Makhadzi’s Zimbabwean Producer Mr Brown Calls It Quits, Establishes Own Record Label After Exploitation Allegations
After allegations of exploitation, Zimbabwean producer Mr Brown has established his own record label.
The well-known Zimbabwean producer opted to be independent, following the route chosen by South African Amapiano artist Sir Trill.
Mr Brown, who made many hit songs for Makhadzi, a famous South African artist, said he wasn’t paid any money for his work.
However, the Zimbabwean producer and his former record label solved their disagreement peacefully, even though the producer had posted on social media slamming his former company for taking advantage of him.
Mr Brown posted on Facebook announcing his new record label and asked his followers to support him.
“Morning my good people .pliz help me push my company under my name. Its u who guys that i need your support ……
I really wish to get your support”
Before launching his new record company, Mr Brown was unsatisfied with his experience at Open Mic.
“I am sick and tired of being a slave for people and at the end of the day end up being paid peanuts.” In another post he said: “The reason you are not well paid is because they wanna control you so that you will depend on them. Learn to be your own boss.”
The next day, the posts were taken down. And when asked about his disagreement with Open Mic, Mr Brown said he had ‘fight’ with the record label but neglected to give any more details.
“I can confirm that there was a misunderstanding between me and Open Mic due to some other issues which we have managed to sort them out. It wasn’t something big, it was a misunderstanding between an employer and employee,” he said.
