Malawi’s renowned urban artist and Airtel Malawi brand ambassador, Piksy has ordered Nde’feyo Entertainment to stop making transactions on his behalf claiming that the outfit ended his contract indirectly and he is now “free agent”.
Piksy confirmed to have penned Nde’feyo informing them about his decision on premises of non-adherence to contractual terms.
But the company’s Director Khumbo Munthali argued that the artist’s contract will expire next year.
“I wrote them that from September 1, 2013 the company should stop making transactions on my behalf because I am free agent.
“If they are claiming that the will end next year, are they going to finance the remaining album and two DVDs? Let us accept that the deal has flopped,” said Piksy.
The clauses in the contract, according to the brain behind ‘Uncle Short One’ song, are silent on what should be done if a signee is not getting contract’s benefits.
“Nde’feyo ended my contract indirectly because I was not getting the intended benefits,” asserted Piksy.
However, Munthali contended that the contract with Piksy is legally going on till next year, faulting the artist for rushing to the media.
Munthali also expressed ignorance on Piksy’s letter to the company claiming “am hearing it from you”.
“I am not aware of that. We are also hearing from you that we have failed to honour the contact,” said Munthali.
Another artist, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said he was not surprised to learn that the deal between Nde’feyo and Piksy has gone sour, saying many foresaw it since Maskal’s deal was a disorder.
“I suspect that there is something wrong with the way musicians are treated at Nde’feyo label, which prompting potential musicians to call it quit.
“My advice to Nde’feyo Entertainment is to respect its signees by walking the talk or what their contracts say,” he said.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
