Following the unabated rumour that he is the one funding his musical projects as an act under pop star Wizkid’s StarBoy Records, fast rising Afro-pop singer, L.A.X has dispelled the insinuation.
In a release by his PR representatives, the young singer stated that contrary to the rumour swirling around that he spent million of his money to fund his project, rather, he has a proper recording deal with Starboy Entertainment, which as part of its obligation, solely handles the funding of all his projects.
“I am an artiste signed under Wizkid’s label. It is the recording label that takes care of so many things,” said L.A.X.
According to him, he met Wizkid through his (L.A.X) stylist at the time he was recording in London and the EME star showed interest in his career.
“I came to Nigeria, met with Wizzy, he liked my songs, and that is what happened. He handles everything just as a record label should do to an artiste,” he added.
