Orezi not signed to Davido's HKN gang

26 September 2013, 16:44

Abuja - Contrary to the news that budding singer Orezi has signed a deal with Davido's HKN Gang, Nigerian Entertainment Today investigations reveal that the pop singer is yet to put pen to paper on any deal.

In May 2013, Davido revealed Orezi as the newly signed act to his HKN Gang record label. This was shortly after he and Orezi had hinted fans on social media Twitter on a possible signing.

Orezi tweeted; "About to make a big career decision !! Change is the only constant thing in lyf .. Lord see me tru."

Davido was quite excited to announce the signing too. "I just signed my new artiste but you guys may know him...Orezi, welcome to the team homeboy", he announced back in May.

But sources close to Orezi have confirmed to us that there were never any concrete talks on the signing which ultimately yielded into talks going in limbo.

NET has learnt that Orezi, who quit his working relationship with former label Cullbeed Music, is currently signed to Sprisal Records being backed by one of the sons of late Oil and Petroleum mogul at FATGBEMS Petroleum, Alhaji Fatai Gbemisola.

Just like Cullbeed Music boss Kolade 'Ronkay' Ajayi's heavy spending, Orezi will be receiving massive financial support once again. Orezi who completed his university education last year and participated in the National Youth Corp Service this year is currently in South Africa doing some club rounds and is expected to return to Nigeria any moment from now.

"Orezi was never signed to HKN, it was just verbal, an understanding. He is signed to Sprisal Records," Orezi's current manager Ayodeji told NET over the phone.

Sprisal has already gone on to shoot a high budget video for Orezi's new single "Rihanna" and are working on his long awaited debut album.

When contacted, a rep for HKN Gang confirmed that Orezi has not been signed to the label as previously announced.

"HKN Music believes that Orezi is an incredibly talented act. He is one of the acts who we would like to be signed formally onto the label in October.

Already Orezi and his management have been reviewing a contract with HKN Music's legal team. The terms haven't been concluded as we speak," a rep for HKN told Nigerian Entertainment Today.

It was also revealed that two other artistes touted as HKN Gang recording artistes: pop artiste Danagog and Ghanaian act Deekay have also not been officially signed.
