Singer Bien Aime Baraza, member of Sauti Sol who has in the recent past released solo projects says he wouldn't want to hold an artiste as it is inevitable for them to want to leave.

He said this as he weighed in on singer Rayvanny leaving WCB.

"I don't expect an artiste to stay. It's inevitable I don't expect Bensoul and Nvirri to be under Sol Generation forever I think after five years my work is done."

Bien added that having legal systems to held terminate contracts helps avoid bad blood.


"And if you look at Harmonize and Rayvanny, those relationships end after five years.

To mean that by year five, your signee should be a made man. So you must create legal systems to recoup that investment so that the contract can be terminated else, it will end badly."

Bien applauded Rayvanny for ending things with his label in an amicable way.

"I wouldn't want to hold up a signee ati they can't release a song ,no, So I think the way Rayvanny did was very amicable and nice I also feel like Diamond is an investor in Rayvannys business which makes sense.


because for example if Bensol leaves us, he shouldn't go start his label and make the same mistakes I did It should be taking the culture forward. We have alot to learn from these guys."


Bien is ready to let Nviiri The Storyteller and Bensol leave and be on their own as they are already grown and are able to stand by their own.

Rayvanny exited WCB last month after five years of being signed by the Diamond Platnumz-onwed music label.

In his goodbye message, Rayvanny said;

"It's been six years since we started working together, my team, my family WCB Wasafi, the love, unity has been a very strong pillar as a team,"

"I have learnt a lot from the team and also, we have achieved much as a team. You have raised me and nurtured my talent,"

Rayvanny stated that him leaving WCB marked a new beginning for him.

"It is my time to leave home and start a new life. The aim is to grow and also it is to create an opportunity for other artistes. I

leave and others get helped. I will be helping other young musicians wherever I am going. I was helped to get to this level."
