun Ajayi LP, by a letter dated 5 December 2017. Henceforth, we are the sole owners of the copyright in any and all of our music and can exploit our music on any and every platform. We have realized that it is best to undertake the distribution of our records by ourselves, as a record label and that made in Nigeria across board, is the only way to be above board.”
As a Label, we are pushing out great music this year starting with “Say Bye Bye,” “I Wish” and our YCEE and Bella Collabo EP, “Late Night Vibrations.”
We thank you for the love!
Tinny’s deal with SMEA was signed in October of 2016 to push distribution regionally and internationally.
