Platnumz sought to clarify that WCB Wasafi is a record label that has invested heavily in the music business and whoever gets signed under the label has to adhere to the terms and conditions put in place.

He made it clear that he runs the label as a full-fledged business and that’s why everyone who wants to terminate his or her contract must part with a certain amount of money.

The Wasafi Media CEO and founder further stated that he invests a lot in all talents signed under his label and that’s why they blow up within a short period.

“We are in the music business but at first there were rumours that artistes are being exploited. It even reached the President but we explained ourselves saying this is business and they understood it from our point of view.

“So you can’t just leave when we have invested millions in your craft. I invest in these people, make ensure they have a name for themselves, plus shows so that we can also make money at the end of the day," Diamond explained.

Adding that; "If I wanted I could have invested that money in something else, but I choose to invest in entertainment. WCB artistes are some of the richest artistes right now because of the investment we put in them,".

The singer mentioned that his label has been nurturing superstars and he is proud of what they have achieved under his wings.

The explanations came days after his signee Rayvanny parted ways with his management after six years.

“It’s been six years since we started working together. My team, my family WCB Wasafi, love, and unity have been very instrumental in the success of our team...Thank you so much my family WCB Wasafi and my bother Diamond Platnumz for giving me an opportunity so that the world can witness my talent I was blessed by God to be able to help my family and reach where I’m now with lots of success,".
