Harrysong: 'I Have No Beef With Five Star Music But I Wrote Majority of Their Songs, I Hope They Don't Crumble'
Earlier this week, Harrysong announced his exit from Five Star music - and revealed he's launching his own record label, 'Alter Plate'.
In an interview with TheCable Lifestyle, the singer opened up about his time with Five Star music, making it known that he wrote most of the songs that were released by the label - including Kcee's hit tracks.
According to him: "I have learnt all through the years from Question mark to Five Star, my contract expired at Five Star expired and I progressed to open Altar Plate, there is no beef or quarrel. This is what I want to do and I am doing it.
"When I was signed under Five Star, I wrote majority of the songs but my departure from Five Star does not mean that it would crumble. They have talented people like Kcee, Skibii and Xbusta. I came in with my own sound and I have left with my sound. They have their own sound and they will go with that.”
On his new company, he clearly stated that Five Star music will have no part whatsoever in it.
“Five Star is not contributing Altar Plate, this is all about Harrysong. We have our website and our social media platform to keep fans updated about our activities.
“There is no possibility of returning to Five Star. My contract has expired and I have started Altar Plate so there is no going back but I will always appreciate them. If I am called upon to do anything, maybe write a song, I will.
On new signees especially female singers, the ‘Reggae Blues’ crooner, said he might be signing one when needed.
“We have female artistes that are doing well in the industry, a lot of them and maybe I will try one as we progress. If we need one, we will get one.”
The 35-year-old Warri born singer had earlier revealed in a previous interview that he felt underappreciated by Five Star Music.
He told Planettv: "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.
"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 said.
