Kanye West has taken it up upon himself to abolish “Shady Contracts” for artistes in the Music Industry.
One of the biggest palava music artiste over the world is shady contracts; not that these artistes are not somehow aware but it ends up glaring after months of signing and this always lead to ‘heavy blows’. Typical examples of artiste from Nigeria who have suffered this are Liter, May D, Kiss Daniel, Cynthia Morgan and many others.
“When I spoke to Katie Jacobs who is on the board of Vivendi we decided to create a “Y combinator” for the music industry so artist have the power and transparency to to be in control of our future … no more shady contracts … no more life long deals.” Kanye West tweeted.
“Contracts in all industries need to be simplified now. Complicated contracts are how businesses, music companies and sports take advantage of talent We will expose these contracts and make them transparent now support new talent, startups and amend all old contracts.”
Shedding more light, West says, “The Y Combinator started companies like Dropbox and Airbnb. For the first time, it cleaned up contracts and made venture capital transparent. It empowered start ups with the tools to succeed and grow their businesses. It changed the Silicon Valley game.”
On a rude finishing, and update in making this work, he says, “I’ll let you guys know how this goes… I was told to speak with Lucien Grange … I said I don’t speak with non billionaire employees… I need Arnaud De Puyfontaine to fly to meet me immediately ⛷”
