John Blaq falls out with his Black Magic Records managers
John Kasadha aka John Blaq is a very bitter man after falling out with his management over money. His managers happen to be his cousins.
Earlier on, there were reports that the fallout was after he was caught with a girlfriend to one of the managers, but his lawyer says that is not true, it is all to do with money.
The trouble though is that his now former managers won't give him the login details as his social media platforms have become the property of Black Magic Records that he was signed to. He had 174,326 fans on Facebook, 315,811 fans on Instagram and 91.5K subscribers on YouTube.
The two parties have tried for the last three months to sort things out, but his ex-managers are not buying that school of thought.
His lawyer roughly estimates the lost money to be to the tune of 300M.
Artists like Irene Ntale, Lydia Jazmine, Fik Fameica and the B2C are among those that have fallen out with their managers and to some, it can mean to be a real blow.
Irene Ntale fell out with Swangz Avenue, Lydia Jazmine was being managed by Bushingtone, Fik Fameica by Karma Irvien, B2C by Andy Events.
It is now left to be seen how the Obubadi star will pull out of this and also continue releasing hit after hit like he has been doing from the time he joined the industry.
John Blaq is behind hit songs like Do Dat with 2.2M views in 11 months, Nekwatako, Ebyalagirwa, Tewelumya Mutwe, Obubadi and Tukwatagane among others.
Hullo Hullo is his latest jam that was released in March, it has half a million views on YouTube and his best is Mama Bulamu with 1.3M views in 9 months.
This is not the right time for an artist to have issues with their social network platforms as they will not be performing for some time due to the coronavirus disease that requires social distancing as a preventive measure.
