Tshego opens up on why he is still an independent artist



Tshego explains why he’s being an independent artist after departing former record label, Family Tree.

Taking to Twitter, he says Universal’s refusal to accept his fee got him independent.

“After Ghetto Ruff in 2014 I went on to tell Universal it’ll be R6 million minimum if they want the masters on 1 album. They refused, and that’s why I’m still independent.”

The father of one made it clear that he doesn’t settle for less, and he reads contracts before agreeing.

“Years back I was at the Ghetto Ruff studios, like I’d been doing everyday for many months. I started making “Out Here” in front of Lance Stehr, on the spot.”

“The next day he walks in and puts a contract on the table (without warning or prior conversation). All I read was “anything made in this studio will belong to..” and I packed my shit IMMEDIATELY AND LEFT.”
