Following the Cynthia Morgan conversation on her split with Northside record label, Artiste May D is revealing the terrible conditions he faced while under Square Records owned by the singing duo Psquare.
According to May D, he was sleeping in a TV carton in Psquare’s Boysquarters even after he had hit songs under the label.
He took to his Twitter to reveal the news after Cynthia Morgan now Madrina spoke up on how harshly she was treated under Northside label owned by Jude Okoye, brother to Psquare.
Cynthia gave an interview to Miss Globe Nigeria, Cassandra, where she spoke extensively about her rift with the label. She lost the rights to her music name which is also her birth name, her Vevo account, Instagram account, and rights to her music.
Peter Okoye, co-owner of Northside label, while responding to Cynthia Morgan’s claims said he did what he had to do to protect his freedom and not for money.
See his tweet below
My dear C Morgan, The decision i made 3yrs ago was never about the firm,money or power! It was for my FREEDOM!💪🏾
Sad you rejected the contract i gave u. Just because they made you see me like the bad egg. I pray you understand that God has a purpose for everything. Never give up

The conversation on the gullibility of artistes while signing record deals is one that will always come up. Recall that May D joined Square Records in 2011. He then featured on a remix of ‘Chop My Money’ by P Square and alongside Akon.
A short while after, Square Records also shot the videos for May D’s mega-hit songs ‘Soundtrack’ and ‘Ile Ijo’.
May D however did not have any signed record deal with the label before they produced and marketed his music.
According to sources, the only contract the artist had with Square Records was verbal. By the time they sat down to have a signed deal with May D, he made demands they could not meet which caused them to sever all ties with him in 2012.
