Artiste formely signed to the label were Wizkid and Skales.
Skales left due to expiration of his contracts. And Wizkid left the label following the release of his second studio album and expiration of his 5 year contracts, but that doesn’t take away the fact that the Record Label is one of the biggest in the country at the moment.
