Skales and balances – is it about talent or the record label?

Skales-1I have watched with keen interest, how Skales’ career has exploded in our faces in recent months. And it has forced to begin to think.

While he was at EME Records, the rapper-singer was neatly tucked away in Wizkid’s shadow and it seemed he will forever play back-up or B-list.

And then, Banky W released him.

“I just believe in doing things myself, I have big dreams, and there are things I want to do, and people don’t understand me, but as time goes on, they will get used to it, I am one of the few people that believe success is the best revenge, I am not ready for any beef, I think I have grown,” Skales said at that time.

Truer words haven’t been spoken.

Since he was signed onto Baseline, Skales has come into his own, dropping hits after hits.

It begs the question: is it always about the talent or the record label?

Skales’ talent has never been in question, but maybe he was under the wrong label, who were more interested in milking Wizkid.

Now that Wizkid is gone, even Shaydee and Niyola continue to be trapped in the shadows. Seems Mr W doesn’t necessarily have a magic wand and stumbles onto these things?

Upcoming acts, take note.
