Naira is trying to stay ahead of the petitions filed against him - Spencer shared
Legit.ng, in a bid to get a good grasp of the record label situation, we reached out to singer Mr. Spencer to give an understanding of the emerging discovery. He said:
"I don't think he just signed with the label, he must have been with them even before he started his own label. Also, I don't think he has dumped his Marlian records but it is possible that he has moved his discography and put it in their care so that revenue accrued to him on streaming platforms won't be stopped."
Spencer continued saying:
"I think he is just trying to be ahead of those petitions writing against him so that his cash inflow doesn't stop."
