Rising Nigerian musician, Daniel Benson aka Buju has spoken about his exit from Burna Boy’s independent record label, Spaceship Collective.
Interviewed by host, Kojo Manuel on Y107.9FM’s Dryve of Your Lyfe, he explained that leaving the label was not because there was any bad blood between them but simply because his contract had ended.
“The love and respect for Burna as a person, as an artiste and as a mentor generally, stays forever because I still have that love for the record, the persona, and everything but sometimes, plans have to change and strategies have to change. It’s only right sometimes for growth”, he said.
According to Buju, “It just came to the end of the contract road and everybody was just looking for better. I was just looking for better so it’s not our relationships that went sour or anything, we just did what was accorded on paper”.
Buju was signed to Spaceship Collective for a year, under which he released a couple of singles and features with Burna Boy himself, Zlatan and other artistes.
Buju has recently gained a lot of recognition with his feature on Ladipoe’s jam ‘Feelings’, and he also featured on Wizkid’s recent ‘Made in Lagos’ album on a song titled ‘Mood’.
