“Why I turned down Davido’s record deal” – Singer, Barry Jhay (Video)

Nigerian singer, Barry Jhay has opened up on why he turned down a record deal that DMW founder, David ‘Davido’ Adeleke offered him years ago.

He said that he rejected the deal because he was not ready to be in competition with other artistes signed to the record label.

Barry Jhay made this known during a chat on Echo Room as he noted that the last musician Davido signed at the time was Peruzzi.

He and Davido had worked on a song ‘Only You’ and OBO was impressed so he got his lawyer, Prince to draw up a contract, but the deal did not go through.

According to the singer, there was too much competition amongst Mayorkun, Peruzzi and others in DMW which he was not comfortable with.

He further explained that when the ‘FEM’ crooner tried to sign him, he felt that was not what he needed even though OBO and everyone in the music label supported his career.
