One of Nigeria’s most talented rappers Vector Tha Viper (Olanrewaju Ogunmefun) is currently facing serious troubles with his record label YSG Ent a division of Young Shall Grow Motors company which is been managed by Obiora Obianodo(picture on the right)
This clash seems to have started months back when vector laid complains about his progress-rate of his career in the industry and the label’s reluctance towards this. As a result vector suggested more professional hands be employed but this suggestion was taken to be a threat to the label. When they refused to see reasons with his suggestions,vector went ahead to hire hands on his payroll. And this of course took the clash to another level.
Vector Who has been with his record label for over four years now has been on the same page with his label without any hassle, until now. And things got really bad when Vector took a vacation to the US (self-sponsored). On returning his label boss claimed he went to the US to sign a record deal.
Weeks after, Vector received and invitation letter from the Commissioner of Police of Lagos state and was summoned to the Area-E command (Festac). On getting there, he was presented with a “breach of contract” petition, claiming that he has engaged external hands to work for him. Vector who is the son of a retired Police Officer, got his father involved and the dispute was settled amicably.
Due to the mess of things so far, Vector decided to return the car and move out of the apartment provided for him by the label and acquired replacements for himself.
Thinking it was was over, Vector went on with his daily life (as lawyers were already handling the case) until the 10th of June while he was shooting his scene of the Ghetto RMX video by Shank, at his childhood neighbourhood (Mcarthy Barracks, Obalende, Lagos); where men of the police force came to seize him and his personal manager (Michael Umoru) and took them back to Festac, this time under a proper arrest and they were detained from 3pm till 10pm when his lawyers came through.
Also just a few days back, Vector Lost control of his twitter account @vectorYSG which currently has 99,813 followers as it has been confirmed to be taken over by his label.
Vector’s manager says a new twitter handle @VECTORTHAVIPER has been activated and is now his artistes official handle, alongside the launch of his official Website www.vectorthaviper.com… Will this end up in Another Management/Artist split up???…#NoMALeVo
