All is not well in the camp of rising singer, Toby Grey. The singer and her management company, ScoopNaija have just parted ways after one year. We exclusively gathered that the trouble began a few days ago when the design for Toby’s next song was released and ScoopNaija’s logo was conspicuously missing.
In an exclusive chat, Kolawole Omoboriowo, the CEO of the management company said,
‘Her mum has not been helping matters at all. Fine she’s the one funding her daughter’s career but when I raised the issue that our logo was missing in the new artwork she called me to ask what really is the role of a management company’.
Since Toby Grey broke out in 2014, her mother, Mrs Adeyemi Adeola has bankrolled her career and is also the brain behind the Grey Nation movement.
We reached out to her for comments about the split from her daughter’s management and she said, ‘What did you hear? I’m sorry I don’t want to talk about it’.
ScoopNaija has now sent out an official statement saying,
‘This is to announce that ScoopNaija the former management of upcoming singer Toby Grey is no [longer] in business with the upcoming singer. We regret to announce this but certain measures had to be taken in the light of new developments that have since made the work[ing] relationship between both parties uncomfortable. Thanks for your continued support. We wish her all the best in her current and future endeavours’.
We further queried ScoopNaija’s boss on the next step and he responded saying,
‘I’m not saying much, since that’s the way they want to do it, let them just pay me all the money they owe me, which is about N620,000. This is excluding the N25,ooo I spent every night during her last tour of 8 clubs in Lagos’.
The relationship between Toby Grey and her management company began on February 13, 2015 and at the moment has been terminated.
At the time of the report, Toby Grey herself is yet to respond to our queries and hasn’t picked our calls either.
